7 steps to creating your dream ponytail braid
Brush your hair.
Apply dry shampoo.
Tie your hair into a ponytail.
Then take a small section of hair from the bottom of your ponytail and wrap it around the base of your ponytail, to conceal the hair tie. Set in place using bobby pins.
Braid your ponytail.
Now cross the left section over the middle section, then cross the right section over the middle section. Continue to weave all the way to the end of your hair and secure with a clear hair elastic.
Pancake your braid.
If high ponytails aren’t your style or you’re looking for a more low-key way to rock a braided ponytail, why not try a low ponytail version instead? Just as stylish but less in-your-face, it’s a perfect way to tame your strands for work or uni.
