X-presion's session catwalk tutorial demonstrates the use of an anti-skid thread unique to X-presion, developed by the company for session work. The hair is prepared and two three strand braids are created in a wave form on both sides. Thread is used to sew between the braids and over the head. The hair is then dressed long with left out ethereal veils through the side.  

The result is an elfin and mystical summer dressing.
