Today’s hair tutorial is a beautiful and easy braided ponytail hairstyle that we have been seeing all over Instagram recently. We fell in love with it when we first saw it and have had a few requests for a tutorial, so we knew we wanted to do a video on this style!
This ponytail is so pretty and unique looking and the best part is that it is much easier to make than it looks. If you want to cut down on some time, you could use regular 3 strand braids or twist braids instead of fishtail braids (as they are so gorgeous, but a little more time consuming.)

This ponytail style would be great for casual occasions as well as formal events. For a more polished look, hair could be wrapped around the top of the ponytail before you start braiding.
Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
- 1 medium size hair tie for the top of the ponytail.
- Several medium/small hair elastics. The amount will depend on the length of hair you are working with and how many loops or links you will be making in the chain braid.
- Hair spray, wax, gel, or other product to help with flyaways.
This hairstyle will work best with long to medium length hair. You could also create this style using a half ponytail if you desire.
