To bring the evening to a close, we brought Lauren and Sharon together on stage to face the now legendary Coterie: In Session Challenge – this time creating a ‘big texture braids’ in just five minutes.
Lauren opted for big, multi-braids which started at the nape of the neck and were flat against the back, appearing almost as a braided pony with the individual braids slicked down together. At the top of the head, she kept things sleek and sophisticated with a slick side parting.
Meanwhile, Sharon decided to add some extra pieces for added volume and height in a braided up-do. Using the hair pieces, she created one big top braid, while using wire for manipulation when creating structure and height.

The Titanium Expression Deep Waver heats up quickly and has variable temperature control up to 210°C. The extra-large waving plates with a titanium-ceramic finish will leave hair glossy and full of volume.
“The Titanium Expression Deep Waver is my must-have tool. For the seventies-inspired look, I wanted to incorporate the model’s Afro texture with a bit of straightness as well. I like to use the Titanium Expression Deep Waver all the time when I have opportunity, because it keeps the hair’s natural texture while also putting shape in it. “
