Another easy hairstyle for curly hair is the braided ponytail. It is suitable for work or for a romantic date. It keeps your hair in place and while still flaunting your long, beautiful curls.
Take a section of hair
Take a section of hair on the top right section of your head and divide it into three parts.
Create a Dutch Braid
Create a Dutch braid by crossing the left section under the middle section, then cross the right section under the new middle section. Take hair from the sides as you go along.
Once your braid reaches eye-level, stop adding hair into the ponytail and just continue making a three-strand braid until you reach the tips.
Secure the braid
Keep the braid from unraveling by crisscrossing the bobby pins at the end of your braid.
Create a low ponytail
Tie the rest of your hair, together with your braid, into a low ponytail.
Take the bobby pins out
Gently remove the crisscrossed bobby pins from your hair so you don’t mess up your ponytail.
