I love throwing my hair into a ponytail during the hot, summer heat. Tossing in two dutch braids is a super, simple way to make your everyday pony a little extra cute. This style works best on second or third day hair when it’s a little too dirty to wear down but not dirty enough to commit to a messy bun. Try it with wet hair after hopping out of the pool or dress it up for a fun night out with friends! Thanks so much for reading!

Step 2 / Pick up a section on the left side of the head and divide it into three smaller pieces for the dutch braid. Step 3 / First cross the right strand under the middle, then cross the left strand under the middle. Step 4 / Now cross the right strand under the middle, pick up a new section of hair and cross it under and into the middle. Step 5 / Then cross the left strand under the middle and bring a new section into the braid. Step 6 / Now repeat those steps continuing the dutch braid, adding in hair to both sides of the braid, working towards the back of the head. Step 7 / Once the braid reaches the back of the head and hair is brought in from behind the ear, stop adding new pieces into the braid and continue braiding the section a little further down before sliding a bobby pin over the bottom. Step 8 / Then repeat those exact same steps and create a second dutch braid with the hair on the right side of the head. Step 9 / When both braids are done, combine all of the hair together into a high ponytail and tie it off with a hair band. Step 10 / Go back over the braids, pulling on the edges just to make them a little fuller. Step 11 / Take a small section from the ponytail, wrap it around the hair band and secure it underneath with a bobby pin. Step 12 / Set the style with hairspray and smooth down any flyaways.
