Zipper Braids at the Barre

To Prep: You'll need a brush, a pony tail holder and basic french braiding skills. Optional: Two elastic headbands.

Step 1-2: Tip your head upside down and comb through your hair thoroughly. Since we're braiding, it's good to have every last knot out.

Step 3: Start a french braid at the nape of your neck. Because the braid loosens up a lot when you flip back up, you want it pretty tight. Continue french braiding until you get to the crown of your head.

Step 4: While holding the braid firmly in place, gather all the rest of your hair and pull up into a high topknot.

Step 5-6: Add an elastic headband or two for flair. I like to use two and space them apart.

Rock that zipper braid with a bun while you're tightening your core in your Physique 57 class. Your hair will be cute enough to wear out for coffee with girlfriends afterwards!
