Trust us when we say, this hairstyle is as easy as pretty it looks. Here’s all you need to do.
Step 1: For this, start by combing your hair and dividing it into two sections.
Step 2: Then take the front section to make a half ponytail at the back of your head where you want the rose bun to rest.
Step 3: Now, make a simple three-strand braid with the hair in the half pony.
Step 4: Once done, twist the braid around the base of the ponytail and secure it with a pin, and that’s all. Pretty easy, huh?

Now, we understand that you might be giving us judgy eyes and calling us insane because the pull-through braid sure doesn’t look easy. But believe us, all you need is five minutes and the following steps to make it happen -
Step 1: Start by taking some hair from the front centre and tie it at the crown of your head with a hair tie. We suggest going for clear hair ties - it’ll make your braid look sharper and cleaner.
Step 2: To make sure your hair doesn't get in the way as you continue braiding, take the first ponytail out of the way and secure it at the top of your head with a claw clip.
Step 3: Now, take the hair beneath the first ponytail (above your ears), to make the second ponytail.
Step 4: Once the second ponytail is secured, it’s time to let down the first one.
Step 5: As you let the claw clip open, divide the first ponytail into two sections and bring the second one from the middle of the divided first ponytail and secure it at the top of your head with a claw clip, as you did for the first ponytail.
Step 6: Now take another section of your hair, beneath the second ponytail, and combine it with the sectioned first ponytail and secure it with a hair tie. Once done, follow the previous step till you get to the base of your neck and your pull-through braid is done!
Two French Braids for Long Hair
This is basically a fun and flattering version of the good ol’ French braid. This is all you gotta do -
Step 1: Part your hair from the middle and divide them in two sections on each side of your head.
Step 2: Start on either side. Pick a small section of your hair and divide it into three parts and start braiding your hair in the classic French braid style.
Step 3: Instead of going all the way down, braid till you reach the nape of your neck and secure your braid with a big scrunchie and let the rest of the hair fall free in a ponytail.
Step 4: Braid the other half of your hair in a similar fashion and you’re ready to roll!
Half Bubble Pony for Long Hair

Bubble ponytails have become a favourite for us this season and we’re digging this half bubble ponytail for long hair. Here’s how you can pull off this easy hairstyle when you’re in a hurry -
Step 1: Divide your hair in two halves and pull back your front section to make a half ponytail at the back of your head.
Step 2: Once secured, it’s time to make the first bubble. For this, add a hair tie to your tresses, probably around an inch or two below the half ponytail.
Step 3: Now, tug your hair sideways to give them around, bubble-like shape and also add volume.
Step 4: Continue making these hair bubbles till you have a few inches left to leave loose at the end.

Dutch braids are pretty, but for your beautiful, flowing mane, we suggest taking things to the next level with the double Dutch braid pony.
Step 1: Create a middle parting in your hair and divide it into two parts.
Step 2: Start from either side and divide your hair in three sections and start braiding it into a classic Dutch braid till you reach your nape and secure it with a clear hair tie. Repeat the same for the other side too.
Step 3: Once both your sides are braided, pull both the braids and tie them together around the back of your neck. Add a pretty scarf around the hair tie to amp up your braid.

Space buns are all over the place these days and we’re loving this hair trend. It’s easy to make and super cute on your hair, so try this out the next time you’re in a rush in the morning.
Step 1: Detangle your hair with a wide-tooth comb and create a middle parting.
Step 2: Instead of pulling all your hair back on the side of your head, like in a normal space bun hairstyle, just pull back half your hair and tie it in a ponytail on each side.
Step 3: Now, it’s time to make buns out of your ponytails. For this, twist your hair around the base of your ponytail and secure it with a pin. Repeat it on the other side too.
Step 4: Pull out a few hair wispies from the front of your hair and you’re good to go.

We’re all for lazy, pretty hairstyles, that’s why half top knot is our go-to hairstyles while we’re on the go.
Step 1: Just brush your hair to remove all the tangles and knots and then divide your hair in two sections.
Step 2: Pull back the front half of your hair at the back of your head and let the rest of your hair fall free on your back.
Step 3: With the pulled back hair, make a messy bun at the back of your head and secure it with a hair tie. Tug and pull the bun to make it appear messy and voluminous and that’s all.

Step 1: It’s pretty easy. Just comb your hair and sweep your hair to the side you want to make the braid on.
Step 2: Then, divide the front section of your hair on that side into three parts and make a simple three-strand braid in a backward direction.
Step 3: Once done, secure it up with a bobby pin and you can rush out.

Step 2: You can create beach waves in your hair too or let them just be.
Step 3: Now, just add some bedazzled, coloured or big hair pins to the other side of your hair and you’re ready to slay.

If you wish to pull back your short hair in style, then we suggest trying out the half inverted pony, especially on the busy days when you just don’t have time to be more experimental.
Step 1: Comb up your hair and divide it into two parts.
Step 2: For this easy hairstyle, start off by pulling back the front half of your hair in a ponytail.
Step 3: Then, split the hair at the back to pull the pony through it and that’s it. This creates an inverted twisted pony, which looks super cute, BTW.
