A chic faux braid for lazy girls

Who has time for braiding, anyways. (In our case it’s probably more about talent, or lack thereof.)

HOW TO – THE PULL THROUGH PONYTAIL

STEP 1
This look works equally well for both straight and curly hair. We wanted a really sleek look, so hair stylist Sainabou Chune straightened model Kiran’s lovely curls. 

STEP 2
Part your hair the way you like it. We chose a side parting, and pulled the hair into a low ponytail on the opposite side of the parting. Pick a hair tie that matches your hair colour. 

STEP 3
Divide the hair in two ABOVE the hair tie, and pull the tail through that gap. (See gif.) If you have thick hair, do it twice. This will create a braid-like look. To close up the gap, use two hair grips – one on each side – to keep the twisted parts tight together.
