Pull-Thru Ponytail

Pull-Thru Braids are very popular right now, and we have several pull-thru tutorials. This style, was inspired by my good friend Jill Ehat (http://www.instagram.com.jehat).

We really love how this pull-thru looks.  It can be dressed up or down. Brooklyn has worn this several times and has received lots of lovely comments while wearing it.

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 1 ponytail holder, 1 small hair elastic, dry wax and hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 3-5 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Step-By-Step Instructions

  1. Pick up a small section of hair in the front and top of the head.  Secure with a small elastic.
  2. Give the front a little tug to puff the hair a bit.
  3. Pull up sections from both sides, just under your first section, and secure with an elastic.
  4. Take the ponytail #1 & divide in two sections.  Pick up ponytail #2 and hold it up and out of the work area.  (Brooklyn held it for me)
  5. #1 should be in half and on either side of #2.  Pick up two new sections of hair on both sides, combine with sections from #1 and secure with an elastic.  (see video for more details)
  6. Split the hair from ponytail #2 and repeat the process.  Pick up #3, hold out of the way.  Pick up two new sections, add to hair from #2 and secure with an elastic.
  7. Hold #4 out of the way.  Scoop up remaining hair into ponytail & secure with heavy elastic.  (bigger section of hair needs sturdy elastic)
  8. Pull large (final ponytail) up and out of the way.  Pull the two sections from #4 down & under the big ponytail and secure with small elastic.
  9. Now you go back and really pull, puff and fluff your pull out sections.
  10. I added a little teasing to my final ponytail as well to get a nice full look.  Add hairspray if desired

This week on Brooklyn & Bailey… “Pie Face Challenge”  Mindy brings home a new game for the family.  Watch to see who gets a pie slapped in their face!
