This look is easier to create than you may think. Use the steps below from Kevin Gatto, stylist and owner of Verde Salon in Collingswood, NJ, who says that if you take the braid out once your hair is dry, you’ll have a wavy ponytail.
Step 1: Work a leave-in conditioner or styling cream into hair and gather into a low ponytail on the side or in the back. Split the pony into two even sections and hold each half in one hand with your thumbs facing each other.
Step 2: With your forefinger, pull a quarter-inch wide section of hair from the outside of the left section and bring it to the right side, crossing in front and then weaving it under that section.
Step 3: Repeat step 2 on the right side and continue to work back and forth until you reach the bottom of the braid, and secure with an elastic.
