Section off the front section from ear to ear across the crown area and clip back for later.
Flip your head upside down and start a normal French braid technique by taking a small section of hair at the nape of your neck and dividing it into three equal sections. See French braid for details.
Start to connect hair from the sides as you work from the nape to your crown area. Secure the base of your braid to the scalp with a hair elastic.
Drop the hair out of your clipped-back section, add it to your hair outside the braided pony and secure with a hair elastic.
Wrap all the hair around the pony to make a bun and secure with bobby pins. Finish off this look with a lightweight hairspray.
