This fall, get the best of both worlds with the latest hair trend: the braided ponytail. It’s kind of like a regular ponytail, but it’s crossed with some braiding for a cooler look. There are lots of possibilities to make it happen and all you need is long hair and a hair tie. Ready to get started? Here are 11 braided ponytail tutorials to choose from:
1. Dutch Pony Tail
This relaxed, bohemian hairstyle from The Barefoot Blonde is a mixture of Dutch braiding and a ponytail, perfect for everyday wear.
