HOW TO: The Curtain Braid

HOW TO: The Curtain Braid

“Nicholas Penna Jr, owner/lead stylist of SalonCapri in Boston presents his spring 2014 trend forecast, with hair styles inspired by some of the hottest looks from the catwalks of New York Fashion Week. Amongst them is an intricate, basket-weave bun with intertwining pieces of hair formed into a breathtaking updo; a new kind of braid—peek a boo style; and what we would like to call an “un-braided” mermaid tail. Get excited to try some of these out on your clients in the salon.

Here, he shows you how to create the peek-a-boo “Curtain Braid.”

STEP 1: Comb through dry hair thoroughly, removing all tangles. Use a flatiron to achieve stick-straight locks.

STEP 2: Part hair over the left eyebrow. Grab a 1-inch deep section of hair from the lesser side, and begin an outside French braid. Continue braiding along the curvature of the hairline until you reach the back of ear. Transition to regular braid. Secure braid with a clear hair elastic at the bottom.

STEP 3: Pull a 2-inch section of hair on dominant side across forehead. Tuck behind ear.

STEP 4: Drape braid around back of head, looping underneath loose hair. Secure with bobby pins. Finish with a light hold hairspray.”
