Nina Dobrev dazzled on the Teen Choice Awards Blue Carpet tonight debuting what stylist Riawna Capri calls “The Red Carpet Rope Braid. “ Riawna created the unique look by blowing drying Nina’s hair using the KMS California Freeshape Quick Blow Dry to cut down on drying time leaving more time for Capri to style to the hair. Once the hair was dry, Riawna used the KMS California Freeshape 2-in-1 styling and finishing spray before curling the hair with a 1-inch curling iron in big sections vertically to make a messy beach wave. Then Capri flipped over Dobrev’s hair and sprayed the KMS HAIRPLAY playable texture liberally to saturate the hair and create a disheveled texture.
To construct the unique rope braid, Riawna separated the hair into three sections, twisted them clockwise and then took those twisted sections and braided them counter clockwise to showcase distinct texture. Capri then spread out the braid and pulled out some loose pieces to frame Dobrev’s face and give an effortless look, sprayed her final masterpiece with the KMS California HairStay medium hold hairspray to keep the it in place.
The KMV Hair Stay HairSpray will hold your gorgeous braids in place and I should know. I've used this on my braids several times and they've held up quite well. Even if it's for the gym or a lazy day, my braids stay in their place.
