This year’s winning contestant, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, Miss South Africa, sported an elegant and flawlessly braided bun created by Farouk Artist Julian Macias – learn how to recreate it:

STEP 1: Apply CHI 44 Iron Guard to dry hair, then using the new CHI Lava Flat Iron, take diagonal sections and create soft beach waves
STEP 2: Put hair into a high ponytail and use a doughnut shape hair filler. Pass ponytail through the center of the filler and secure with bobby pins
STEP 3: Cover up the filler using a CHI Backcomb Brush, secure with bobby pins and spray with Farouk Royal Treatment Ultimate Control Hairspray. You will have remaining hair at the midshaft and ends
STEP 4: Create a three-strands braid with the remaining hair and secure around the bun, pulling some strands off the braid to add texture
STEP 5: Spray Farouk Royal Treatment Rapid Shine all over for a glossy finish

With the CHI Lava Iron, Farouk Artists were able to create every look from bouncy curls to beach waves and sleek up-dos! Sourced from one of the most effective heat conducting materials found on earth, volcanic lava combined with the power of CHI ceramic creates smooth, sleek results without the damaging effects of high-heat styling!
