Soft, ‘60s Texture

close formula

Retro hair—complemented by tons of texture, movement and bounce—has never been more in-demand, and we’re loving this boho take on the trend by International Sebastian Artist Anthony Cole. Bonus? It’s a perfect look to teach your clients for some added value during a salon visit! “I teach this technique to my clients going away to a destination wedding,” says Anthony. “They love it.” Here’s how Anthony created this amazing texture.

    Starting at the temple, create a three-strand braid, leaving out an inch or two at the bottom (which will create a softer, more organic feel). Work your way around the head, creating about nine braids total (three on each side and three in the back). The braids in the front should be smaller than the braids in the back.
