Hi. I'm Ming Chao, Senior Beauty Editor at Marie Claire Magazine. And today, I'm in West Hollywood, California at the Ken Paves Salon. Ken is a celebrity hairstylist. And today, he's gonna teach us what to do with Day-Old Blowout. These are things that you can do to revamp your style.

One thing that I really like to do that's amazing off those texture is braids. And what I'll do with that braided hair is just gonna loosely pull it to the side. You want it to look almost like with this texture, with a braid to look as well on that. It goes with the texture of the hair.


So, if the texture of the hair is a bit second day.


You want the braid to look a little bit limp into a [unknown]. So, if you have a lot of hair, you can use your own hair but you can start with your braided headband just over your hair like this. And we're working off with exactly what we've already started. Then, with a couple of hair pins because you want it to look effortless-

Just to hide the band a little bit.

Just to hide the band and really incorporate it into your look.


So, it really looks as if it's your own hair. I'm gonna do loose each wave direct from hair. Really easy and quick to do. The thing I love to do about this is, it is a really great way to get a lot of mileage on your hair. I'm gonna start with a 1-inch barrel curling iron. And there are no wrongs here. I'm gonna grab large sections like this and just wrap the hair loosely around the iron, holding the end out kind of straight.


Starting at the mid shaft out, hold your iron for about the count of 10. You see, as I pull this out, it's just a really natural texture.

No kidding.

And it's really beautiful.

What do we have next?

We're gonna do the 2nd day messy up do.


The messy up do is really is about texture. So, you can see what

I'm doing, I'm creating this amazing, away-from-the-face kind of look like twisting the hair just with my hands and styling the spritz on there as I go to create that kind of aerated texture. To give us a look of an up do, I'm gonna twist everything kind of upward in this direction.


Anything that falls out, let it fall out. You wanna create a little more texture. You can use a ponytail extension. Wrap it around. The Velcro will connect it in place. The thing I'd like to do at the end-


To make it really kind of personal, is pull out some of the length of hair on top and kind of incorporate them into the style.
