We've never met a braid we didn't like, and when we saw pumped-up French braids on the spring 2015 runways, we were obsessed. The voluminous pompadour, the badass triple weave — this is not your mother's braid, people. Of course, we're not ones to just pin the hairstyle onto our inspiration boards and call it a day. We wanted a step-by-step breakdown to get the look ourselves. Don't worry, we're showing you, too.
Watch above as our model demonstrates how to get this runway-ready style with just a few steps and some Pantene products to help maintain the health — and style — of her strands. Trust us — you'll want to wear this look now and well past spring.
