Braided Mini Ponytail Hairstyle Instructions!
Today’s video is a tutorial which was requested from an outfit post that I did a little while ago.
This style is a small overhead braid ending in a mini ponytail.
Basic knowledge of how to braid will be needed for this tutorial.
Grab a section of hair from the top of your head and pin out of the way.
Tie the rest of your hair out of the way so it doesn’t get caught up.
Pin your fringe too and then release the top section.
Take a small section from the top on one side and begin the braid.
Continue the braid all the way over to the other side of the head until you run out of hair.
Keep the sections fairly loose so they are a bit puffy.
You don’t want it to sit too flat on the head otherwise it will be too hard to see.
Tie it up into a ponytail.
unpin and brush out the rest of your hair.
In the outfit of the day video this is from, I wore it with a front quiff but it’s just as cute with it down.
I like to add a flower for a spring look.
You can also pull the braid out a bit more to make it even puffier.
I think braids like this work best with slightly unwashed hair or you can use some sea salt spray to give them texture and make them super puffy.
This style is very cute for summer or winter but I prefer it in the warmer months.
I hope this was a useful video. Please check out the blog post linked in the description for more information and a photo tutorial.
Thanks so much for watching!
