step by step braid stringed ponytail hairstyle

Step 1: Run a wide-tooth comb through your hair to remove any knots or tangles

Step 2: Divide your hair into two sections—front and back, with the help of a rat tail comb

Step 3: Make a ponytail with the back section of your hair and secure it with an elastic band

Step 4: Now, divide your front hair into two sections, and further subdivide those two. So, you have four strands in total to make a braid with

Step 5: Start braiding the first and third strand together and follow it up by braiding the second and fourth strand together. Continue braiding till you reach the end of your hair strands

Step 6: Pin up half the braid on the side of your head, just above the top of your ear

Step 7: Wrap the remaining braid around your ponytail for extra oomph. Or, simply let it hang with the rest of your ponytail. Finish off with some hair spray
