  1. To recreate Lupita's look, Vernon prepped her hair with the Leave-In Conditioner to provide hydration and protection.
  2. Next, he sprayed the Scalp Nourish~Ment Braids and Locs Spray on to Lupita's roots to soothe her scalp.
  3. Vernon then used his hands as the primary tool. That's right… no heat or tools were used to create this style!
  4. Vernon contoured and sculpted Lupita's hair into a side quiff and finished by using U-Pins to secure her look.
