Braids have been around for years. They have also been a part of many cultures around the world. Owner, Billy Mercer of Lip Service XO stopped by and showed us how to incorporate three types of braids into a boho chic updo. First, Billy used a sea salt spray to texturize the models hair, and used a half inch curling wand to add volume and more texture. With the majority of the hair, Billy did a fishtail braid on the center back of the model’s head. Then on the left side he did a twist, and on the right side (the side with less hair strands) a normal braid. He then added fresh flowers to the crown (above the fishtail braid) and mixed all three braids together around the flowers creating a creative, effortless hairstyle.
