Undone Techniques


Embrace Undone Glamour Techniques with OSiS+ Soft Glam

Tousled beachy waves and festival braiding are the must-have styles to keep you looking on-trend this season. However, without the right techniques and products, your 'effortless' style may be more difficult to achieve than first thought. For those dreaming of the perfect laid-back waves, the results often look dry, dull and unnatural due to heavy styling products and the use of heated tools, whereas cool festival braids can end up lacking texture and grip, looking more neat and slick than fashionably 'imperfect'.

But fear not... thanks to the new hero products from OSiS+ Soft Glam, and the dedicated air-dry and latest braiding techniques, this is no longer the case!

We break down the must-have techniques you'll need to achieve the ultimate Undone Glamour looks.

Air-Dry Technique


The ideal alternative to heated tools, the Air-Dry Technique provides the perfect tousled base for any Undone style. Using the latest heroes from the OSiS+ Soft Glam range, scrunch, twist or braid the hair and leave to dry naturally for beautifully defined waves.

Braiding Techniques


Glamour and femininity are now being interpreted as less 'perfect' and more 'natural' – this is embodied in their year's popularity for tousled festival braids, proving that authenticity and understatement are the key to attention-grabbing styles. Before you master the key looks, why not get started with some basic braiding techniques...

    The simple one – if you've forgotten how easy it is, here´s a reminder...

    Firstly, separate three sections of hair. Start with the right section; pull it across the middle section so it becomes the new middle section. Then, take the left section, pull it across the middle section and continue by alternating. Simple!

    The French Braid is an all-time classic that never goes out of fashion.

    Get started by separating three sections. Take the right section and pull it across the middle section. Continue in the same way with the left section. So far, it's like the Classic Braiding technique.

    Now continue with the right section, but always add a small amount of hair to it before pulling it across the middle section. Repeat in the same way with the left section and continue by alternating. Keeping the sections tight to achieve a neat braiding result.

    This look is suitable for partial as well as full-head braiding.

    We'll reveal a secret... the fishtail braid always looks more complex than it actually is!

    The base of the fishtail consists of two simple sections. Start braiding by taking a small amount of hair from the outside of the left section and pull it across to the right section. Now, take a small amount of hair from the outside of the right section and pull it across to the left section. Continue by alternating this process and you will see the fishtail is no longer such a mystery!

    The Reverse French Braid (also called Dutch Braid) will really call on your newly acquired braiding skills, especially when working in tricky areas such as the nape... sometimes this needs teamwork!

    The technique starts simply with three sections of hair. However, instead of taking the right section and pulling it across the top of the middle section, as you would with a normal French Braid, you should pull it underneath. Repeat with the left section.

    Continue the process, alternating between right and left sections, adding a small amount of hair to the section each time, before pulling it underneath the middle section.

    Like the result? You're now a braiding pro!
