Get the Look: Olivia Palermo’s Dreamy Braid

By Wendy Rodewald-Sulz / May 8, 2015

 
If you’re looking for the perfect way to showcase your new summer-ready highlights, look no further: the gorgeous braid that Olivia Palermo wore to last night’s New York City Ballet’s 2015 Spring Gala is it. Hair stylist Lacy Redway created the look by weaving together two different braid styles in one long, luxurious plait.
 
"I prepped Olivia's hair with Big Sexy Hair Volumizing Gel all over the head to add volume and texture. I rough dried with my Amika blow dryer to make the hair a little easier to grip as I braid,” Redway explained.
 
“I then started off with a French braid (three strand) and once I got to the middle of the braid, I finished off with a four strand braid to add a little more pizzazz.”
 
She continued, “I tied off the end with an elastic and finished with Serge Normant Meta Luxe Hairspray to lock flyaways in place." 
 
Who’s feeling inspired right about now? And just like that, your weekend hair game is on point.
