  • 1

    Begin with straight, dry hair.

  • 2

    Apply NEVO Detail Shine & Define Polish to palms. Have your client lean their head all the way back. Smooth and contain all the hair back to create a sleek, high ponytail. NEVO Detail immediately smoothes and holds hair in place while adding extreme shine—the perfect tool when creating ponytails.

  • 3

    Divide the ponytail in half.

  • 4

    Braid each half of the ponytail.

  • 5

    Melt NEVO Lived-In in palms to add texture and grit to the braids. With product in hand, pinch and separate each braid to loosen.

  • 6

    Pull the first braid forward, across the parietal ridge and front hairline. Pin to secure.

  • 7

    Pull the second braid forward, across the parietal ridge and just behind the first braid. Pin to secure.

  • 8

    Checking the balance, pin to secure. With a bristle brush, lightly brush loose pieces out around the front-side hairline using a bristle brush to deconstruct the crown of braids.
