As we cheer on Team USA at this year’s Olympics we couldn’t help but notice a hairstyle highly used among female athletes: the braided pony tail. However, it has been prominently seen on beach volleyball players Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross. Learn from Julien Farel’s Aizhan how to achieve this look that’s also perfect for the summer days.
1. Brush through hair and then make a ponytail.
2. Take a piece of hair from the pony and wrap around rubber band to hide it securing it with a hairpin.
3. Braid the ponytail and secure it with a rubber band at end of tail. Hide the rubber band at end of braid with a piece of hair by wrapping around it.
4. For a sleek and shiny look apply Julien Farel’s ‘Flexible Gel’ all over top of head and comb through neatly.
