This hairstyle is perfect for special occasions and even bridal hair if you want! It’s ridiculously easy to recreate, but it still looks very intricate and elegant. Without further ado, here is our easy pull through braid tutorial!
Step 1 – Apply a set of Velo Extensions
This step is semi-optional. If you’re already happy with your hair’s length and fullness, you can skip it. But if your natural hair is short and fine like this model’s, Velo Extensions are a must to achieve this look.
Step 2 – Tease the hair
With a teasing brush, tease hair around the crown in order to boost volume for the style.
Step 3 – Brush with a Paddle Brush
It’s very important to use our Mixed Bristle Paddle Brush for this step! It’s specially designed to detangle both your natural hair and extensions in order to create a seamless blend. It’s great regardless of whether or not you’re wearing extensions, though!
Step 4 – Create small half ponytail and flip it
Leaving some face-framing pieces in front, make a tiny half ponytail (as pictured) and flip it inward.
Step 5 – Repeat step 4 several times
Continue pulling small pieces toward the back and flipping them inward, layering them up and creating a braid effect.
Step 6 – Stop about halfway down and adjust
Once you reach the desired stopping point, finish the last half ponytail and gently pull on some pieces to widen and texturize the pull through braid.
Step 7 – Set with hairspray
Lightly spritz some Ostia Collection Flexible Hairspray to hold the style in place.
Step 8 – Use comb to add texture
Using a rat tail comb, comb upward at the ends to add some texture to the remaining hair.
Last but not least, enjoy your gorgeous pull through braid! Yes, this tutorial really is that easy. For more hairstyle ideas and tutorials, check out the rest of our blog.
