How To Do A Braided Band Ponytail or Wrap around Ponytail

Ready to switch up your regular old ponytail? Try a Braided Band Ponytail!

This is a wrap around ponytail, where you wrap ponytail with hair...but with a braided band instead, for a prettier look!  The Braided Band Ponytail is a simple, yet beautiful way to dress up your ponytail. Not to mention, it hides the hair tie for an extra bonus!

Wondering how to do the wrap around ponytail, wrap hair around ponytail with bobby pins or how to use wrap bobby pins?

This Braided Band, or Wrapped Ponytail tutorial, will show you how, step by step!

Without further ado, here is how to do a Braided Band Ponytail!


1. Put your hair up into a traditional ponytail and tie off with a hair band

2. Section off some hair right underneath the hair tie, about 1 inch in diameter



3. Using that sectioned-off piece of hair, twist it into a simple, three-strand braid. You should end up with one ponytail and one mini braid.



4. Wrap the braid around the ponytail, and cover up the hair tie.


5. Continue wrapping the braid around the ponytail until you run out of braid



6. Take a bobby pin or two and secure it in place


And you're done!
