How to Get Feed in Braids Ponytail?
If you are taking help from a professional hairstylist, doing a feed in a braided ponytail would be easy. But what about if you are trying it at home? Well, you can try it at home too by following the steps we have shared here –
Step 1: Part Your Hair
In the feed-in braids and ponytail combo, you will have to make multiple braids. So, parting your hair is the first step. You need to part the hair equally. Well, there is no way to measure, but you can at least assume by checking the hair on the mirror. Try to keep them in equal thickness.
Step 2: Make Small Sections
Now you need to make small sections from the parts you have done in the first step. These small sections will be individual braids. So, how much hair will you keep for the small sections? Well, it should be at least 1.5-inch thick. That will give the braid a classic look.
Step 3: Make the Strands
Take a small section to create the strands for braids. To feed in a ponytail braid, you have to make three strands. Start distributing the hairs from the small section. Once again, you need to take an equal amount of hair for each strand so that it looks better.
Step 4: Feed in the Extension
In this step, start making the braids from the root of the hair. Once you start cornrowing the hair, you will need the extension. Add the hair extension with the original hair. Keep cornrowing the hair by adding the extension so that it looks like natural hair.
Step 5: Braid the Extension Carefully
Now you need to sync the hair extension with the braids. Do this carefully and attach the extension tightly with natural hair.
Step 6: Follow the Same Process for Other Sections
Finally, follow the same way for more braids all over your scalp. However, based on your chosen style, you can keep it fewer. Once all the braids are ready, get them together and tie the ponytail. Keep the ponytail high or low – it is all up to you.
