French Braid Ponytail

French Braid Ponytail is the perfect way to pump up your pony.

I love wearing mohawk styled braids so this French braid is right up my alley. It starts high on the head so the ponytail sits at the perfect level.

It’s a great way to add a bit of interest to a regular ponytail, which I find myself wearing much too often recently, and love how this is still fancy enough for the office but perfect for the weekends too.

French Braid Ponytail:

  1. Begin by separating out a section of hair from the corners of the forehead and back towards the crown.
  2. Back comb the hair slightly to create a bit of volume.
  3. Divide the hair into three sections for the French Braid.
  4. Cross the side strands over the middle, left side then right side.
  5. Cross the left side over and bring in a section from the front of the face, adding it in.
  6. Cross the right side over, bringing in a section of hair, and adding it in.
  7. Continue braiding until it reaches ear level.
  8. Then bring the rest of the hair up into a ponytail.
  9. Tie it off with a clear elastic band.
  10. Smooth down any flyaways with hair spray.
  11. Take a small piece of hair from under the ponytail.
  12. Wrap it around the elastic band to hide it.
  13. Hold it in place by pinning the strand with a hair pin, pushing it up into the ponytail.

Then spin around for erryone to see! Love you girl! Thanks for being a part of these hair adventures with me!
