When we woke up Sunday morning and saw the beautiful image of Kate Bosworth’s simple braid for Coachella, we knew we had to recreate the look! A nod to the baby braids from the Giamba SS15 runway show in Milan created by Orlando Pita, Bridget was happy to walk us through how she create Kate’s look below.
“The inspiration for Kate’s festival hair was a nod to the 90’s half up half down, grunge chic, slept in hair with a twist (or a braid!).”
GET THE LOOK:
“Starting on second day dry hair, take a small section (no larger than the width of the tip of your ring finger) of hair where you would normally have a center part. This section should end at the crown of your head, just before your head starts to curve.
Once this section is created, begin to make a cornrow braid towards your forehead. Finish the braid where your hairline stops on your forehead and make two sections by splitting the third strand of the braid. To secure the braid, use a small bobby pin. Push the pin up the middle of the braid as flat to the head as possible. Split the lengths of the hair around the face to create framing.
Next, sprinkle Kevin Murphy Powder Puff to lengths of hair for added texture. Then gather hair starting from the top of the ears back in to a half up half down knot. Secure with a clear elastic band. Let any pieces around the face fall down to tuck behind the ears.
Finish the look using Bumble and bumble Does It All Hairspray.”
