Here is everything we used when doing this hairstyle: The products below are all sold in our salon!
1. Wet Brush
4. Bobby Pins
6. T3 Wand
Braid How To:
Place the pony tail where you want the braid to fall, I placed mine low, but I also do it higher up as well! Higher up is a great option for a busy day or working out! Take the front pieces you want to be wispy out of the braid. I also put a slight wave in my front pieces using my T3 wand .
Pull Through Braid Instructions:
- Step 1 / Brush the hair straight back and divide off a section at the crown, tying it off with an elastic band.
- Step 2 / Clip this section out of the way.
- Step 3 / Pick up a new section of hair underneath the first and secure it with another elastic band.
- Step 4 / Let down the top ponytail and split it into two equal sections. Wrap the two sections around the second ponytail.
- Step 5 / Clip away the second ponytail.
- Step 6 / Divide off a new section of hair underneath the first two ponytails. Combine it with the split first ponytail and tie it all together with a third elastic band. This creates a new second ponytail and the original second ponytail now becomes the top ponytail.
- Step 7 / Let down the second ponytail and now we’re going to split it into two equal sections.
- Step 8 / Wrap the two sections from the first ponytail around the second ponytail.
- Step 9 / Clip up the second ponytail and combine the two split sections from the first ponytail with a new section.
- Step 10 / Let down the new first ponytail.
- Step 11 / Split the top ponytail into two sections, wrap them around the second ponytail and tie it off with a new elastic band.
- Step 12 / Continue splitting the top ponytail into two sections, wrapping them around the second ponytail and tying it off with a new elastic band. *When my braid is half way done I like to stop and put a little Unite Expanda Dust and Unite Texturize Spray on the whole braid to prepare for pulling out the pieces to create a big beautiful full braid!
- Step 13 / Continue creating loops until reaching the end of the hair.
- Step 14 / Starting at the top pull the braid apart. This makes the braid appear thicker more full. All the hair ties placed throughout the braid keep it “pulled apart” nicely! And thats it, your braid is complete! Once you get the steps down it honestly only takes about 5 minutes! Be sure to tag #aglaiagirl and #houseofaglaiasalon if you try this style!
