Alexander Wang Runway Hair Side Braid Tutorial

Get a Messy Side Braid à la Alexander Wang

We found this great braiding tutorial on OnSugar blog Temple of Glam. Check it out:

Since it's truly hotter than July, I got real summer hairstyle ideas from Ojon stylist Tippi Shorter, who has hooked up the locks of Gaga, Rihanna, and one of my all-time favorites, Ms. Diahann Carroll. Why not drink a gallon of water, sit atop your AC, and try one of these styles?

The Untidy Side Braid, inspired by Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2010:

  • Apply glossing cream to clean, damp hair to help prevent flyaways.
  • Dry hair.
  • Create a deep side part and direct hair to one side.
  • Apply a conditioning paste/wax to mold hair.
  • Start a French braid high on the head, keep it loose and casual by using three uneven pieces.
  • Continue the side braid all the way to the bottom.
  • Give the braid a slight shake to loosen it.
  • Secure braid with clear elastic.
  • Finish with shine spray.
