OK! Magazine: Why is this a sexy look for a Saturday night date or party?

JB : "This look is really instant glam for a Saturday night date or party because it shows off your face beautifully and is really handy if you are having trouble styling your hair that evening. Also, it is fantastic for all hair types."

OK!: How can you recreate it at home?

JB: My must have product for this look would be dry shampoo. I love Redken Powder Refresh 01 as it really helps to give some grip and texture to your hair so you can more easily.


-Section off the top of your hair from temple to temple and down to the nape of the neck.

-Section the side sections and keep them to one side.

-Day old hair is best, as it will be more manageable, or you can use a little dry shampoo to make the hair less sleek.

-Start braiding the top section of hair an inch or 2 from the hairline.

-You can do two separate braids—there really are no rules as you can braid in the sections of hair at the back and the nape to recreate this look.

-Take the side sections and tie them into two very small sections right in the center of the nape and braid right down to the ends.

-Bring these two braids up and use U-shaped pins to anchor into position with the other braids.
