A French Braid With A Twist!
Last week on I posted a photo on Instagram & Snapchat of my braided ponytail. So many of you asked if I would do a tutorial, so, my wish is your command! Below is a little step-by-step on how to do this super easy ponytail, and at the bottom I attached the short Snapchat video I filmed last week. That way you can also see it in motion! I hope you enjoy this and that it’s helpful. Please let me know if you try it out, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Start off by brushing through your hair. I like to add a bit of wave to my hair with a curling iron, since my hair is so fine. That way it holds better. Next, spray your hair with dry shampoo. The dry shampoo helps the braid keep it’s look! Also, I feel like it’s much easier to braid my hair when it has some texture, and dry shampoo does the trick!
Grab a section of hair at the crown of your head. Make sure it is parallel to your part and ear!
Separate that section of hair into three pieces.
Drop the middle piece.
Take that dropped middle piece and grab hair from the front of your hairline.
Then braid it in like a normal French braid.
The thing to remember is to only take hair from the front of your hairline (around your face).
Just keep braiding, only grabbing hair from the front!
Stop braiding once you hit an inch or two behind your ear.
Take a bobbie pin and secure the braid. This is to keep the braid from sliding while you are putting your hair in a pony tail.
Now, use a clear rubber band and gather your hair into a pony tail!
Once your hair is in the pony tail, take out the bobbie pin.
Now, take the braid and pull at parts of it, giving it more of an undone look. I like to also pull out some hairs from the braid to frame my face as well.
Use ALL the hairspray!
You are now ready to go take a selfie!
P.S. Below is the Snapchat Story I did last week! Sometimes I feel like it helps to see it in motion!
