We’ve got our eyes on updos for this summer season! Spice up the basic ponytail (or in this case, pigtails) for some pull through braids. This easy-to-do look can be completed in just a few simple steps:

Prep your hair by curling and adding texture spray for extra volume and thickness.

STEP 1:

Section your hair into two even parts.

STEP 2:

Working with one section, pull the top half of your hair into a high ponytail.

STEP 3:

Make a second ponytail that sits beneath your first.

STEP 4:

Split the top ponytail into two even sections and wrap around the bottom ponytail.

STEP 5:

Secure the two sections of the top ponytail beneath the bottom ponytail with a clear elastic.

STEP 6:

Repeat Steps 4 & 5 until you have reached the end of your hair.

STEP 7:

Repeat Steps 3-6 to the other section of hair.

Finish off the look by adding a silk wild rag, fashion hat, or other fun hair accessories.
