O1. Start with dry hair. It doesn’t have to be perfectly clean , in fact 2nd day hair does better than clean hair when it comes to this look. If your hair is on day 2, spray a little DRY SHAMPOO at the root before you start.
O2. Use a thick rubberband or something similar to gather all of your hair on the top of your head. Don’t worry about it being perfect, just make sure it won’t move.
O3. Take about 1/4 of the whole ponytail and drop it off to the side. Note: try taking this piece from the side, not all the way from the back that way the best/thickest part of the braid will show up in the front.
O4. Leave the 1/4 section out and create a regular ballerina bun on top using the other 3/4 of the ponytail. If you don’t know how to do a ballerina bun : http://www.polyvore.com/ballerina_bun/set?id=47578205&lid=1394767
O5. Once you’ve secured the bun, take the 1/4 section you left out and braid it. Fishtail, regular braid, whatever kind you want. Tie that off with a small clear elastic.
O6. Secure the braid using small bobbypins. You can put a bobby pin in every inch and a half to make sure it really stays put.
