THE LOOK Smooth with a side braid HOW-TO Spritz wet hair with volumizing spray. Blow-dry with a round brush, then part dry hair on the side. Hold hair in a low ponytail (do not secure with elastic, though), and begin braiding, pulling hair to the front and secure with a small-size rubber band. INSIDER TRICK When braiding, avoid flat hair by not pulling hair too tightly. BUY ONLINE NOW Large, round boar bristle brush by Julien Farel, $50; www.julienfarel.com .
