Starting with dry hair, create a defined center part and begin braiding at the hairline, carefully continuing a thin, definitive braid down the center-part. Use Motions Shine Enhancing Pomade on fingertips while braiding to smooth hair and provide a better grip. “When I saw David’s sketches, I knew I had to create braids,” says Stephen. “They speak to the South African heritage.”
Next, section the top portion of hair in a horseshoe shape and secure with clips. Using a medium sized curling barrel, curl the remaining hair using the Motions Light Hold Working Spritz to set the curls. Once all hair is curled, gently brush curls out and tease in sections from root to end.
Using a flat brush, gently smooth the surface of the teased hair and section into two halves, securing each with a clear elastic. Carefully roll each section under, secure tightly with pins and shape the hair into a faux bob.
Remove the horseshoe section of hair from clips and use a crimping iron to create texture. Once crimps are set, gently brush out and carefully lay hair over the faux bob foundation, tucking under with pin.
Set the look with a touch of Motions Light Hold Working Spritz.
