HOW TO CREATE THIS BRAIDED PONYTAIL

THE BRAIDED PONY IS FOR ANYONE TRYING TO JAZZ UP A STANDARD PONY AND WANTING TO LOOK A LITTLE EXTRA!!! THE MAIN REASON WE LOVE A BRAIDED PONY IS IT WORKS WITH THE MAJORITY OF HAIR TEXTURES AND FACE SHAPE SINCE ITS ON THE SOFT AND ROMANTIC SIDE. TO CREATE THE RIGHT TEXTURE FOR THIS MESSY LOOK MAKE SURE TO USE A DRY TEXTURE SPRAY OR MOUSSE FOR THE PERFECT TEXTURE NO MATTER WHAT YOUR HAIR TEXTURE IS LIKE.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

*HAIR ELASTICS

* TEXTURE SPRAY

*FLEXIBLE HOLD HAIRSPRAY

*TAIL COMB

*CURLING IRON OR WAND

NOW THAT YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED, LET’S GET STARTED!

STEP 1:

START WITH CURLED HAIR. THEN DO A DUTCH BRAID (IT DOESN’T NEED TO BE A TIGHT ONE), YOU’LL WANT TO ADD HAIR FROM YOUR LEFT SIDE, AROUND YOUR FACE. CONTINUE THIS BRAID FROM THE FRONT OF YOUR FACE, ALL THE WAY TO THE NAPE OF YOUR NECK. THEN USE A HAIR ELASTIC TO SECURE THE BRAID IN PLACE!

STEP 2:

BEFORE WE START THE PONY, TAKE YOUR TEXTURE SPRAY ONTO YOUR BRAID TO CREATE MORE VOLUME AND GRIT. THEN, PULL YOUR BRAID APART TO MAKE YOUR BRAID LOOK SUPER FULL!

STEP 3:

NOW, GATHER YOUR HAIR UP INTO A PONY! LEAVE THE BRAID OUT FOR NOW. ONCE YOU’RE DONE GATHERING YOUR HAIR, SECURE WITH A HAIR ELASTIC.

STEP 4:

BEFORE ATTACHING THE BRAID, USE YOUR TAIL COMB TO TEASE THE TOP OF YOUR HAIR TO GIVE YOU THAT GORGEOUS, PERFECTLY MESSY “I WOKE UP LIKE THIS” LOOK! THEN PINCH AND PULL YOUR HAIR FORWARD TO REALLY FINISH UP THAT DISHEVELED, BUT STILL GORGEOUS LOOK!

STEP 5:

NOW TAKE YOUR BRAID, AND USE THE HAIR THAT’S OUT ON THE BOTTOM OF IT TO WRAP AROUND YOUR PONY TO HIDE THE HAIR ELASTIC. THIS WILL HELP EXTEND THE PONY OUTWARD TOO! ONCE YOU’RE DONE, SECURE THE HAIR IN PLACE WITH SOME BOBBY PINS.

STEP 6:

TEASE THE HAIR AT THE ROOT AREA OF YOUR PONY WITH YOUR TAIL COMB, AND THEN FINISH OFF THE LOOK WITH SOME FLEXIBLE HOLD HAIR SPRAY!

AND THAT COMPLETES THE LOOK! WHAT WE LOVE ABOUT THIS BRAIDED PONY IS THAT YOU CAN REALLY CUSTOMISE IT TO MAKE IT YOUR OWN, YOU CAN MAKE IT LOOK AS POLISHED OR MESSY AS YOU WANT!
