the Pull Thru Half Up


I’m about a year late on the pull-thru trend, but now that my hair is long enough to really play around with, I’ve been enjoying trying out new “faux” braiding styles! Did you catch this pretty ponytail from a few weeks ago? Anyway, it looks complicated, but it’s just the same few steps repeated over and over until you reach the ends! This would be a great hairstyle for traveling or skiing, or doing anything active in which you don’t want to worry about your hair! It likely won’t move a bit with all the elastics!

You will need quite a few elastics for this hairstyle, so go ahead and get some here!

Show me your versions if your triceps aren’t too sore to take a selfie! Use #smallthingshair on Instagram so I can see it!

    Really pretty, Kate! I love it. Just added ‘clear elastics’ to my shopping list – can’t wait to try.

    My right arm is really weak. I have MS even brushing combing is too hard. I did an Elsa look with my granaughtier. Quitell nice. But trying to do above my head. Impossible. Love this will watch and give my husband some pointers…… no website.

    This is quite lovely! My hair is fine and thin, and even with a bunch of texture spray, doing the braid leaves too little hair down to actually allow it to be a half up style. So I did the pull through braid and then finished with a messy bun! Super cute! Can’t wait for summer to try and finish it off with a fishtail or regular 3 strand braid!

    I never thought about doing this as a half up look! I have tried several times doing the pull through with all of my hair and it was a little challenging with my thin hair, but this will probably work much better!
