step two: Pull hair into ponytail, leaving front section of parting out
Pull your hair back into a ponytail, leaving a front panel of hair out from the parting down just behind the ear - this section will form the braid.
step three: Braid front section
Start to braid the front section of your parting, adding hair into the middle strand from each side as you work down towards the ends. Secure with elastic.
