Get the look: Runway Braided Buns at NYFW 2014

For designer Bibhu Mohapatra Tibet-inspired fall collection, L’Oreal Professionnel hair stylist Amit Abraham crafted this gorgeous, sleek and sculptured look. “The upswept style we created is a modern interpretation of a traditional Tibetan braiding — where hair is an expression of beauty, wealth and prosperity,” he explained. Abraham breaks down how to get the look at home in his step-by-step tutorial. 

We promise it’s not as hard as it looks. But if you need a one on one session with our talented stylists to perfect the look, just call on luxelab at the Glen’s Tonya Le or luxelab Montana Ave’s Jen Beckerman. Both were backstage during New York Fashion Week and created this gorgeous style that graced the runway.

– Prep hair with L’Oréal Professionnel Volumetry Root Spray to add density before blow drying smooth
– Divide hair into 3 sections. Secure each section into a ponytail. Spray L’Oréal Professionnel Infinium 3 Hairspray along the parts for hold
– Apply L’Oréal Professionnel True Grip, a texturizing powder, to anchor the style before dividing the center ponytail into two sections, and box-braiding with two side ponytails. (Box-braiding is a technique used to create a three-dimensional braid by weaving four sections of hair together. Leave 2 ½ inches of the tail unbraided and secure with an elastic.)
– Wrap the braids in a circular shape at the back of the head, leaving the ends untucked; secure with pins. -Finish with L’Oréal Professionnel Freezing Mist for a long-lasting hold, and L’Oréal Professionnel Perfect Shimmer for shine.
