How to do a pull-through braid ponytail

When the weather turns warm, you may be looking for a way to get your hair up and off your shoulders. Ponytails are effective, but what if there was a way to elevate them to create a more sophisticated style? You're in luck. Pull-through braids are beautiful and simple.
The soft, fluffy style takes just minutes to do, but people will wonder how you did it by yourself. If you're ready to get started, watch the quick tutorial first. You'll learn where to place the elastics and how to make your braid full and fluffy.
- Alligator hair clip
- Several elastic hair bands
1. Begin at the top of your head. Gather a section of hair into a ponytail and secure it with an elastic, and pin it up top and out of the way.
2. Create a second ponytail directly beneath the first one.
3. Release the first ponytail from the clip. Divide it in half and lift the lower ponytail up between the two sections and secure it with the hair clip.
4. With the remaining loose sections, gather some more hair and create another ponytail. Secure with an elastic.
5. Repeat step 3 by releasing the pinned-up ponytail, dividing it in half and lifting up the lower ponytail.
6. Continue until you reach the bottom. You can bring the braid around your shoulder to make it easier to complete.
7. When you've finished the braid, gently pull apart the sections to provide some body and fullness.
