Ribbon Wrapped Ponytail Hairstyle

A fancy ribbon hairstyle

You may remember the 2 strand ribbon wrapped braid from awhile back? We actually use this technique quite often because it's so cute, quick and unique. You can find one of our old favorites using the 2 strand version here: Quick Ribbon Wrapped Hairstyle. And recently my friend Becky over at Babes in Hairland did a variation of this braid which she calls the figure 8 braid using hair instead of ribbon which I thought was super cute as well.

Well, one day I was experimenting and decided to give it a try with 3 strands instead of 2 strands to see how it would turn out. We both thought it looked pretty cool, so I thought we would share.

Of course, you could actually use this technique with as many strands as you would like! Anyone brave enough to try 4, 5, or 6 strands? ;)

A funny side note: Right after we uploaded this hairstyle video to YouTube, I noticed one of the members of our facebook page (Ivana) had just uploaded a picture of this same braid! I thought it was pretty cool we were thinking of the same thing at the same time. What are the odds, right? (Especially considering how different this style is.) Btw, if you haven't looked through the photos that have been submitted to our page for awhile you should go check them out! You guys have submitted some great style ideas. And of course, feel free to add your own creations while you're there. I love to see what you guys come up with!
