Is there something better than the combo of double Dutch braids and a good-old ponytail? Sounds too complicated? Don’t worry; this tutorial will help you make it real. Just follow these steps.

  1. Part your hair a bit off center.
  2. Take a small section of hair from the left side, split it into three equal strands and start doing a Dutch braid.
  3. For the braid, cross the right strand under the center and the left strand under the center.
  4. Cross the right strand under the middle and pick a new section to incorporate it into the braid.
  5. Do the same with the left strand and go on bringing in new side sections.
  6. When your braid reaches the back of your head, and your hair from behind your ear is brought in, stop picking new sections and go on braiding the section a bit further.
  7. Create the second Dutch braid.
  8. When it’s done, tie all of your hair into a ponytail.
  9. Pull the edges of the braids to make them appear fuller.
  10. Hide the elastic underneath a piece of hair, wrapping it around the band and pinning it with some bobbies.
  11. Coat the style with hairspray.
