Since the festive season is just around the corner, I am starting this series with a lot of hair tutorials and makeup looks. Durga Puja is just around the corner, which means we’ll get to explore the city a lot more. This season is full of fun and I end up spending almost 8-9 hours outside. Since the weather is still pretty humid, our hairstyle can affect our looks. But, you don’t have to resort to boring hairstyles this season.
I personally always prefer to don a half up-half down ponytail hairstyle. This time, I have come up with something exciting and this hairstyle will look apt even with your ethnic wear. So today, I am going to show you how you can create this twisted Chinese ladder braid easily. This hairstyle is perfect for summer and is apt for all hair lengths. So, let’s get started with the tutorial now.
First, brush your hair well and then comb the front section up. Then make a normal half-up ponytail and secure it with a black elastic.
After that take a thin section of hair from your ponytail. Wrap it around the ponytail from the back and hold it.
Again, take a section from the same side of your ponytail and combine the section with the previous strand. Hold it together.
Next, loop it behind the ponytail. Hold half of the loop in one hand and end section in another.
Now, take the end and wrap it around the ponytail and go through the loop. Tightly pull the section down.
Now, pick up another small section of hair from the same side and mix it with the previous section.
Repeat the steps ‘4’ and ‘5’ and continue the process until you see a small braid on the same side.
Once you are done with a few steps slightly push the braid to the other side. This step will help you create a twisted look.
You can do it till the end or you can stop once you notice a fuller, twisted braid around your ponytail. Secure the end with an elastic.
Set your braid perfectly and twist it a little. Also, tug the sections a bit to add more volume.
Finish with a hairspray, if needed. You can keep it simple like this. Or, make it a little dramatic and cute by adding a bow. I used a pompom bow that I love a lot. An accessory can just enhance the entire look perfectly.
Here is my complete look. I kept my front section very basic. I just tugged a small section of hair to give it a casual finish. This hairstyle is super easy to create and perfect for all occasions. It keeps hair away from your face yet looks so pretty from the back. I just love the sleek finish of this braid and the festive look of the bow. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
