This year, the celebrity hair guru created three signature looks for the Open, all of which incorporate braids—and which he’s shared with us. (Great news for going from boot camp to brunch, right?)
“These styles were carefully crafted to provide a trendy on-court look that can be created in 10 minutes or less,” says Farel, “and braids are perfect for sports because it secures hair down and prevents flyaways.”

1. Part the front of the hair into three sections with the parts starting just above the arch of the brows.
2. Apply some gel to each section so it holds in place. (Farel likes to use his sculpting gel.)
3. French braid each section to meet in the back of the head and tie all three sections together with an elastic, while leaving the lower half of the hair down in the back.
4. Then group all of the hair together at the nape of the neck with an elastic. Finish with a gloss or hairspray to tame any flyaways.
