Not Your Mother’s Braided Hairstyles at Orlando Premier Hair Show
As women we are constantly looking for ways to enhance our looks. Sometimes we try to curl our hair a different way, try a new roller set, or maybe even a new haircut and color. Then there is also the option of adding accessories to enhance what you may already have going on. You can go to your local beauty supply, Target, or even Walmart to purchase clips, bows, scarves, and other pieces that capture your personal creativity. There was even a fad of wearing colored feathers a couple of years back that took us all by storm. As we utilized these different accessories we began to feel more stylish in our own way.
However, as a professional hairstylist and makeup artist I am always open to learn and receive new ideas in the wonderful world of beauty. On a recent escapade to invoke the student in me, I headed to the Orlando Premier Hair Show. As always I left with a host of new ideas and a burst of creative energy. I was intrigued as I watched well-known platform artists take hair designing to new heights with braids.
You can make the looks as elegant as you like or contour a neat or messy everyday look. The versatility is what captured me.
These styles are great if you like to wear your hair half up and half down as well. You see, a lot of this has been done to a certain extent, but it was the new energy and techniques that captured me.
By the looks of things, your professional stylist will begin to offer more arrays of braid styles in the salon for all occasions.
You will begin to see that your own braided hair can be the accessory that you may be looking for. Your options vary with all the different 3 strands, twist, and coils to create the looks. With these nine basic formats you can create an endless variety of braided hairstyles.
So as we delve further into the summer months and you’re looking for ways to accessorize your look and stay cool, this can be an option that’s at the top of your list.
And if you’re heading back to school this fall, you’re likely to see lots of braids on showing up campus. And why not with when you combine the low maintenance of braids with the high fashion, well what’s not to like?
