Braiding hair

1. Make your braid

Take two small sections of hair from the top of your head and cross one over the other.

Braiding hair

Take a section of hair from one side of your head just below your first section.

Add it to the previous section on the opposite side of your hair.

Braiding hair

Repeat with a section on the other side of your head, adding that hair to the previous section on the other side.

Braiding hair

Continue braiding, alternating sides, until you reach the nape of your neck.

Then, gather all your remaining hair, with the tail of your braid, into a ponytail.

Wrapping ponytail

2. Wrap your ponytail

Take a small section of your ponytail and wrap it around the hair elastic.

Secure the end of the wrap in the hair elastic.

Pulling ponytail

Pull the tail of your ponytail to tighten the wrap.
