Quick Hairstyles: Ponytail Half Braid

This is one of many fast and fun hairstyles that literally only needs a few minutes!

Items Needed: Comb, brush, water bottle, two rubber-bands, and hairspray.

Time Requirement: 3-5 minutes.

Skill Level: Easy

Step-By-Step Instructions:

1.  For this one, begin by parting hair on either side and comb hair into an off-side ponytail… Rubber band into place.

2.  Next, braid all the remaining hair. When you get to the end of the braid DO NOT add another rubber band.

3.  Instead, flip hair up (so hair is now in half). Now add another rubber band around all of the hair (in this picture you can see the two rubber bands because one is brown and one is black).

4.  You will essentially have two rubber bands on top of each other when you are done. Add a ribbon or bow for pizazz.

  1. This is super cute. I found that my daughters hair is too short for it though. I am going to suggest it to my step daughter though, she has super long hair!
