Hi, my loves! In this week’s hairstyle tutorial, I’m going to teach you how to do my favorite, Romantic Mohawk Braid Ponytail.
For this updo, the crown is French braided into a high voluminous ponytail before Pull-Through braiding the ends. Y’know those Day to Night hairstyles you see all over Pinterest? You can easily wear this cute hair style with jeans or a formal gown. You could also weave some white flowers around the braids to turn it into an elegant bridal updo.
How to create a Mohawk Braid Ponytail on Yourself, for medium to long hair lengths
Step 1: If you’re not using hair extensions, tease the crown slightly to create volume and be sure to hairspray it in place. Apply hair wax to tame your flyaways during the braiding process.
Step 2: Leave out a square section on your crown and put the rest into a high ponytail.
Step 3: French braid the crown section towards the ponytail and tie it with an elastic band. For beginners, French braiding is where you add in hair to the side strands before crossing the side strands OVER the middle strand. To make your braids pop more – meaning make them more obvious, try to take smaller sections so there will be more braids ( stitches) on your crown. My sections in the tutorial video were average size because I’m wearing my 220 gram hair extensions.
Step 4: Incorporate the braid with the ponytail and remove the elastic used on the braid.
Step 5: Pull-Through Braid the ponytail. I managed to forget how to make this braid in this video, so I did what I always do when I’m feeling stupid… kept going. I took a small section, and clipped it up. Took a small section below it and made a ponytail. Unclipped the first section, and divided in half, so I could pull the bottom ponytail through the middle. And then I clipped the pull-through ponytail.
Step 6: Repeat. Please watch the hair tutorial video below.
Step 7: Tug on the sides of the braids to make it bigger and more mohawk braid like.
