Presenting a young, fresh and confident hair look at New Zealand Fashion Week, Natasha King and her team from Matrix created statement braids for statement label, Pia. The extra shaping of the shells created a twist and had the audience looking twice. Whether daytime fun or nighttime events, the hairstyle presented can be worn at both and makes a statement while remaining on trend.

Create the look:
Distribute Smooth Setter through the hair from roots to ends and flat iron on medium heat with Heat Buffer. Introduce a centre part from front to nape and section off.
Complete an inverted French braid on each side with tight tension through to ends. Before tying off, work uniformly through each section of the braid to pull out each piece to create a shell effect. Once satisfied then tie off the ends and spray with Style Fixer to hold.
