KRISTIN ESS HAIR  work hard in silence. let your success be your noise.

On a life-long #braidcation ยฎ. See ya bye. ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ

Basic b*tch hair? KNOT on my watch. 1๏ธโƒฃ air dry. 2๏ธโƒฃ grab a section from each side and shake a lil Kristin Ess Hair Loose Styling Powder on them. 3๏ธโƒฃ Tie a half knot and secure it with a bobbypin. (The styling powder has soft grit and keeps the pins from slipping!) 4๏ธโƒฃ repeat the same thing. Do it as many times as you want. I did it twice but you could go all the way down! Optional: finish it off with some hairspray. This could be a cute Coachella look for watching not Beyoncรฉ ๐Ÿคฐ๐Ÿฝโœจ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜ฅ #braidcation ยฎ

Came out to @korakia to get a good nights sleep AND to see how my products would hold up in desert weather. Turns out they hold up just fine. 1๏ธโƒฃ Curled this with a 1" barrel curling iron. 2๏ธโƒฃ Tapped the ends w a flat iron 3๏ธโƒฃ Applied Kristin Ess Hair Curl Defining Creme from roots to ends. I love it on both naturally curly/wavy hair AND on iron curled hair. ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒ™๐ŸŒบโœจโ˜€๏ธ #braidcation ยฎ

What is loose styling powder? Funny you should ask. ๐Ÿ™‹ (I get this question a lot!) Loose styling powder is a shakable powder that I use when I'm braiding or doing updos. It's got "soft grit" and light hold and that helps me pull my braids apart and make them bigger without worrying they're going to unravel. I also use it when I do updos/chignons/half up styles. It gives extra volume at the root (which saves me from tons of backcombing) and the grit keeps my bobbypins from slipping out. Go easy on this and go back for more as needed. ๐Ÿ–ค You can always watch a how-to on if you need a visual. BTW: this is @_emilym. She's been working w me for a little over 2 years and she's my most solid rock! ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป She's also the face/head of hair on the fixtures in Target stores because how could I not?? Stunning and loyal AF babe from Kansas? Uh...Yes please! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ’“ #braidcation

Warm it up Kris. I'm about to. ๐Ÿ–ค
