FINISHED LOOK TOP BRAID PONYTAIL
Hair Prep: Start with second day curls, created from a 2 inch curling wand. Section off about 3 inches of hair at the top of your head, making sure to comb it over so there are no funny bumps when braiding.
Braid this section in to a dutch french braid, please let me know in the comments if your interested in a “Step by Step Braiding Tutorial.”About half way down, continue doing a normal three strand braid. Basically you want to stop adding hair to the braid for the ponytail.Secure the end of the braid with a small elastic, then add a light coat of hairspray to add some texture.Then start pulling the braid apart to your desired look, by using your fingers in a pinching motion.This step is optional, but I love how it helps achieve a fuller look!Next, comb all the hair back in to a low ponytail, to help make it look even more smooth add some hairspray to your brush.Then tightly secure the ponytail with a thicker elastic.
To help hide the elastic take about a one inch section of hair and wrap it around the ponytail elastic, then secure that hair with a bobby pin.Fix the ponytail around, I adjusted the braid a little bit so it feels fuller.
