82 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | NOVEMBER 2017 News GIRLS GO OUT: Distressed Cornrow Bun Younger women love anything with Bohemian fl air this season, and braids always fi t that vibe! One technique that's popular in our salon is to create tight cornrow braids, then loosen and coil them into a low center or side bun. Loosen the braids with your fi ngers for a casual effect, and always leave the hairline area soft and wispy. Another nice touch is to loop one of the cornrow braids around the elastic that holds the bun. MOMS ON THE TOWN: Messy Bun with Braided Embellishment Clients in their 30s and 40s want to look stylish without seeming as though they tried too hard. One of our favorite looks is to start by creating a wide braid about an inch or inch and a half behind the perimeter across the head. Then gently lift the hair behind the braid and secure it with crisscrossed bobby pins to create a bump. Next, gather the rest of the hair in a loose, tousled chignon and pin the braid underneath the bun. The perimeter is softly curled, then pulled back into the bun, leaving a few soft tendrils to frame the face. Matrix Style Link Volume Fixer hairspray is our go-to when creating a soft upstyle. The overall effect is fresh, and the full shape is very fl attering. LADIES WHO LUNCH: Full, Polished Sets We fi nd many of our mature clients are wearing long bobs and they don't care to wear their hair up. So we have developed a beautiful, soft yet structured set that gives them lots of bouncy movement. Start with a smoothing product like the new Biolage 3Butter Control System Day Cream to soften hair, especially if there is a lot of gray that causes texture to become coarse. Start the blow-dry in front, creating a soft, curved shape around the face. Then work behind the hairline, blow-drying sections in a brick-lay pattern with a round brush. The brick-lay pattern prevents lines of demarcation. Clip each section in place with duckbill clips. After the entire head is set, spray hair with Style Link Texture Builder, which won't leave strands stiff, then use the cold shot button and a diffuser attachment to cool the hair and lock in the style. After the cold blast, release the clips and either comb through with a wide-tooth comb for a lived-in effect, or brush with a cushioned styling brush for a more polished, blended result.
