It’s no secret that New York Fashion Week spawns some super stylish hair do’s for runway looks. But what you don’t know is that we have the skinny on how to replicate the sleek looks at your very own vanity. At South African designer David Tlale’s show, vixens sported a textured faux bob created by Motions’ celeb stylist Ursula Stephens. If you remember, Stephens has handled the tresses of Rihanna, Gabrielle Union, Kerry Washington and more.
Check out the step-by-step on how to replicate the look.

Starting with dry hair, create a defined center part and begin braiding at the hairline, carefully continuing a thin, definitive braid down the center-part using a “cornrow” technique until reaching the crown, and then using a standard 3-strand technique. Use Motions® Shine Enhancing Pomade on fingertips while braiding to smooth hair and provide a better grip
Next, section the top portion of hair in a horseshoe shape and secure with clips. Then tease the remaining hair in sections from root to ends to create some body and texture
Using a flat brush, gently smooth the surface of the teased hair and section into two halves, securing each with a clear elastic. Carefully roll each section under, securing tightly with pins and shaping the hair into a “faux bob”
Remove the horseshoe section of hair from clips and use a crimping iron to create texture, spraying the Motions Light Hold Working Spritz on each section. Once crimps are set, gently brush out and carefully lay hair over the faux bob foundation, tucking under with pins
Set the look with a bit of Motions Light Hold Working Spritz
