Super Pretty: Long Braids from Fekkai

Now I'm just a little sorry I cut my hair. Check out these gorgeous, romantic braids…

From the Runway to the Red Carpet
Trend Alert: Long Braids

Glamorous long braids were seen from the runways to the red carpet this season. At the Cannes Film Festival, Diane Kruger donned a romantic, chic braid at the photo call for Inglourious Basterds; at the Alexander Wang Spring 2010 Collection, models sported long and loose side braids; at the VMA’s Jennifer Lopez stepped out in a slick braid that fell into a loose ponytail; and at the Emmys, Blake Lively looked ultra glamorous in her glossy, long braid stemming from a tight pony tail. “These long braids are a modern take on an effortless goddess look” says Renato Campora for Frederic Fekkai. “They are for a woman who wants to be chic but still having a little bit of fun.”

Renato Campora for Frederic Fekkai who styled Blake Lively’s Luscious Long Braid for the Emmy’s shows us how to get the look:

Whether it’s a soft and sexy loose braid or a chic and strong braid, you can start out by applying FEKKAI COIFF™ STRONG HOLD VOLUME MOUSSE onto wet hair and blow-dry the hair smooth. Apply FEKKAI COIFF™ EXTRA CONTROL STYLING GEL to prep the hair and make it easier to braid. He then teased all the hair to add dimension to the braid. By adding some hair extensions, you can create extra length for a more dramatic look. For a classic braid, separate the hair into three parts and secure with clips. Afterward, braid the entire and fastened at the end. Finish by applying FEKKAI COIFF™ MAGNIFIQUE ULTRA-LIGHT FINISHING CRÈME throughout the entire look for a smooth and glossy effect.
