The perfect date-night look - the tight, but not uptight, double headband. Here's how to get the look with Kérastase.

For over 50 years Kérastase have led the way in advanced hair science, elevating haircare to the status normally reserved for high end luxury skin care. So there’s no better brand to inspire our party season hair! Want an effortless yet stylish do for your Christmas socialising? Look no further. This contemporary braided look takes no time at all and will see you from desk to dinner through festive season and beyond.

Step One 

Spray Kérastase Matérialiste generously into your hands and apply to your hair from root to tips. Matérialiste is an all-over thickening spray gel, which will grip to your hair fibres and add instant body for denser and thicker-looking hair. Section the hair down the middle in two parts.

Step Two

Create a three-strand braid on the left section going upwards from the nape to the back of the ear and direct around the front of the head. Continue to  braid this until complete, then secure with a hair band and repeat on the right side.

Step Three

Cross one braid over your head like a headband and pin it securely in place. Don’t worry too much about being neat when pinning this braid, as you can ensure the second braid is placed over the top of any visible pins.

Step Four

Once the first braid is securely pinned, repeat the process on the other side. Ensure you’re crossing the second braid over the first and once you’re happy with how this looks, pin it in place. To finish, spray Laque Couture Hairspray.
