If you are looking for ways to highlight the shape of your face and accentuate your beauty, you’ve come to the right place.  A braided ponytail pulls the hair off your neck and face while a braid adds glamor to any hairstyle (especially if you add gemmed stones, tiny flowers, ribbons, and other embellishments to your braid). This makes the braided ponytail perfect for the office, a yoga class, or a date with someone special.

Braided ponytails are an up-do that is easy to-do, and when you get good at them they take less than 5 minutes and only 5 steps to create.
