How To Make a Ponytail When Braiding

If you have medium to long length hair and are short on time but want to maintain a polished look, then you need to make a ponytail instead of trying another hairstyle which will probably go awry. There are numerous ways of braiding your hair and making a ponytail is the easiest among these styles.

Ponytails aren’t just for women, as men with long hair can also support a ponytail just for the sake of preventing their scalp from resembling a bird’s nest.

However, one thing which needs to be remembered by men and women with long hair is to keep their hair clean, you have to shampoo your hair to avoid that untidy look. Dirty hair are a turnoff for both sexes so if you are planning not to live your life in isolation, take care of your hair on a daily basis. The more you groom them the better an appearance you will have.

Things Required:

– Hair comb/hair brush
– Hair clips
– Hair elastic
