Accessorise with a headband; the advice of Toni&Guys’ international artistic director, Cos Sakkas! A master at translating a high-end look into something you can work for the salon client, Cos explains all:
Winning with the headband
1 Find the placement of the Alice band. It needs to sit diagonally back forward through the top of the head, then angle back behind the ears.
2 Take a section that is about 1.5” and secure.
3 Either side of the Alice band section take a half-mm section and create a scalp braid which will be the band’s outline.
4 Inside the scalp braid flatten and spray the hair and fit it in place with heat and hairspray to give it solidity and shine.
5 It’s important to leave a bit of scalp visible on the scalp braids so it looks like the Alice band is added rather than part of the hair.
6 At the front, create a classic roll through the fringe and create a vertical roll through the back.
