Diane Kruger Smuggled a Cornrow Inside Her Braid

By Wendy Rodewald-Sulz / July 8, 2014

The hairstyle Diane Kruger wore to the Season Two premiere of The Bridge last night isn’t your run of the mill messy braid. Nope, it’s hiding a secret…

A baby braid! Celebrity hair stylist Kylee Heath created the look for the actress by weaving a tight cornrow into the middle of a looser French braid. Here’s how she did it:
“First, I sprayed Leonor Greyl Spray Structure Naturelle from roots through ends and rough dried the hair, blowing it in all directions.”
“Then, I created a part from the top of left ear, straight over the head, to the top of the right ear.  I broke the section into two, creating a center part and clipped away both sections. Starting at the back of the center part, I then created two partings creating a triangle section in the back. 
The leftover hair on either side of the triangle was also then clipped away, leaving only the triangle section unclipped. I did an inside out French braid (cornrow) on the triangle section and secured at the base of the neck with a clear rubber band. 
“Next, I took down the clipped away sections. I gave the roots a light tease for volume, lightly pulled them back and created a loose French braid (over the top of the triangle sectioned cornrow).
“Braiding the hair until only about 2 1/2 in was left, I secured with a clear rubber band and lightly loosened up the braid. 
“I finished the look with Kevin Murphy Strong Hold Hairspray and Easy Rider."
