Summer Braid Style Tips from Umberto Savone
The best way to prep the hair is by working with the hair’s natural oils. Begin styling with hair that hasn’t been washed in a day, this way your hair will have natural oils which offer hold and control any fly-aways.
To start, separate the top layer of hair into three sections. Braid the middle section back to the crown, and repeat for both side sections. Pull the braids loose at the top so they are not too flat.
For extra hold, you can secure braids with an invisibobble Nano.
Finish the look by spraying UMBERTO Beverly Hills Regular Hold Hairspray for separation and hold.
