If there are two things amika Artistic Director Naeemah Lafond (@naeemahlafond) has mastered, it’s braiding and creating texture, and in this edgy style we’re sharing below, she does both. Scroll down for the details, then watch the video for an exact how-to.


Manufacturer: amika, @amikapro

Products Used



Create a side section (how big will depend on how much hair the client has) and braid a smooth, tight Dutch braid at the scalp.


Use amika Haute Mess Texture Gloss to keep the braid super sleek.


Pull the rest of the hair to the other side of the head, apply amika The Shield Anti-Humidity Spray and wave from roots to ends using the amika Confidante Moisture-Lock Styler.


Curl the hair in alternating directions and finish the waves with amika Un.Done Volume and Matte Texture Spray for serious volume.


Now watch the video how-to above!
