Step 1 Prep hair with mousse and rough dry.
Step 2 Create a centre-parting and divide hair into a halo section.
Step 3 Apply style dust to roots to add texture and lift.
Step 4 Clip coloured extensions to the front of each side of head and apply wax through mid-lengths to ends of hair.
Step 5 Take the two sections of hair from each side of the head, leaving the extensions loose, and twist the hair together to create two chunky braids.
Step 6 Once hair is all twisted, take the two coloured extensions and twist around both braids to create one braid. Secure in place at the ends with a rubber band and hold in place with hairspray. Toni & Guy Dubai, various locations including DIFC (04 330 3345).
