A step-by-step unicorn braid tutorial
Prep your hair.
Part your hair.
Create your unicorn braid.
Continue this braiding process, remembering to pick up additional hair as you weave, incorporating it to your left and right sections. Once you reach your crown, use a clear hair tie to secure your plait in place.
Tip: If your braid is looking a little flat, try pancaking it to make it appear fuller and thicker!
Create a ponytail.
After securing your pony with a hairband, take an inch wide section of hair and wrap it around your hairband to conceal it. This will help make your pony look more sleek and refined!
Apply leave-in cream.
This will help to create a protective barrier against any heat damage that may occur.
Curl your ponytail.
