Pull Through Braid Tutorial
#1. Create your first pony tail
Take the top section of your hair, brush through and secure with a small hair tie.
#2. Create second pony tail
Grab another section of hair underneath the first pony tail and secure with another hair tie. You now have two pony tails sitting under each other.
#3. Divide first pony tail into two
So far so good. Just divide the top pony tail into two. These two sections of hair are going to fall on top of the second pony tail as shown in step #5.
#5. Grab the second pony tail and clip it away
As you can see, the first ponytail was divided into two and it fell on top of the second ponytail. Here I just grabbed the second ponytail and I am going to clip it away, on top of the head as show in step #6.
#6. Grab more hair from each side + the two divided sections and secure with a hair tie.
You need to clip the second pony tail away (we're not using it at this point) you can see this nicely positioned at the top of the head. Remember when we divided the first ponytail into two? Well, grab these two sections together. We are now going to add some more hair from each side and then secure with a hair tie.
