We’ve all sported some variation of the braid…and why wouldn’t we?! So versatile it can be worn on any occasion, easy to do and super chic. Case in point? Alessandra Ambrosio. She embraced this look for the ále by Alessandra campaign and launch party. Here are simple tricks to get her look.
Aaron King, of the Chris McMillan Salon in Beverly Hills, created an effortlessly stylish look for Alessandra’s launch party. He upped the ante on the wavy, side-swooped hair by adding three braids. Just above the swoop, in the back, Aaron took two braids and twisted them around. He held the braided swirl in place with bobby pins. To finish off the look, a classic third braid was created and fastened at the end with a barely there elastic band. Perfection for a night of celebration.
