Freddy My Love’s perfect gym look

1

Part hair.

Section your dry hair into 3 by creating a 2-inch wide stripe from your forehead to the nape of your neck.

Secure the side sections with hairbands, this is will keep your hair out of your way while you braid.

2

Spray hairspray.

Give your hair a little grip and control for the perfect braid by spraying your tresses with the TRESemmé Extra Hold Hairspray.

3

Start your Dutch braid.

Now it’s time to begin your braid!

To create your Dutch braid, start by taking an inch worth of hair near your forehead. Divide it into 3 equal sections and cross the left strand underneath the middle strand. Then cross the right strand underneath the new middle strand.

4

Weave your braid.

Add hair to your left and right strands from underneath as you weave your Dutch braid. Continue to braid your hair until you reach the nape of your neck.

5

Secure your braid.

Once you’ve weaved your braid to the nape of your neck, secure it with a hairband. Then release both of your side sections of hair.

6

Gather your hair.

Once you’ve released your side sections of hair, gather all of your hair including the braid into a low ponytail.

7

Create a semi loop.

Secure your hair with a hairband, looping your hair through to create a perfectly undone look.

8

Final look.

Finally, finish off your look with another mist of TRESemmé Extra Hold Hairspray and fluff out the hair to make it look cute and casual.
