Incorporate a length of colorful cord to upgrade your braids. Leave one side loose to show off your curls.


Step 1

Begin with damp hair (prep with Advanced Climate Control® Defrizzing Shampoo and Conditioner and Detangling Heat Spray for frizz-free results).

Step 2

Apply Advanced Climate Control® Featherlight Styling Cream using the Rake and Shake technique: Rake a nickel-size amount of cream through each section of hair. Hold the ends of the section and shake curls into place.

Step 3

Use a towel to scrunch curls—this removes excess water and helps curls look more defined.

Step 4

Blow dry with a diffuser.

Step 5

Once hair has dried, create two sections for braids. Tie a length of cord or ribbon around one of the sections.

Step 6

Braid each section, weaving in the cord.

Step 7

Pin the braids at the nape of your neck to create a side-swept style.
