Find major bridal hairstyle inspiration on the runways of New York Fashion Week with thick, romantic braids by James Pecis. Celeb site HollywoodLife.com reports on the bejeweled braided hairstyle that James created for the runway at The Brock Collection fall 2016 show – which would be perfect for either bride or bridesmaid on the Big Day, or your next big night out. They also would be a good low-manipulation hairstyle if you’re aiming for big hair growth goals without the tightly pulled braids of Khloe Kardashian.
The Brock Collection is designed by a husband and wife duo, and their very first runway collection, for February’s New York Fashion Week, was designed to be whimsical and romantic. So the hair had to be girly and pretty. The hairstyle was stunning and surprisingly easy to do at home.
How NYFW Lead Hairstylist James Pecis Created the Look
“It was 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 inch-thick strands from each ear and created a knot at the center of the head, following the hair downwards and weaving the strands into a braid, leaving about three inches at the bottom.
“Strands were secured with a tiny hair band. James then loosened the look by pulling small strands out to frame and flow around the face. The end result was ethereal, with a brocade barrette to match.”
The Ultimate Romantic Bridal Hairstyle
The key to this look and any gorgeous look for bridal, means lots of thick, shiny, healthy hair. The whimsical romance needed relies on long, gorgeous locks. James has trusted Viviscal supplements for years, saying, “It’s the only supplement that works!” He has all of his clients and models take Viviscal to get a beautiful and healthy mane fit for the runway and real life.
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 it improves the overall look of health, and the density of each strand is thicker. Many celeb hairstylists (like Ted Gibson and Oscar Blandi) and celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow and Naomi Watts love Viviscal for thick, shiny hair, too.
