|New York Fashion Week Hair Stylist Secret: Mess It Up|
Best Hair Product for the Job: Ted Gibson Fix it Gel
Designer Lela Rose wanted a "light and airy" look for her show, so hair stylist Ted Gibson created this totally unfussy side braid. First the hair stylist raked a quarter-sized dollop of Ted Gibson Fix It Gel through dry hair from roots to tips for hold and texture. Then, with his hands, Ted Gibson quickly swept strands to one side and loosely plaited the length of the models' hair, securing the ends with an elastic band. Then, he went back and pulled the braid apart to make it look even more undone. "These aren't your perfect schoolgirl braids," said Ted Gibson.
