Dutch-Braided Summer Ponytail

Hello everyone and welcome back!

Today I’m going to show you how to do the dutch-braided summer ponytail. This ponytail is super versatile because you can wear it for everyday, for sports, or even for a more special occasion (I would recommend doing some wand curls though!). It’s also great because it works on almost any hair length since you basically just need to be able to get your hair into a low ponytail. Alright lets get started!

Items needed: 1 hair band, 2 small hair elastics, 2 bobby pins // time needed: 5-10 minutes // difficulty: easy-medium

1.) Start by parting your hair into a side part. You can do a middle part too, basically any part works for this.

2.) Pick up about a one inch section of hair and begin to do a dutch braid. Once you reach your ear, stop adding in strands and just continue braiding back. Secure with a small hair elastic.

3.) Repeat on the other side and then pancake both braids.

4.) Criss cross the braids over each other and then gather all your hair into a low ponytail. Secure with a hair band. Pick up a small strand of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the hair band and secure with one or two bobby pins as needed.

Let’s get to it!

Items needed: 2 hair ties, bobby pins

Time duration: 5-10 minutes

Difficulty: Easy

Step 1: Part hair to a side part. On the heavy side of the part, reach under and pick up a section of hair from near the ear.

 

Step 2: Divide the section of hair into two, and do a rope twist, basically just twisting the two sections of hair together, in an upwards direction all the way to the end.

 

Step 3: Once you reach the end, lift it up and sit it over the top of your head, like a headband.

 

Step 4: Secure with a couple bobby pins underneath the hair, and you can also put a few more bobby pin along the top to make it a bit more secure 😉

Step 5: You now have the rope twist as a headband, and if you wanted just a quick half-up, you could stop here. There are many varieties to this hairstyle. 😀 To keep going, gather all the hair into a low ponytail.

Step 6: Once again, you could just stop here. 🙂 Or continue onto the next step…..

Simply plait the ponytail into a French plait. Pancake if desired.
