Hair How-to – Whimsical Romance in Braids
Inspired by the romantic and whimsical line from the first runway show by husband-wife duo, The Brock Collection, lead hairstylist James Pecis created a look pretty enough for a royal. Hair was blown to a full, voluminous dry; fluffy to the touch. Following the smooth blowout, curls were added to strands and finger brushed through. Once the base of the look was created, James pulled 1-inch thick strands from each ear and created a knot at the center of the head. He followed the hair downwards and weaved the strands into a braid, leaving about 3 inches from the bottom. Strands were secured with a tiny hair band. James then loosened the look by pulling small stands out to frame and flow around the face. The end result was ethereal, with a brocade barrette to match.
Prep the Look – How to Get Healthy Hair
To prep for this whimsical, voluminous hairstyle, Pecis relies on hair supplements to help achieve and maintain luscious, thick locks. For years, James has trusted Viviscal and has turned his many clients onto the brand because, as he says, “It’s the only supplement that works!” He insists that taking Viviscal supplements regularly is the best way to get a model-worthy mane that is both beautiful and healthy.
Trusted by stylists, models and physicians in the health and beauty industries, Viviscal Extra Strength offers thinning, dry and dull hair a much-needed oomph of volume, imparting a lustrous shine and softer touch. Not only does Viviscal make over the appearance of the hair, but the overall health improves, elasticity increases, and the density of each strand is thicker and longer.
