French Braid - Braided Ponytail (1)

I had a hard time trying to name this one, but it’s rather self-explanatory once you break down the style!  You can vary this according to your “skill” when it comes to braiding or twisting hair!

Step 1 – Part out crown

From the temples back to the crown of the head, part out the top section of hair.  If it helps, but the remaining hair hanging down in a clip to keep it out of the way for now.

 Step 2 – Make a braid

We opted for a French braid in this top crown section, but you could easily just make a normal 3 stranded braid, rope braid, or whatever you prefer.  If you opt for a French braid, only add hair from that top area you parted out.

 Step 3 – Complete braid

Once you’ve completed the French braid on top, braid the rest of the hair clear down to the tip of the hair.  Secure with a clear rubber band.

 Step 4 – Make a ponytail

Move the braid out of the way temporarily, and with all the rest of the hair, make a ponytail and secure with a rubber band.

 Step 5 – Add the braid

With a 2nd rubber band, secure the braid to the ponytail.

 Step 6 – Divide ponytail

Divide the ponytail in half, making the braided hair the middle section of the ponytail.

Step 7 – Braid the ponytail

Using the braided section as your middle strand, make a regular 3 strand braid incorporating the braid into the ponytail.  Braid down as far as you can and secure the end with another rubber band.
