Hopefully you read my previous post, Now Trending : #MOLLY
so you have already met my sweet friend.
Sponsoring Molly for her high school Scholarship Pageant has been so much fun.
And I think the "Trending" theme has been perfect.
With our next look we did a super popular and timeless half up half down.
So to give it some real boom pow we worked with the golden extensions that we had previously put in her hair. This gives tons of Oomph to work with as well as adding a lot of texture to her final look. Separating off her crown section, we backcomb to give a base and lift. Just a few push downs with the teasing comb does all you need. Then pin this section at the base of the cushion
(where you backcombed).
Working on the right side, take her front section
(leaving out a few soft strands) and pull it over the pinned cushion and secure.
Now is the fun part. Take the hair from the left side (leaving a few, soft strands out here as well) and pull back towards the crown. Braid this section.
Drape the braid over the cushion and pin!
Make sure to tuck the ends under for a polished finish.
So there you have it, a unique new look for a half up half down. It's timeless and romantic but can still be playful. You could always take this to a more elegant look by simply curling the hair with big waves. Brush it out with a dressing brush such as a Mason Pearson and you would have gorgeous glam.
Hope you like this look! Let me know what you think?
I've got a little more to show you from Molly's Trending day. Hopefully these looks are "trendy" and "classic" at the same time because really the CLASSICS make the best TRENDS.
