close formula

Fashion Week inspires the trends and styles that trickle down through celebrities and eventually end up on the heads of your salon clients. To help create these runway-worthy looks every day behind the chair, Wella Professionals created EIMI, a new fashion-inspired styling line that celebrates style through a global language of individuality. The multi-faceted, multi-performance nature of the new styling range is designed to work together for endless styling opportunities, helping you develop and express whatever hairstyle your clients envision. Here, Wella Professionals Top Artist Michael Haase, crafts an intricately laced braid fit for both the catwalk and 5th Avenue. Here’s how he did it using EIMI’s wide range of products.

HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Clean the hair with Wella Professionals Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner

  • 2

    Then apply Wella Professionals EIMI Extra Volume Mousse from roots to ends and dry the hair in sections with a round brush beginning in front and moving back. 

  • 3

    “The styling of Sandra’s braid was really fun,” notes, Michael. Add Wella Professionals EIMI Sugar Lift to create a shiny grip to the hair and spray Wella Professionals EIMI Dry Me for a beautiful clean, fluffy feeling with the slightest amount of matte texture. 

  • 4

    The hair was then completely prepped and ready for shaping the braid and keeping complete control of the manipulation of the hair. 

  • 5

    The braid is a double braid, one on each side, and then sewn together with a few strands of hair as thread from the crown.

    6

    Placing a small bit of Wella Professionals EIMI Perfect Me between your fingers, begin releasing and softening the braid to give it an almost slept-in look.

  • 7

    Use Wella Professionals EIMI Dry Me once again for the matte finish and a little more Wella Professionals EIMI Perfect Me in your palms, slightly rubbing around the head for a greater halo effect, releasing the softest ends for light to pass through the shape.
