Rock and Romance Braid by Sharon Blain

Braids have stood the test of time but have come a long way from their school-girl roots. Sharon Blain presents this look from her On The Set collection—dishevelled texture worked into a rock star quiff makes for an undeniably hip take on the classic fishtail braid.

    Make a 3cm square section on the crown in line with the top of the ears. Gently back comb this section and place a band at the root and loop the hair into a top knot. This will act as a base to sew the hair.

    Use a plastic needle with clear nylon thread that is doubled and knotted at the end. Start at the sides and direct the hair back and up to the crown using your fingers. Sew the sections of hair through the top, knotting the hair to secure.
