Step-by-step instructions

  • Using a rat-tail comb, part hair into three sections and separate a small section at base of neck.

  • Part back of hair into two sections.
  • Use an antifrizz cream such as Redken Outshine 01 Anti-Frizz Polishing Milk to smooth bottom section of hair.
  • Blend extensions with natural hair using a boar bristle brush and gather into a low pony. Create a thick braid and secure with elastic.
  • Smooth top section of hair with argan oil hair gel like Eco Styler Moroccan Argan Oil Styling Gel and brush hair into a high pony.
  • Smooth top ponytail with antifrizz cream.
  • Take a small section from high pony and make a small braid.
