Riley Keough’s inverted braid
When the Mad Max: Fury Road actress stepped out with loose tendrils and a messy plait, it gave her tailored look a modern edge. Here’s how to recreate it.
1 Give your hair grip Mist towel-dried hair from root to ends with a wave spray or mousse like  Moroccanoil Dry Texture Spray (R385). It adds “tons of texture,” says hairstylist Jen Atkin, who created Riley’s look for the American Honey premiere in Cannes, France. Then blow-dry while brushing hair in every direction – front, back, side to side – with a paddle brush to build volume.
Do a reverse (or inverted) plait Once your hair is dry, grab a 5cm section at the crown of your head and split it into three pieces. Start a reverse braid, crossing each piece under the other (instead of over). After three crosses, start adding to the side sections as you continue to cross the side sections under the middle section. This creates the inside-out effect. Continue to the ends (or, if your hair is chin-length or shorter, braid just to ear level) and tie. TRY  Clicks Essentials Mini Elastic Bands in Black (R15.95 for pack of 50) 3 Add more texture Gently loosen the braid with your fingers and pull out faceframing wisps to “give it a modern finish,” says Jen. Slide a few bobby pins into the top and middle sections of the braid to keep it in place, and hold with a spritz of hairspray. TRY  Davines Perfecting Hairspray (R385).
