From The Pro’s
Row braids in the back with the topknot is a bit unusual, which is why we love this look. The hair is pulled away from the face while leaving a few tendrils for a face-frame to add softness. "We’re using Braid Aid here for a bit of setting power and a bit of grip. It’s a great product to help prepare your hair for braids. We’re blow drying the hair away from the face using Guts 10 to give it smooth volume for the knot on top. I find the finished look a bit tomboyish in a way, with a feminine twist." - Redken Global Creative Director Guido Palau about the Dior SS17 Show.

This one is for the very skilled at-home braider or simply save it for your next salon visit. The key to this look is clean sections. You would need to tip your head forward starting the micro-french braids from the nape of the neck. Or, you can take our favorite route to this edgy chic yet sweet style, ask your stylists to recreate it in the salon. Your stylist should be able to complete this style in under a half hour and have you back out on the street turning heads in no time.
