Double-Frenchbacks into High Pony | Cute Ponytail Ideas

As an initial note, this is actually a 3rd-day hairstyle on my daughter…

On Day 1, she had used a high twisty bun, then removed it on Day 2 to leave subtle curls with a pullback on top, and this ponytail style what we used on Day 3…

My girls and I have been wearing this ponytail hairstyle for a few months now after seeing it on Pinterest. Just the other day, I uploaded a photo on Instagram of me wearing this ponytail when I was in LA a few weeks ago.  Our fans there loved it!

This easy pony hairstyle incorporates a pullback {pompadour} on top and French-braided sides that are brought up with the remaining hair into a high ponytail…

I then took a small strand of hair from the ponytail and wrapped it around the elastic band, for a cute hair-wrapped pontail.

  1. I love this website, its just my mom is still learning to do half this stuff, and we never have time, which really bugs me, but again I love all these hairstyles!!!!!

  2. I forgot how to french braid since I learned like 15 years ago so I am trying to learn again since I have a 3yr old and 5 yr old. I love this style because my 5 yr old is in gymnastics and just about to start basketball.
    She is 1/2 black and 1/2 white so her hair is very curly like ringlets but still very soft.
    I am a new huge fan of yours!!
    I would appreciate any ideas and posts you could give me for my daughters.
    My 3 yr old is also mixed but doesn’t have the curls my other one has so her hair is a little more manageable.

  3. I used this hairstyle and
    changed it and it looked awesome I love your website p.s. brookynandbailey’s YouTube account is awesome

  4. I’m 13 so I love this kind of stuff. My favourite is probably the one with the bun. I love trying new stuff with French braids.

  5. I totally love this hairdo! It looks super cute, but I don’t think I can make the mini French braids, because I am terrible at French braiding!

  6. I think it is so great when you can have a hairstyle that works for girls and women alike. I see this dressed down or up. The longer the hair, the better it might look!

  7. I Love this hairstyle works pefectly on my hair, even though I don’t have Bang. Thank Mindy, love this Website 🙂

  8. I love this hairstyle sooooo much!! Your website has helped me learn a lot of new hairstyles. I take ballet and i could definitely use this in a bun! Thank you soooo much
