In this tutorial by stylist Adam Reed, you can see how easy it is to turn a regular ponytail hairstyle into a chic and smooth plait:
Step 1. Tie clean dry hair into a low ponytail.
Step 2. Use a tail comb to divide the ponytail into three even sections.
Step 3. As you braid, spray your hands with the Fix Design Spray by Tecni.ART and smooth over hair.
Step 4. Secure the hair with an elastic, leaving around 4 inches of the ends free, and brush through.
Take it up a level
To take your braided ponytail from a day to a night look, it’s all about the tie. This season, bows and ribbons have been all over the catwalk. To give your braided ponytail a chic boost, for example, you could wrap a black velvet ribbon around the hair and leave the ends extra long so that they trail down your back.
