Start to braid the front section of hair, adding hair into the middle strand from each side as you work down towards the ends. Secure with elastic.
step five: Wrap braid around pony and secure
Wrap the ends of the braid around the base of the ponytail to cover the elastic, then secure the braid in place using a pin.
