Braid into a Ponytail! Living Rich with Coupons! This is one of my favorite Ponytail styles! Here are the steps: Take a small portion from the front of your hair after you part it. You can french braid it or just do a regular braid. Whatever you have time for! Pull that braid back like you are putting your hair in a ponytail. Make a messy bun or a regular ponytail and it will look great! This is such a classic hairstyle that will always look good! Lauren Conrad wears this hairstyle a lot!
