Do you want your hair out of your face but are tired of the regular ponytail? Check out this easy ponytail braid!

  1. After washing and drying, gather your hair into a sleek ponytail. Tie with an elastic band and comb any stray hair into place.
  2. You can skip this step but if you want to hide the elastic, grab a section of your ponytail and wrap it around the hair tie. Secure under the ponytail with a bobby pin.
  3. For the braid, divide your ponytail into three equal sections. You can ask help from your friend if you're having a difficult time reaching your hair. Overlap the outer sections over the middle section alternately until you reach the end of your ponytail. Secure with another hair tie. You can opt to use either a black one (close to the color of your hair) or multi-colored ones.
