J MENDEL NYFW SS16 JAMES PECIS We’ve seen everything from sophisticated twisted buns, to desert braids from Mane Master James Pecis at NYFW this year, and his loose, feminine tucked braid for J Mendel is just another stroke of genius for the celebrity stylist.

The Spring and Summer 2016 presentation takes its inspiration from Japanese paintings and print-making, both created by a delicate, handmade process. The sorbet-colored collection features light, airy, super-feminine designs, which are perfectly paired with Pecis’ polished, breezy braid. James explains how to recreate the look for Beauty.com using PHYTO below… J MENDEL NYFW SS16 JAMES PECIS GET THE LOOK:

  1. Prep hair with PHYTO Phytovolume Actif Volumizing Spray. Work in from root to ends
  2. Curl with a 1 1/2″ curling iron and part hair slightly off to the left
  3. Apply PHYTO Phyto Professional Matte Texturizing Paste from root to ends to create separation
  4. Start a very loose braid from the crown down, adding hair as you go. Braid to end then secure with an elastic
  5. Roll braid up inside and pin. Secure with bobby pins
  6. Finish with PHYTO Phytolaque Soie Light Hold Hairspray


We can’t wait to experiment with this carefree, chic braid!
