Erykah Badu's InStyle Spread Featuring Oribe Products

InStyle, September 2014
Hair by Chuck Amos


Neo-soul songstress Erykah Badu was featured in this year’s September issue of InStyle.Hairstylist Chuck Amos accented Badu’s white-on-white looks—outfitted by the likes of Helmut Lang, Givenchy, Gareth Pugh and more—with braids and beads. Amos filled us in on how he achieved Badu’s retro-cool hairstyle.

Get the Look:
1. Use Supershine Moisturizing Cream to braid the hair. 
2. Apply a small amount of Gel Sérum on the tips of the braids to pinch-twist and help seal the ends. This will also help with lacing the beads onto the braids.
3. After beading all of the braids, lightly spray the braids with Shine Light Reflecting Spray. Be sure to avoid spraying the beads.
