How to: Hermes soft side twist

Start by prepping your hair with some heat protecting product on damp hair. This will prevent it from becoming damaged when you are styling it. For the Hermes show Redken Pillow Proof Blowdry Express Primer was used.
For shiny hair and easier styling, apply some blow dry lotion like Redken Satinwear 02 all over your hair.
Blow-dry your hair straight using a round brush. The key to this look is to keep it smooth, soft and sophisticated – so ensure you get a natural-looking, straight finish.

Next, create a clean side part on the left.
Twist the front section of your hair and secure it behind your right ear using a pin. This look is soft and elegant which is why there is no need for any hairspray.
