By her own admission, Viola Pyak is obsessed with hair. Expert in hairstyles art, this Russian hairstylist specializes in braids and other hairstyles designs. According to her, the braid is the most popular form and most suited hairstyles for girls, as far as hairstyles of 2019 go.
Viola, who works at Elena Kyrgina Studio in Moscow, Russia, discloses her secrets of the perfect braid through three tips:
Braid tip #1: Prep your hair properly
Make your hair prepping clean with a soothing serum or spray before you start any braid. This will not only clean the hair strands for braiding but also control any frizz or fly-aways.
Braid tip #2: Straighten your hair
Before starting a braid, straighten your hair using a flat iron to get rid of frizz and to give some shine to the strands.
Braid tip #3: Use oil or mousse while braiding
Use hair oil or mousse when separating the strands for braiding. This way the hair strands remain elastic and easy to work with. Use a finishing spray to keep the braid in place.
