This quilted pull-through ponytail is a variation of a style we posted last week (the multi strand pull through braid.) As mentioned in our video (below) the only difference between the 2 braids is the placement of the elastics, but as you can see.... the ponytails turn out completely different looking with this small change. (Comparison between the 2 braids below.)

We love the 3d effect of this style. If you try this braid, you will noticed the "quilted" pattern shows up along the front, sides, and back of the ponytail. So fun!
This braid can be stretched out to add more volume and dimension to the style, or you can leave it "as is" like we did, (which also turns out quite voluminous.) Of course, this pull through braid can be done in a high ponytail or low ponytail, as a side braid, or even as a half up hairstyle.
Supplies needed to recreate this braid:
- 1 medium size elastic or hair tie for the top of the ponytail.
- Several medium/small clear elastics (the amount will depend on your hair length.)
- Pomade, gel, or other product to help control flyaways.
