Braids are big — there’s no denying it. And and luckily for Us, Kendall Jenner’s longtime stylist Jen Atkin shared the step by step to getting the sleek and shiny braided look that the model rocked while out and about in NYC on Monday, October 23 to her Instagram Story.
Fear not, Stylish took notes for you on all the steps the stylist (who is also responsible for the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s blunt bob) spilled. And we are prepared to break it down so that you can have killer hair for your next night out.
Step one: the basis of this plaited ponytail is smooth shiny hair, so start by blow drying the hair with the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer with the styling concentrated nozzle attachment so that you can really seal the cuticle and smooth your hair (hello, shine!).

If your hair is bobbed like Kenny’s, Atkin suggests adding Beauty Works clip in extensions for added length and then iron the hair with the Hershesons Titanium Ionic Iron so that it blends together.

Then pull the hair back, secure it with a bungee hair tie. Pro tip: it is essential that you make sure your bungee is tight so that your braid stays put!
Last step: Braid — et voila! High-gloss hair that’s styled to perfection.
