  • -Hey, everyone.

  • I'm Mindy from Cute Girls Hairstyles.

  • Today I'm here with my daughter and we're

  • going to show you how to do a ladder braid on a side

  • ponytail.

  • So we're going to just go ahead and jump right into it.

  • We have swooped all of her hair over to the side she likes

  • to wear her ponytails on and I have reached underneath

  • and pulled just a little section of hair

  • right next to the nape of the neck

  • and that's what we're going to work with to begin with.

  • So I'm just going to use an elastic

  • to kind of keep this hair out of our way for the time being.

  • Now, when you are dealing with this section

  • you want to just divide it into three pieces

  • and go ahead and start a braid like you would

  • just a normal braid.

  • And now the only difference is when you get over

  • to this outside piece right here,

  • you're just going to pull off a little tiny sliver of hair

  • and leave it sitting to the side and then

  • continue the braid as usual.

  • And again, when you get to this outside piece,

  • leave a little tiny sliver of hair, set it to the side,

  • and continue the braid, and so on and so forth,

  • all the way down.

  • And it doesn't require a ton of hair.

  • In fact, if you take off too much hair,

  • you'll run out of hair so just a little sliver is all you need.

  • We're going to just go all the way down the hair strands.

  • This, what we're forming right now, is called a feather braid.

  • -Why is it called a feather braid?

  • -It's called a feather braid because when we are done,

  • I'll show you, but it sort of ends up looking like a feather.

  • It's pretty cool.

  • But there you go, you learned a second braid in this video.

  • OK, when you get to the ends just kind of

  • finish it off as a normal braid and secure it with an elastic.

  • And I will show you-- you can see

  • that we now have these pieces of hair hanging out the braid

  • and you can sort of see the shape of a feather in there.

  • That's why it's the feather braid.

  • OK, now the rest of their we're going to undo and let it just

  • fall.

  • And again, we're going to reach back behind,

  • and I'm actuallt-- this is kind of strange,

  • but I'm actually just going to have her hold it.

  • If you're doing it on your own hair,

  • then you can just stick in your teeth, too.

  • But by holding it up, it holds those pieces

  • so that they're falling down, which

  • make them a little easier for me to find.

  • So grab another piece of hair, about the same width

  • as the original one, and go ahead and start braiding it.

  • And we're going to just braid it like a normal braid.

  • We're going to get just a little ways down

  • and then we're going to reach back in here

  • and we're going to pick up that first strand of the feather,

  • that little sliver, and we're going

  • to add it into that middle piece of our braid.

  • So again, we're going to just reach and tug that

  • over and pull.

  • You can see him reaching, pulling it towards the middle,

  • and I'm just going to try to keep it

  • about an inch and a half, two inches wide.

  • Just kind of pull and kind of eyeball it.

  • Keep doing that.

  • And you can see why this is now looking like a ladder, which

  • is why we call it a ladder braid.

  • OK, and when you get to the end of that, again, take an elastic

  • and secure that side.

  • OK, now this would just look kind of funny

  • to leave your hair hanging like that,

  • so this next trick is how we finish it all off.

  • We take our fingers, reach in between that last little rungs

  • of the ladder, and just pull, very gently,

  • the remainder of your hair through that last little one.

  • Now, because I don't love the way

  • this looks with just the two elastics hanging there,

  • what I'm going to do is just remove them.

  • That one doesn't want to come out.

  • And secure it all together right here at the bottom.

  • And then just let it lay loose.

  • And what you have in the end is this fun ponytail

  • that has these little hair rungs that kind of criss-cross

  • and look like a ladder.

  • And they're very cool and it's really different and fun.

  • So I'll let you see.

  • You can see from the back it just looks like a side flipped

  • ponytail, and then when you turn around to the front, where that

  • lays over your shoulder, you get this really fun effect that's

  • very unusual and different and lots of people, I'm sure,

  • will comment on it.

  • So I hope you guys enjoy.
