Gym hair tutorial: How to create a side braid pony with Lissy Roddy
Create your Dutch braid.
For this style we’ll be weaving a Dutch braid, so start by taking an inch worth of hair near your temple. Then begin to Dutch braid (crossing the 2 outside strands under – not over – the middle strand), picking up additional hair as you weave.
Continue this process until you reach the end of your hair. Secure your first side braid with a hairband.
Create your ponytail.
So, release the top section and gather all of your hair (including your lush braids) into a low ponytail and secure it with a hairband.
