WATCH: Justine Marjan Gives WeWoreWhat a Bada$$ Heavy Metal Braid

festival braids braid charms we wore what justine marjan ouai haircare

When WeWoreWhat‘s Danielle Bernstein stopped by OUAI Headquarters, our Editorial Director Justine Marjan (braid-boss behind Kim Kardashian’s cornrows) whipped up a blinged-out inside-out French braid just in time for ‘chella. Watch the step-by-step video below, then follow Justine’s steps to recreate the festival-af look on yourself.



  1. Prep hair with OUAI Wave Spray then blowdried it in with a Harry Josh Pro Tools Blowdryer to give the hair a piecey texture.
  2. Use a rat tail comb to create a deep side part.
  3. If your hair is super smooth, prep strands by spraying OUAI Dry Texturizing Spray over the section you are about to braid.
  4. Starting at the hairline, create an inside out 3-strand braid, adding hair with each section as you braid down the hair.
  5. When you get to the nape of the neck, criss cross two bobby pins to the scalp to secure. NOTE: The ridged side of the bobby pin lays against the head.
  6. Use OUAI Dry Shampoo over the braid to give the hair a matte finish, then use your fingers to detail.
  7. Use metal rings (we used hoop earrings from H&M) to loop over random sections of the braid.
