Trendy Basket Weave Updo Hairstyle
Marquita Briggs created this elegant look using a beautiful basket weave technique to form the base. As the hairstyle travels to the top, it is transformed into a sultry two-strand twists updo. The look is elegant, yet bold.
Marquita gave her model a custom hair color process also. She chose hues of red that would both stand out and accentuate her model’s natural features. Once Marquita got the perfect color, she added some crimson red hair additions to add body to the updo. Synthetic pre-stretched braiding hair was used for the hair additions. The synthetic hair was the perfect blend for her model’s natural texture.
Prep Your Hair for an Elegant Updo
The first step to creating this trendy basket weave updo hairstyle is to properly prepare the model’s hair. Marquita started out applying a clarifying shampoo and conditioner to prepare the hair for the color. Because this look was created on the model’s natural hair, it will require more moisture than chemically treated hairstyles.
The hair additions in the top will also form a protective barrier to shield your hair from the harsh conditions of your daily environment. Marquita also gave her model a protein treatment to give her model’s hair a healthy foundation. The two-strand twists in the top form a stunning updo in the top and the vibrant red hair color elevates the style to a whole new level.
Taking Care of This Trendy Basket Weave Updo Hairstyle at Home
Marquita Briggs made sure her client would have an easy time taking care of this elegant updo at home. She designed this trendy basket weave updo hairstyle to look elegant and be easy to maintain. Marquita says that to keep this hairstyle in tip-top shape, you need to simply use daily hair oils to infuse moisture and use some type of edge control or foam wrap at night. You should also wrap your hair at night in some form of silk or satin cloth.
