Put your hair in a ponytail like you normally would. Then take a small section of hair at the bottom of the ponytail and do a regular three strand braid. After that wrap the braid around the elastic. Finally secure with bobby pins and hairspray.
First step is to section out all of the hair from your ear forward on one side of your part, and clip everything else aside for later.
You can do one braid, two braid, or even three if your hair is thick enough. You can also do any type of braid – fishtail, regular, twist braid, whatever you want. Once your braids are complete, combine them with the remaining hair and put it in a ponytail as you normally would.
While your hair is still down, backcomb the top section of your hair. Then put your hair in a ponytail as you normally would, being careful not to flatten or mess up the top section. After your hair is secure, you can also pull up slightly on the top to add more body.
Section out the deep side of your bang area for later, and put everything else in a high ponytail. Then curl the ends of the ponytail slightly and backcomb it a little at the base for more body. Brush softly through the curls for a more retro look.
Shape your bangs into a swoop bang and either tuck them behind your ear or pin the hair beneath your ponytail.
First step is to flat iron your hair and apply smoothing serum for a more polished look. Then part your hair to one side. Backcomb slightly at the base of your bangs for more body. Loosely put your hair in a low ponytail in the back, making sure everything is soft and smooth.
First part your hair to one side. On the heavy side of your part, section out a 2-3 inch section that goes back to the middle of the top of your head. Then clip everything else aside for later.With your bang section, you can do a french braid or a twist. Once your braid/twist is complete, combine it with the rest of your hair and put it in a ponytail as you normally would.
First step is to backcomb your bang area. Then use your fingers to section out an area of your bangs however big you want your pompadour to be. After that loosely pin it back, being careful not to flatten it. Finally put your hair in a ponytail as you normally would.
Put all of your hair in a low, loose ponytail. Once the elastic is secure, loosen the ponytail base even more with your fingers by pulling the elastic outwards. Starting underneath, put two fingers up through the base of your ponytail, creating a small hole. Flip the ponytail upwards and pull it down through the hole with your fingers. Once it’s through, pull it tight and smooth out any bumps.
10. Braid up the back
First section out a section of hair that goes from ear to ear and down to the base of your neck. Then clip the top and sides aside for later. After that flip your head upside down, smooth the hair upwards and flat, and do a french braid up the back. Once the braid is complete, combine it with the rest of your hair and put it in a ponytail as you normally would.
