Even if you don’t have uber long hair, you can still copy this style, just try adding a ponytail hair extension for more length before styling. David explains how to get the look:

1. Blow dry your hair and brush it into a very high and tight ponytail. Leave out a 2-inch section of your hair. Secure the ponytail with an elastic.

2. Braid the section of your hair not included in the ponytail. Secure the braid with a clear elastic.

3. Wrap your braid around the elastic of the high ponytail, and tuck the end of your braid underneath your ponytail. Secure with a few bobby pins.

4. Spray the braided part of your ponytail with a strong-hold hairspray. To add more texture to the actual pony, use a 2-inch curling iron, and finger comb curls once cool.
