Desert Blossom | Spring Hair Trends

Lainee Read

Author Lainee Read | Social Media Manager, Sam Villa

With Coachella around the corner, a girl can't go wrong with a perfectly messy braid. The mixed rumpled braid isn't only flawless, but effortless for festival season!

Let's get started!

DesertBlossom-1 To prep the hair, Audrey used Redken Full Frame 07 taking horizontal sections and spraying from roots to mid shaft. Using her favorite lightweight Sam Villa Ionic Professional Blow Dryer she round brushed each section with the Sam Villa Thermal Styling brush to add volume to the hair.
DesertBlossom-2 Then she quickly curled her hair using her Sam Villa for Redken Straightening and Shaping iron, and softly shook out the tendrils to create a loose, beachy wave.
DesertBlossom-3 To create even more volume, Audrey texturized her crown with the Sam Villa for Redken Volume and Texturizing iron. This iron seriously is changing hair lives!
DesertBlossom-4 Using her fingertips to invigorate the texture to create a finished volume at the crown.
DesertBlossom-5 Now let's begin the braid!
DesertBlossom-6 Let me tell you, this braid is super simple. Begin with your typical three strand braid.
DesertBlossom-7 Once you have three or four full plaits created secure the braid with an elastic.
DesertBlossom-8 Pancake the braid to add width and more character
DesertBlossom-9 Split the middle section and begin a fishtail braid. Once you are halfway down the section, braid to the bottom, secure, and fluff; the messier, the better!
DesertBlossom-10 Spray with Redken's control addict 28 for this style to last until twilight.

Luckily, if you're a gal with extensions, like Audrey is, this look is perfect after a few days in the heat with only your Redken Pillow Proof dry shampoo to save you! The soft Balayage Monarch Extensions gives you the freedom to go long, without the hassle of growing it out, because who has time for that? Audrey is wearing the brown honey kissed tape-in extensions, perfect for adding the perfect shine lights and dimension to the hair!
