Style Magazine - - Contents - BY TENNIELLE COPSON, BEAUTY SPE­CIAL­IST

Bon­jour! Do your strug­gle to braid your own hair? What if you could cre­ate the il­lu­sion of a French braid with­out braid­ing? This pull-through braid does not re­quire any braid­ing skill at all — in fact, if you can cre­ate a pony­tail than you can mas­ter this hair­style and look mag­nifiqué.

STEP 1.

Start by mak­ing two small pony­tails on the side of your head close to your left ear, one un­der­neath the other. Se­cure these with elas­tic bands.

STEP 2.

Take the top pony­tail and di­vide it in half. Pull the bot­tom pony­tail up through the mid­dle of the two halves and pin it above with a hair clip.

STEP 3.

Add some of your loose hair from your hair­line to the right half of your bot­tom pony­tail and tie the two halves to­gether into a new pony­tail.

STEP 4.

Re­move the hair clip from the top se­cured pony­tail, di­vide it in half, and pull the lower pony­tail up through the two halves and se­cure with a hair clip.

STEP 5.

Re­peat step three by adding loose hair from the hair­line to the right half and tie to­gether to cre­ate a new pony­tail.

STEP 6.

Con­tinue this process un­til you reach your right ear. Then take the top pony­tail and se­cure it with an elas­tic band. Push your fin­ger through the pony­tail above the elas­tic tie, cre­at­ing a hole. Pull the bot­tom pony­tail through that hole, then tie that pony­tail with an elas­tic tie. Re­peat this process all the way down.

STEP 7.

Once com­pleted add more vol­ume to your braid by gently tug­ging at the outer sec­tion sec­tions of hair to loosen them and give the braid a fuller look.

STEP 8.

Take the end of your braid and tuck it un­der your right ear where the braid started. Se­cure along the braid with bobby pins.

STEP 9.

Fin­ish by mist­ing the en­tire hair­style with hair­spray.
