Spice up your ponytail using the dutch braid technique. This is my favorite hairstyle when I hit the gym and music concert. Optional Preparation: Applying heat protectant spray and curl your hair using a flat iron. This gives you hair more volume and bounce. In addition, it's easier to braid wavy hair. Steps: 1. With a middle part, take one side and begin doing a dutch braid incorporating all the hair from the crown forward. Repeat that on other side. 2. Mist hairspray on the braid to set it in place and then begin to pull each piece out making the braid look fuller and bigger. Do this on the entire length of the braid and repeat on other side. 3. Grab the braids and remaining hair and tie all of it into a ponytail and then take a small section of hair and wrap around the ponytail to hide any elastics. 4. Once you have done that, you can finish off by misting a anti-frizz shine spray for added shine and voila! You are done!
