A Boho Chic Braid Updo That Will Turn Heads

Braids have been around for years. They have also been a part of many cultures around the world. Owner, Billy Mercer of Lip Service XO stopped by and showed us how to incorporate three types of braids into a boho chic updo. First, Billy used a sea salt spray to texturize the models hair, and used a half inch curling wand to add volume and more texture. With the majority of the hair, Billy did a fishtail braid on the center back of the model’s head. Then on the left side he did a twist, and on the right side (the side with less hair strands) a normal braid. He then added fresh flowers to the crown (above the fishtail braid) and mixed all three braids together around the flowers creating a creative, effortless hairstyle.

Lip Service XO is located on Exposition Boulevard. You can find out more about their services or make an appointment by going to lipservicexo.com or call or text 512-636-4606.
