French pull-through braid
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Repeat step three by adding loose hair from the hairline to the right half and tie together to create a new ponytail.
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.
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.
Take the end of your braid and tuck it under your right ear where the braid started. Secure along the braid with bobby pins.
Finish by misting the entire hairstyle with hairspray.
