big night out

Baby, it may be cold outside…But that doesn’t mean you won’t be heating things up this weekend with a hot hairstyle! Sleek texture paired with a curvy French Braid frames the face beautifully on this look from the “You’re Golden” 2015 Big Night Out Collection from Paul Mitchell. Enlist a smoothing serum and a flat iron to create the silky texture that serves as the backdrop for the pretty plait. A  diagonal part, from which the French Braid begins, gives the plait direction and allows it to move across the crown until coming to rest along one side.
