HOW-TO: NYFW SS16 Rachel Comey x James Pecis’ Desert Braids

Rachel Comey ss16 NYFW // Hair by James Pecis

To no surprise, James Pecis created the perfect braided feminine look for yesterday’s Rachel Comey SS16 show. To complement the ethereal desert vibes and earthy palette of the clothing, James created a “post-apocalytptic warrior” inspired hair style with waves full of frizz and texture and bundled braids. If you’re looking for your spring Coachella/Palm Springs look, this is definitely going to be the coveted style of the year.

James explains how to recreate the look for Beauty.com using PHYTO below…

  1. Prep the hair with Phytovolume Actif Volumizing Spray and rough dry it in. The goal is to get added volume and texture into the hair
  2. Roughly go through the hair section by section, adding in the Phyto Professional Matte Texturizing Paste. This will give the hair the tackiness to hold the look together.
  3. Divide the hair into five sections: one at the top, one on each side and two in the back.
  4. Within each of these sections, pull the hair back and tie the hair into square knots. The result will look like a knot-braid, which will be secured with an elastic hair band at the end.
  5. Finish by misting Phytolaque Soie Hairspray to keep in place.
