Video Tutorial: Wrap-Around French Braid

In January 2009, I posted a hairdo described as Wrap-Around French Braid. (It would more appropriately be named a Wrap-Around Halfsie-French “Pop-Out” into a Side Pony, but we would lose people at halfsie!) A photo of the completed hairdo is seen here…

I have had a few readers ask for a video tutorial to show exactly how this hairdo is done. (Just like in French Braiding, sometimes it is better to see it done, rather than try and follow a picture tutorial.) Having just received my iFlip video camera back from a good friend, I decided to show you exactly how to create this beautiful hairdo…

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, 1 hair elastic, hairspray and accessory {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 3-5 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

Happy Hairdoing!

    When i do this i make the french braiding stop a little behind my ear so it isnt covered, and braid all the way down instead of a side pony tail…

    Hi, i love this hairstyle i used it but instead of doing a french braid i used one of the twists, with two parts, another idea is to use a fishtale baid into side ponytail. Hope that helped:)
    Thanks a bunch :)

  • Jennifer

    I absolutely loved trying this style on my little girl! She’s only two and it works perfectly to keep her hair in. Thanks so much for a new spin on braids!

  • Brittney

    Thank you so much for your website! I suck at doing hair, but thanks to your video was able to figure out how to my daughter’s hair cute (she’s 2). I braided her hair once, and it turned into a disaster. I will call it a success this time and will come back often for help.

  • Jessica

    Hi! I really love your videos. I try to do as many as your hairstyles as possible. Some of them I really love, but mu hair is thick and curly so sadly, I can’t do them all. I even made my own topsy tail tool after you posted the video on how to make one. I use it all the time for the “Twist-back Flip under.” Me and my friends all love your videos and at our sleepovers we style each others hair!It is so much fun! So i just wanted to say thank you, and to keep on doing what your doing because your an amazing hairdresser.

  • Jackie

    Hi, I love your tutorials! I don’t have a daughter so I do these styles on myself. The wrap around french braid is beautiful! I do it but I turn the ponytail into a messy bun to make it mature and grown up. Thanks so much for the excellent videos!

    I found this style on your website and did it on my daughter. She said she had so many compliments at school. It really wasn’t difficult and was VERY cute.

  • Violet

    Thank you, your tutorial helped me a lot. My girl loves the style.Thank you.

  • Emily

    Thanks a lot. I used to think my hair was impossible to use. It still hurts a lot but after ten years of living trying to style it your website helped a lot.
