Get The Look.

Effortless Braid 1. Prepare hair with Evo Day of Grace Pre-Style Primer, then dampen hair with a liberal dose of Evo Salty Dog Salt Spray.
Effortless Braid 1 2.  Create a deep side part, working to the side that best suits the face shape.
Effortless Braid 2 3. Using the Evo Spike 22” Brush, blow-dry the hair with a curve in it, to help create a swoop that will go across the forehead. Rough dry the rest of the hair, encouraging the hair’s natural texture and any imperfections to create an effortless finish.
Braid 4 4. Starting at the top of the ears, pull hair back and start braiding close to the head below the crown. Roughly braid hair down the head leaving out an inch of hair at the nape.
Effortless Braid 6 5. Loosen a few strands of hair from the braid and the front hairline for a slightly imperfect look, and spritz with Evo Builder’s Paradise Working Hairspray for a workable hold.
Effortless Braid 6 6. Fluff a few strands of hair at the crown and mist with Evo Shebang-a-bang Dry Spray Wax.
