Ponytail + Side Braids

Fun side braids with ponytail

Details and texture are what make this once plain ponytail a lot more special. For this style you will need a comb, three ponytail holders and some smoothing cream. Comb out hair and section your hair off and create the braid on each side. In order for the braid to lay flat against your head you will need to braid your hair in the direction you want it to lay. Braid hair  up to where you want your ponytail to sit and secure each braid with a ponytail holder. Next, pull all your hair up to a ponytail and secure with an elastic. Use smoothing cream to tame any flyaways. You can really customize this style, if you want the braids to be a little wider, just slightly pull out sections of the braid to create a thicker braid. You can also create some volume at the crown of the head for a fuller looking hairstyle or simply pull your hair back into the ponytail.
