To get the look, Taylor says to “start by slicking your hair back into a ponytail, using a ponytail holder with no metal clasp to avoid breakage.” To get the sleekest pony possible, split your hair into two sections, slicking each back and then joining them at the crown.
“Then, separate the tail into three or more sections depending on your hair density and how many braids you want,” says Taylor. “The smaller the sections, the more braids you’ll have, and the larger the section, the less braids you have. Braid each section down and secure with a thin ponytail holder or elastic — which are better for your hair than rubber bands.” If you already have a whole head of braids, you can easily get the look by pulling your hair into a high pony.
The beauty of the braided ponytail is that there’s plenty of room to play and make it your own. Two larger braids will give you a sleeker, sporty look, while tons of tiny ones like Hadid’s give off a quirky vibe. Keep things streamlined, or add ribbons, clips, or colorful elastics for some extra punch.
