Get the Look Long Twist Braid

Songstress Kelly Rowland teamed up with celebrity hair stylist Kim Kimble to recreate iconic looks. This particular hairstyle was inspired by the beautiful Sade who famously wore her hair pulled back into a sleek braid. Here is a little visual evidence of Sade’s fab hair look:

Now that you got the hair it is now time to put everything together and create the hairstyle! Here is how:

1. Apply an alcohol free gel or pomade to tresses and brush strands back until smooth then secure with a hair tie.

2. Use a second hair tie to anchor extensions to the created ponytail.

3. Grab a small portion of the hair then wrap the section around the hair ties in order to camouflage them. Use bobby pins to lock the wrapped section of hair in place.

4. Twist the ponytail hair then secure the end of the twisted braid with one more hair tie.

5. Mist hair with a light hair oil for shine as well as a light hairspray to keep the style in place.
