Laura Siegel constructed a desert wonderland with techniques such as leather embossing, braiding, and shibori tie-dying, and TIGI wanted to incorporate her aesthetic into their hair designs. The end result created by Heath Grout, TIGI’s Creative Director, was a rough, textured, non-traditional look with braids with gorgeous splashes of color. Here is how he got the look:
Prep severely parted hair with Catwalk by TIGI Session Series Sea Salt Spray and Catwalk by TIGI Session Series Transforming Dry Shampoo to achieve a really dry, rough texture.
Randomly divide the hair into five or six different sections, depending on your hair density.
For each section, separate hair into three uneven pieces – spraying one piece with a temporary florescent hair color of your choice – and continue to braid. Each braid should vary in width and texture – the key to this look is not to be “too perfect”.
Using the Catwalk by TIGI Session Series Transforming Dry Shampoo, use your fingers to further rough up the ends of each braid.
Next, snake each braid in different directions around the head and secure with pins.
Secure the look by spraying it down with Catwalk by TIGI Session Series Work It Hairspray.
