Featured: POPSUGAR Beauty Braids with Sarah Potempa

Last August, I had the opportunity to model for a New Year’s POPSUGAR Beauty feature, in partnership with Sarah Potempa. Sarah is a celebrity hairstylist and creator of the Beachwaver. Aside from creating the popular beauty tool, which she used to style the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show models last month, Sarah is a braid guru. She completed a #365daysofbraids challenge for 2015. I’m still mastering a traditional French Braid, but I’d love to work my way up to these two styles. As my hair grows, I’ve been searching for ways to hold it in place while I train. Click the link to each of the styles below to find step-by-step directions. Chase of Athleisurely modeled three more braid styles!

Braided Bun — This look includes a twisted French Braid and a Wrap Up bun (another one of Sarah’s genius products). It would be perfect to wear from workout to errands or a meal with friends.

Dutch French Braided Mohawk — If we’re playing favorites, I’d have to pick this one. It made me feel like a badass! Sarah wet my hair for this look and created a Dutch French Braid (inside out) down the middle of my head. She braided that section in with two others down the back of my neck. This look stayed tight in my hair for the rest of the day after the shoot. It would be great to wear for a race!
