We loved Victoria Justice’s classic fishtail top knot, with an edgy blast of purple at the Harper’s Bazaar party at NYFW. Celeb stylist Paul Norton gave us the blow by blow:
Step 1: Start by tousling the hair dry with Joico Joiwhip.
Step 2: Smooth out all the edges around the hair line to create a ponytail
Step 3: Grab a thick triangle section from the top of the head and seperate it and clip the rest out of the way. Using Joico Instatint (Pink and or Orchid), spray in a swiping motion from roots to end. Tip: feel free to layer and incorporate one or both colors to intensify the look for an edgier appearance.
Step 4: Once the hair is completely covered with Instatint , take a blow dryer on cool to blow the hair down the shaft to help smooth it and dry the damp areas
Step 5: Spray the entire head lightly with Joico Hair Shake from roots to end
Step 6: Gather the hair into a high ponytail and confine with an elastic band.
Step 7: Take the pony and turn into a fishtail braid and confine the end with a clear elastic
Step 8: You can 1) roughen up the braid by gently pulling it apart by simply tugging on it side to side while spraying Joico Hair Shake OR 2) use
Joico K-Pak Protect and Shine Serum to smooth out the fishtail to add ample shine.
Step 9: After deciding how you want the texture to look, simply begin to twist the braid until it begins wrap itself around the foundation of the elastic then anchor it with several bobby pins.
Step 10: Lastly use Joico Flipturn hairspray to smooth out any fly aways and hold the look into place.
So easy we might even try it.
