Products Used


  • close formula

    Spray hair with Biolage’s Frizz Control Styling Spray and brush through.

  • close formula

    Leave a small section of hair out to start the braid on one side. Place the rest of the hair into three small ponytails to help gain control of the braid.

  • close formula

    Take a portion of the left out hair and thread it over the first ponytail, under the middle ponytail and over the last ponytail. Then loop that same piece of hair around and under the last ponytail, over the middle ponytail and back under the first ponytail. 


    Stylist Tip: Use tension and push up each loop using your thumbs to keep the braid together.  

  • close formula

    Grab another piece of hair and add it to the traveling strand. Loop the hair over the first ponytail, under the middle and over the last ponytail. Remove the rubber bands as you gain control and continue this step until you reach your desired stopping point. 


    Note: Add hair from the left and right of the outer sections as your traveling strand gets shorter and finer.

    Once you get to the last section, secure it with a rubber band.

    Spray Design.Me’s Puff Me over the hair and lightly pull out for volume at the crown and at the looped section.
