Recreate Nicole Kidman's Billboard Music Awards braid with this easy-to-follow guide, courtesy of famed celebrity stylist David Babaii:
"I wanted to achieve a carefree long, soft bohemian braid for Nicole. To create, I started with clean hair followed by an application of Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment to the entire head. (The formula absorbs instantly and gives the hair a natural luster and shine.) Once distributed, I then parted the hair to the left and rough-dried.
Next, I used a one-inch curling iron on the bangs, continuously wrapping and releasing each strand — very quickly — then pulling on the ends to create more of a wave than a full curl. I also rotated the curling iron in multiple directions to add dimension.
I then took the hair to the right and created a long side braid. And, to finish, I applied an additional bit of the Pequi Oil Treatment from the part of the hair to mid-length to smooth and prevent flyaways."
