Ciara’s Double Crown Braid
It’s pretty well known in the beauty industry that if you want to see some amazing hair, Paris Fashion Week is the place to be. Just take this tribal-inspired double braided crown seen on Ciara last night at the H&M show. The gorgeous style was created by MIZANI Global Artistic Director Cesar Ramirez, who shared all the details about Ciara’s look!
“I usually always attend Ciara’s fittings—it helps me get inspired and prepare for the looks we will be doing,” shares Cesar. “When I saw the look at the H&M showroom, I wanted to play off the fun patterns in the dress. I immediately thought something tribal, twisted, dreaded and maybe frizzy would complete her look.”
Artist: César Ramirez
To start, Cesar parted the hair down the center from the front hairline to the crown. Then from the crown down to the neck, he zigzag parted to create an invisible part in the back.
Next, Cesar started braiding down each side off the part using MIZANI DEFYNE WAX to really detail the braids. Once he started braiding off the head, he switched to a fishtail braid.
Cesar then took a separate bundle of loose hair (custom blended) to match her color and made a long, separate fishtail braid. He crossed and pinned the two loose ends in the back to sit right above the neck, then pinned in the separate fishtail like a headband behind the previous braid.
He then pulled on each strand of each braid and lightly sprayed MIZANI SHYNE Bodifying Sheen Spray for slip, which created all the loose, frizzy texture.
Cesar finished the look with MIZANI HRM Humidity Resistant Mist for hold.
