How To Do A Chic Braided Ponytail

This hairstyle is a favourite worn often by the elegant Blake Lively on the red carpet and off it. It’s no surprise as the braided ponytail is a versatile one that keeps you effortlessly chic no matter the occasion. Choose to wear it high or low, with a sleek tight braid or a voluminous one to achieve different styles. Also, one key tip is to prep the hair well to create some volume for a more flattering look. For a finishing touch, you can even add accessories to the look as well! Choose to go over the top with a big glittery barrette or laid-back chic with a simple pearl hair clip. The possibilities for this look are endless.
