How To Recreate Rachel Zoe’s Braided Side Ponytail

I love, love the braided hairstyle Rachel Zoe wore last week for her Zoe Media Group launch event. So much so that I recreated it myself on Friday. Unfortunately I didn’t have anyone around to snap a picture of it, but I figured I’d share the steps I took to get the look anyway. Basically it’s two side French braids that come together to create a low side ponytail. Here’s how to get the look:

Step 1: Part your hair on the side then secure the side opposite your part with a hair elastic to keep it out of the way.

Step 2: You’ll start French braiding the side your part is on. Not sure how to French braid your own hair? Watch this hair braiding tutorial.

Step 3: French braid your hair from your temple down to the nape of your neck. Secure the end of the braid with a small clear elastic.

Step 4: Release the elastic that’s holding the hair opposite your part. Now it’s time to French braid that side. Start up at the top of your head and  braid it all the way down until it meets the end of your other braid.

Step 5: Take a second elastic and secure the end of the second braid to the first one.

Step 6: Take a one-inch section of hair and wrap it around the hair elastics. Secure the section under your ponytail with a bobby pin (or two).

Step 7: Add texture to your ponytail — if you choose — by wrapping two-inch sections of hair around a curling wand. Finish with hairspray for hold and to help ditch any flyaways.

Will you try this look? I think I’ll be wearing it again this week.
