  • Start about an inch above the ear and pull the hair into an elastic.
  • Find the center of the elastic, make a hole, and flip the hair in the elastic from the bottom up to the top.
  • Separate the ponytail into 3 even sections.
  • Begin on the right section and make a 3 strand braid.
  • Pancake the outside edge of the braid.
  • Repeat step 5 on the left side.
  • Fluff the middle section of the ponytail by backcombing the base slightly.
  • Secure all 3 sections of the ponytail together with an elastic.
  • Pull at the base of the ponytail to make it tighter and to accentuate the heart shape.
