Women with long hair who prefer wearing relaxed, bohemian hairstyles. On the catwalk, braids had a messy, bed-head look
about them, which added a feminine feel to the look. The wet-look effect combined with a tight braid would appear far too strict and is not a good look for anyone, so stick to the loose version for optimum results. How to create the wet-look braid.
This style generally requires long hair to re-create the catwalk look. Brush hair thoroughly with a comb, then allow to dry naturally. Don’t bother straightening your locks. Once hair is dry, apply a styling product
which will give your hair an added shine. Opt for gel if you need both a styling and strong-hold product. If you only require a glossy shine, then choose Shine Spray. When you have evenly distributed the product throughout your hair, you can start braiding the lengths. Try not to pull the strands of your braid too tightly and tease out a few sections to give your style a relaxed, laid-back finish. © Pixelformula / Just Cavalli prêt-à-porter runway, Spring-Summer 2014 © Jean Louis David
