You might think of a ponytail as your workout companion and the perfect hairdo for the days you don’t care to style your hair, but let us tell you ponytails can do so much more and can be fancy as well. Case in point—this 60s inspired braided ponytail with a poufy beehive at the centre. It looks incredibly chic and is super manageable too. Get this look with these simple steps:
Step 1: Brush your hair and divide it horizontally into two parts from the crown.
Step 2: Take the section on the crown and backcomb it to create volume. Push the section a little towards the front and pin it nicely to create a bouffant.
Step 3: Create a side parting on the front section and French braid both close to the hairline, bringing it along the back of the head.
Step 4: Secure the braids right below the beehive and pull all your hair in a mid-high ponytail and add a hair tie.
Step 5: Wrap a hair strand from the ponytail around the hair tie and secure it with another bobby pin. Pull out some hair wisps from the front for face framing flicks.
