Can’t french braid? No worries! Celebrity hairstylist Riawna Capri has created a cool alternative to the french braid that will rule your next workout.

Riawna Capri has worked with many famous celebrities in Hollywood including Selena Gomez, Julianne Hough, Nina Dobrev, and Vanessa Hudgens. She is also known for creating cool hairstyles to rock any occasion. This look, shown in the video below, is called “The Circuit Braid.” Here, Riawna Capri has created yet another innovative hairstyle that takes your normal everyday headphone hair to the next level.



Watch the video above for a full, visual tutorial. If you need a simple refresher, a short summary is also provided below.


How-To Create “The Circuit Braid:”

Step 1: Pull back the top section into a ponytail. Braid that ponytail and secure with an elastic (tip: Bringing your hair forward to braid will make it much easier)

Step 2: Grab the next section of hair and join with first ponytail. Flip ponytail and braid that next section, securing with an elastic (tip: Lift up hair in front to give a nice shape to your face)

Step 3: Grab the remainder of hair and join with the rest into a final ponytail to bring it all together. Braid that last section and secure with an elastic.

Step 4: Texturize the braids by loosening them up with your fingers to give an effortless look


This look allows you to give the illusion of a french braid, while having your hair be strongly secured with a total of four elastic bands. It is less effort and creates the perfect gym look. Thanks Riawna Capri!
