Since its formal debut in 2010, the LaQuan Smith fashion label has always generated pieces for the sexy and confident woman, so naturally the hair for the spring summer 2016 show would be just as special. We caught up with hairstylist Kazuma Murata of SheaMoisture who looked to the classic woman from the 60’s for inspiration. “I wanted the look to be strong, but feminine—just like his collection.” Follow the steps below to create the updo at home.
Step 1: Start by working in SheaMoisture Professional Smooth Finish Thermal Protection to fight frizz and nourish hair prior to styling.
Step 2: With a large round brush, separate hair into medium sized sections and blow dry using SheaMoisture Professional Smooth Finish Blow Dry Cream.
Step 3: Separate hair into two sections; from the upper crown up to the bottom half down. With the upper section of hair, set aside a few wispy pieces, then braid the rest of the hair completely before twisting into a bun. Pin the bun at the base of the crown using large bobby pins.
Step 4: For the bottom half of the hair, spritz a bit of SheaMoisture Fruit Fusion Coconut Water Weightless Texture Spray then brush through. Lift this section of hair to cover the bun at the base then twist inward, creating lift and a bouffant-like shape. Secure with bobby pins.
Step 5: Finish by spraying SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hold & Shine Moisture Mist for hold and hydration.
