Step 6: Add Texture
Nestled somewhere between the intricate plaited headband and your greasy, haven't-showered-in-a-week topknot, you'll find the ever-faithful french braid — a wildly easy style that, much to the wider world's delight, works even better on second (or third)-day hair. When you merge that look with a tucked-under low ponytail? Oh, baby, there's a hairstyle that practically sells itself.
No, but really: this french-braid tuck (or, as celebrity hairstylist Sunnie Brook likes to call it, "the Frenchie") is ridiculously simple, even for people with little to no hairstyling skills. It's also a refreshing departure from most people's go-to styles: "If you're bored with your bun or your ponytail, this is an easy look you can re-create on yourself," she told POPSUGAR.
Don't just take our word for it. Ahead, Brook is breaking down the full step-by-step to this cute-as-hell french-braid ponytail — or, as we like to call it, your new favorite hairstyle to DIY at home.
