Selena Gomez looked chic in her “half way to LA” braid, created by stylist Riawna Capri, co-owner of Nine Zero One Salon. Her hair was done in this cool braid for an early birthday celebration.
Check out more views of this braid below (you have to see the back of her hair!) and also find out how to re-create this look on your own.
I love the back of Selena’s hair! The braid weaves around the crown of her head, leaving the rest of her hair flowing down her back.
Here is the top view of Selena’s braid, showing the braids coming off both sides of her part.
The Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev wore “the waterfall braid” to the Teen Choice Awards 2012. This look was also created by Riawna Capri of The Braid Bar at Nine Zero One.
Here is how to do it:
1. First smooth out your hair with your favorite smoothing balm, Capri used Wella Velvet Amplifier on Nina.
2. Then curl your hair with a 2 inch iron to give it body, then spray all over with a texture spray, like Oribes Apres Beach spray.
3. Lastly do your favorite halo braid. To cheat the Waterfall braid, simply braid 2 braids from your part back to your crown, then criss cross them and bobby pin in place.
This is an easy way to keep your hair out of your face, with a polished, effortless look!
