Double Braid Wrapped Ponytail Instructions:
- Step 1 / Brush through the hair to remove any tangles. Then separate off a small section of hair at the crown, about two inches back from the hairline. Twist the hair together towards the right side and lay it against the head.
- Step 2 / Slide bobby pins horizontally into the twist on the right and left side to secure it in place.
- Step 3 / Divide off two small sections of hair from the part down to the left and right ears. Bring the rest of the hair at the back into a ponytail tying it directly underneath the twisted portion.
- Step 4 / Braid the small section on the right side into a regular three strand braid.
- Step 5 / Wrap the braid over the hair band of the ponytail and continue wrapping until you reach the end. Then pin it down with a bobby pin, sliding the pin underneath the ponytail to hide it.
- Step 6 / Braid the section on the left side into another three strand braid.
- Step 7 / Wrap it over the ponytail, similar to the previous step, pinning down the end.
- Step 8 / Gently loosen the sides of the braid to make it more full. Spray the style with hairspray and curl the ends of the ponytail with a 1″ curling iron.
