We LOVE today’s TuesTorial by Sierra Smith, Cosmetology student at La’ James International College. This Braided Half Up Faux-Hawk look is both simple & cool! Get the tips here and try it out.

What you need: 

  • Hair Elastic
  • Hairspray

YUP… that’s it!! We told you this one was easy!

Step 1: Start with your hair down. You can choose to do this look curly or straight.

Step 2: Section off a small portion of the hair at the top of the head & pin out of place.

Step 3: Section off 2 small portions along each side of the head, directly below your top section. Then secure with an elastic.

Step 4: Release your top section and create a basic french braid. Finish off with your favorite hair spray!

Get creative and play around with this look. You can easily switch up the feel just by changing your braid style…. Maybe a Fishtail, Dutch Braid or even a Rope Twist. Give it a try!!

Excellent job Sierra! Thank you for the great tips & for participating in today’s #LjicTuesTorial!
