To say double French braids are having a bit of a moment is a *mahoosive* understatement. It’s the ONLY way to style your hair right now and, thank goodness, easy to do.

Get your fill of celeb inspo from the Kardashians, Hailey Baldwin and Zendaya, all of whom have recently been spotted rocking the look with effortless style – and we’ve become slightly obsessed.

Now that party season has kicked off, a casual but polished day-to-night hair style like this will come in pretty darn’ handy when you’re in need of a quick fix-up.

Not only do they stay intact and look fab for DAYS but they also survive wind and rain (important factors!) and are a stylish way to keep your hair outta the way when you’re at the gym. See the appeal?

Another reason to love the trend is that once styled, they take care of themselves and look best after they’ve been slept in. So make time to braid before bed so you can hit that snooze button, lap up those precious extra minutes in bed and wake up to hair that’s already done!

Here’s how to get the look and the products you’ll need..

 

1. Prep your hair to make braiding easier. Apply Schwarzkopf got2b Playful styling primer to lengths for grip and hold.

2. Divide your hair into two equal sections, then split each section into three. One at a time, braid down the back of your head and then tie off.

3. Sprinkle on Schwarzkopf got2b Powder’ful volumizing styling powder and use your fingers to dishevel. Pull out a few pieces of hair to frame the face and soften the look.

4. Seal the deal with a blast of Schwarzkopf got2b Glued blasting freeze spray to keep your double French braids in place and give them extra staying-power. And that’s it, job done!
