    Section hair into a really heavy side part all the way down to the ear. Clip the heavy parted section to keep out of the hair. Tease the crown of the back section. Gather the hair to create a low ponytail on the opposite side of the heavy parting, using a small dab of Joico Super Shine Glossing Polish to give the ponytail some grip while you smooth it down, and tie it with a clear elastic band.

    Take the heavy side part that was clipped out of the way and create a Dutch braid. The center section of the braid get crossed over to the outside, alternating (opposite of a French braid). Secure the Dutch braid with a clear elastic, and wrap it around the ponytail. Fasten the loose end with a bobby pin underneath.

    Add texture to the ponytail by “raking”/backcombing the hair with your fingers. Spray the ponytail with some Joico Texture Boost Dry Spray Wax for added texture. Mist the finished hairstyle with Joico Humidity Blocker to keep frizz away.
