Thus far, 2020 has been a change agent with all of its happenings. As fall approaches, let’s get ready to step into this season being free and doing things for ourselves.

Grammy Award-winning singer and producer Alicia Keys teamed up with singer Khalid for her latest single “So Done” which emphasizes the importance of living your life on your own terms, the perfect anthem for today.

Celebrity hairstylist and & co-founder of Flawless by Gabrielle Union Larry Sims had the joy of creating Alicia Keys’s eclectic hairstyle in her music video for ‘So Done’.

Here is a step- by- step to recreate the look.

Step 1: Part hair diagonally at the nape of the neck and split the hair evenly down the middle horizontally.

Step 2: Make triangle shapes throughout the head, smooth sections of hair into small ponytails using the Flawless by Gabrielle Union Defining Curl Hair Creme

Step 3: Repeat on your entire head with making diagonal partings that will result in triangle sections for your mini ponytails.

Step 4: Start with the next section which is on the temple and goes through to the next line from the section at the back of the head.

Step 5: Next, grab a medium- sized section of your pre-stretched braiding hair & slide a small hair pin in the middle to split into two bundles of strands.

Step 6: Split the difference of your natural hair evenly and double strand twist your hair clockwise.

Step 7: After your whole head is twisted , dip the ends with freshly boiled water to soften and seal.

Last Step: Finish off the look by spraying Elnet Super Hold Hairspray on your twists for extra security and flawless finish.
