How to create a beautiful pony braid

How to make a pony braid step 1: Wash hair

Wash hair

Use a shampoo and conditioner that will add bounce and volume without weighing it down. Use Dove Oxygen and Nourishment Shampoo and Dove Oxygen and Nourishment Conditioner to add natural volume to your hair. With regular use, your hair will also be smoother and more manageable.

How to make a pony braid step 2: Blow dry hair

Blow dry

To add a wavy texture, blow dry hair from mid-length to the tips using a thermal brush. Slowly twist the thermal brush while blow drying. 

How to make a pony braid step 3: Create a deep side part

Part on the side

Create a deep side part and put most of your hair on the opposite side. Maintain the waves that you created earlier. 

How to make a pony braid step 4: Make your first ponytail

Tie it

Take a section of hair near the ear and tie it. This will be your first ponytail. Secure this section with a clip.

How to make a pony braid: Make your second ponytail

Make the second ponytail

Get another section of hair beside the first ponytail and tie it. Then, take the first ponytail, split it in half, and slide the second ponytail through it. Clip the second ponytail that you slid, and tie the sections that you split in half in another ponytail.

Add more hair

Create your last ponytail by adding a big chunky section to the hair that you split before. Again, split your second ponytail in half and insert your last ponytail through it, just like what you did in Step No. 5.

Tug on your hair to add volume to your braids and spritz hairspray to avoid frizz. Spray TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray onto your hair to keep it frizz-free.

Add texture

Give your ponytail some texture by putting hair wax on your palms and scrunching it through your hair. Spritz a small amount of TONI&GUY High Definition Spray Wax onto your palms and apply it on your ponytail to keep it from looking drab and flat.
