Get the Look: Twisted Braids with Joana Neves

Get the Look: Twisted Braids with Joana Neves

As featured in this season's Essential Looks collection, the Punk Spirit Salon Look showcases a cool blend of pastel colors and a modern take on school-girl braids.

 

Global Schwarzkopf Professional Color Ambassador Lesley Jennison (@lesleyjennison) used Chroma ID to create hand-painted, ice-cream pastel shades on a white blond base. After seeing the beautiful color result, Ambassador Joana Neves (@joananeves) decided that the best way to really showcase it was to style with an elevated braided technique.

 

Joana Neves shares her steps:

 

"We wanted to create something really different… color that's concealed and revealed through the braiding"

 

Step 1

 

Step 1
  • “To make the most of the pure white blond and pastel colors, we went for a really cool, extreme length”

Step 2

 


Step 2
  • “Three strand braids are easy to do at home and are the simplest way to show off beautiful colors”

Step 3

 


Step 3
  • “Working with 4 or 5 strands makes this a really interesting styling technique – every angle gives a 3D effect, and new perspective on the color”

Step 4

 


Step 4
  • “As the final color is a spectrum of hand-applied stripes, it looks really cool weaving intense pastels into immaculate braids”

Step 5

 


Step 5
  • “To get a really rounded result, twist and braid at the same time – and keep it immaculate from top to bottom”

Step 6

 


Step 6
  • “Use clear elastics to secure the braid (this keeps the focus on the color and 3D braid effect)… and remember! If you’re creating braids using 4 or 5 strands in the salon, it becomes a service”
