Sunsilk Co-Creators, Jamal Hammadi, selected two hairstyles which stood out to him from this year\’s red carpet, and shows us how to recreate them at home:
“I spotted a lot of diversity on the Red Carpet at the Oscars this year, which was refreshing and simple. BÃ©rÃ©nice Bejo opted for a braided up-do that would work brilliantly as a day-to-night look. My other favourite included Gwyneth Paltrow\’s refreshing take on the ponytail, with a really low pony and every hair perfectly in place.
Jamal’s Simple Steps to create – â€˜Bejo\’s Braids\':
Step 1:The distinguishing feature of Bejo\’s look is healthy hair with vibrant colour and luscious shine. First step to achieving this is using a great shampoo and conditioner, which will accentuate your natural shine.
Make sure you use a gentle shampoo followed by a conditioner which is high in moisture and will therefore nourish your hair. Try to stay away from products that have too many drying agents in them, instead using products that are nourishing as well as designed to style. Try using my Sunsilk Co-creations Addictive to Brilliant Shine, Shampoo and Conditioner.
Step 2: After drying your hair off, to further boost shine and hold the hair in place, apply a small amount of Sunsilk Co-creations, Addictive to Brilliant Shine, Silky and Texturising Wax. Starting half way down the hair, comb it through to the ends for an even spread. Use the comb to create a side-part on the side that best suits your face.
Step 3 section the hair: Taking the heavy side of the part, start at the part and French plait across the hairline to the ear, continuing it down and round to the bottom of the hairline.
Step 4: Keeping hold of the end of the plait, tie this with the rest of your hair back into a neat bun. Finish off with the Sunsilk Co-creations, Addictive to Brilliant Shine, Silky and Texturising Wax, applying it to the ends of the hair, to keep them clean and in place.
