♥ Hair brush
♥ Styling comb
♥ Hair band
♥ Bobby pins
Brush all of your hair through to ensure your hair is free from any knots and tangles I love popping in my Quad Weft hair extensions to make this super thick and on-trend. ♥
You will need to section off the top section of your hair like I’ve shown in my pics; to do this, take the tail end of your styling comb and create two straight lines either side so you are left with a section around 2 inches wide.
Take this section back to the crown of your head and section off with a hair band while we tend to the rest of the hair.
You should be left with most of your hair down and the top section secure in a hair band. You will need to take another hair band and secure the remaining hair so that you are able to concentrate on the top section without any pieces of hair interfering from the bottom section.
Now, we’re going back to the top section to create the punky ponytail; you are going to be french braiding this section right to the back to where this section ends. Start at the front by taking three equal sized sections and begin a simple three strand braid; you will then need to take a section from the left side and add it into the closest strand in the braid. Continue this with the right side too, alternating between the left and right side. Braid back to where your crown is and neatly secure in place with a hair band.
Now, for the bottom section, you’re going to need to brush all of the hair back gently and neatly into a ponytail, ensuring you get the end section of the braid into this too; then you can take out the hair band from the braid so it falls with the rest of your hair in the ponytail.
Once you have secured your hair into a ponytail, you need to take a small section from the underneath of your hair and wrap this around the base of your ponytail. This will hide your hair band and make the hairstyle look super sleek. Secure in place with a bobby pin, ensuring that the hair band is hidden and the ends are neatly tucked away.
Spritz with a little hairspray if necessary to keep your ‘do in place and ta-daaah, your Punky Pony is complete! <3
So what do you think of my punky ponytail girls? Do you fancy giving this a go yourself? If you do, pretty please pop some pics on Facebook so I can see.
