Braided Ponytail | Day 18





I know, this hairstyle is soooo simple.  But honestly that’s what I love about it!  This hairstyle is so much cuter than your regular ponytail and takes only a few extra minutes.  I think it’s an appropriate style for spring don’t you?!  I’ve had so many requests for quick buns and fast morning styles so I’ll try to get some in here before the challenge is over…  Say WHAAA?!  I swear it just started.  Can you believe we are 18 days in?!  Holy moly.  And seriously, the hashtag — you guuuuyyyss!!  I wish I had time to respond to all of your posts.  I will get to it sooner or later!  But seriously I’m so proud.  You guys are doing SUCH a great job at styling these hairstyles!  Even the hard ones you’re totally getting!  I’m always a little nervous that I haven’t taught it well and that no one will understand, but the proof is in the pudding.  I’m like a proud parent over here! haha!  Thanks for indulging me with the hashtag, I literally cannot get enough of it!  PS, it’s #thirtythirtyhair just FYI.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Gather the front section of hair
  2. Divide into three sections
  3. French braid until the back of your head
  4. Pull the rest of the hair up into a ponytail
  5. Optional: Wrap the ponytail with an accessory
  6. Spray the leftover curls or texture with hairspray or I love Redkin Wool

Today’s hairstyle is sponsored by Lock N’ Long Hair Extensions!  I’ve never used this hair before but the method is something totally new that I think will appeal to so many of you.  Instead of clip in extensions or expensive trips to the salon, these extensions are do it yourself installation and are semi permanent.  There’s a loop and pull method that seems easy enough and after about 15 minutes of looping your hair through the extensions, you’re ready to go!  These extensions will fit into your lifestyle and I love that while they’re semi-permanent, meaning they’ll stay in your hair for up to 6 weeks, they’re also do it yourself.  So many times I’ve wanted to get permanent extensions but I refuse to deal with the glue that’s damaging on my hair and the super steep prices at the salon.  Ta-Da!  Lock N’ Long.  This new innovative way to wear extensions is patent pending so there’s nothing else like it on the market!


If you’ve considered getting semi permanent extensions, definitely check out Lock N’ Long Hair Extensions.  It just may be the perfect fit for you.  It’s 100% remy human hair and will last 6-12 months so when it starts getting loose you can just re-tighten the hair on yourself with the refill kits.  Seems pretty low maintenance to me!  Lock N’ Long is offering a FORTY PERCENT discount with the coupon code 40TMP.  So yeah… you really can’t beat that!
