The Charm of French Braid Ponytails
A French braid adds interest to a simple pony hairstyle. Since you can place your braids in different sections, vary their width, tightness and texture, it’s easy to come up with an individual style that will be all your own.
#1: Loosely Braided Style
For a day when some additional styling is desired but you’re not trying to go all-out, try a loose French braid that stops at the nape. Then put in a pony holder and you’re good to go. This look can work for anything informal or casual. To keep it carefree, don’t use products.
