Half French Braid Ponytail

This is a simple way to spice up any ponytail. 

That is all. 

Simple and stylish. 




Looks like a plain ponytail from one side. . .


But a cute ponytail from the other side! 




 Shirt: J. Crew
Earrings: Elisabeth Ashlie (no longer available)

  1. Thanks for sharing this Kate! I love this and will have to try it when my hair gets a bit longer. Right now it is a little past my collarbone. Also, I am trying to grow out my hair. So how often should I get a trim? Love your shirt, by the way!

  11. Very cute! I wish I wasn't so clumsy with my fingers. I have such a hard time with braids. I've gotten some practice on my daughter's hair, but doing mine own is a challenge.

  17. Sorry, not cute. It looks like you forgot to do the other side - like it's a badly done "milkmaid's braid" 'do...I think it would look a lot cooler if the braid was thinner - the thickness gives it that unfinished, assymetrical look. Concept is good, the application needs some work. But like your site.

    2. i disagree - it's not "rude" to not like something & give feedback. It was constructive criticism given in a decent way. I didn't like the style either - looked kind of old & haphazard, not edgy or hip. It's a blog ppl - give genuine feedback, not buttkissing.

  19. Very cute hair style. I've tried the twist pony tail you did last week and it was a major FAIL. This one maybe too complicated for me.
