Side Braid Ponytail (5 minutes)
First, create a French braid at one side of your hair. To make a nice side braid, simply divide a portion of your hair into three equal parts. Grab the left section with your left hand, the right section in your right hand and the middle section between any two fingers of your right hand. Cross the right section over the middle section, and then cross the right section over the new middle section. After one stitch, begin incorporating new hair pieces into the braid. Continue braiding and tighten the braid as you go. When you reach the end, secure the bottom of the braid with clear hair elastic. To make the braid look fuller, loosely pull on the edges. Together with the braid, gather all your hair into a high ponytail and secure it with a rubber band. If you want to hide the elastic, grab a small hair piece underneath your ponytail and wrap it around the rubber band. When you have covered the elastic, pin the end of the hair strand underneath your ponytail using a bobby pin. Apply hairspray all over your hairstyle and you are ready!
