Kelly Peach x Rocky Barnes

To celebrate the start of the year's sultriest season, Oribe Hair Care threw a summer soiree on the rooftop of SIXTY Beverly Hills, one of L.A.'s hottest spots. Just before the coctail party and sit-down dining experience, Oribe Educator Kelly Peach styled fashion icon and influencer Rocky Barnes using Featherbalm Weightless Styler, a new addition to the Oribe collection. The entire process—from blow dry to accessory placement—was documented on both Kelly and Rocky's Instagram accounts. "Rocky normally prefers a soft, beach wave, but she wanted to try a more refined look," Kelly said. "We incorporated two small fishtail braids into the style to add an extra element of playfulness." 

Get the Look:

  1. Prep dry hair with Maximista Thickening Spray at the roots. 
  2. Add 2-3 pumps of Featherbalm Weightless Styler from mid-shafts to ends. Use a blow dryer to power dry the hair for a smooth, shiny finish. 
  3. Use a 1 1/4-inch curling iron and wrap sections of the hair in alternating directions to create a soft wave. 
  4. Apply Dry Texturizing Spray to the roots for added volume. 
  5. Use a tail comb to backcomb the roots and around the curvature of the head to begin the fishtail braids. 
  6. Take a one-inch section in the front of the hairline and braid a fishtail back to the center of the head. Secure braid with a clear elastic. Repeat this on the opposite side of the head. *If hair is thin, apply Dry Texturizing Spray to the braid for grip and control. 
  7. Add the Geometric Gold Plated Metal Barrette to secure the fishtail braids. 
  8. Finish with Free Styler Working Hairspray for a light hold that lasts all night.
