One of the highlights of Miami Swim was the MaraHoffman collection, which, "celebrates life and spirituality and the hair and make up reflects this ideal," says the press release from the show. "These are women who are not afraid to be strong and feminine all at once and can show their individuality."
For the hair, TRESemmé Stylist Elsa Canedo, the lead stylist for the show, created earthy fishtail braids to match the inspiration. The overall style is meant to have lots of texture and to look effortless without being too polished. See below for steps on how to recreate the look:
Step 1: Create a middle part and divide hair into sections
Step 2: Prep each section with TRESemmé Thermal Creations Curl Activator Spray, then curl using a 1" barrel curling iron and pin to the head
Step 3: Once all sections are completed, take out the pins and brush the curls with a paddle brush

Step 5: Flipping your head upright, divide hair into two sections down the middle of the head, and begin to create two French braids, starting at the top of the head to the base of the neck
Step 6: From the base of the neck, create two fishtails braids, and secure them with clear elastics, leaving some length on the ends loose
Step 7: Lightly rough up hair at the top of the head, pulling a few pieces loose with your fingers, and finish by lightly applying TRESemmé No-Frizz Secret Smoothing Créme in a backwards motion

Lips: The lips boasted next to nothing color using MUFE Glossy Full Couleur #10, a
