Veil Style Braids into a Ponytail of Small Braids

 
Veil Style Braids into a Ponytail of Small Braids
 

 

 

How it’s done:

After washing, detangling and moisturizing; I parted out a circle, starting approximately 1 1/2 inches out from Ds hairline. I clipped the remaining hair in the center out of the way. And began parting squares and making ponytails all the way around using Bee Mine Curly Butter on each section. As always, I had previously soaked the rubber bands in extra virgin olive oil. Once I had all the ponytails done I split each one in two sections and braided them. When that was done I parted out a second circle and clipped the rest of the hair out of the way. The squares in this round are parted off center to the ones in the first round. I then started adding the braids to these squares in a veil style fashion. I continued doing this all the way around.

Once I finished that, I gathered the braids and remaining hair into a single ponytail and braided the hair that hadn’t been braided yet in small braids matching the other braids in size. And vio-la!

    such a cute style, I want to try it! I have a question:
    When that was done I parted out a second circle and clipped the rest of the hair out of the way. The squares in this round are parted off center to the ones in the first round. I then started adding the braids to these squares in a veil style fashion. I continued doing this all the way around.

    From the pictures I can see the circle in the middle from the 1st set of braiding in the front, where is the 2nd circle, is it inside the 1st one? Sorry also what is a veil style? Thanks for any help. I could do the blocks of squares and double braids through the whole head and then combine into 1 pony too.

      I parted out a circle, then did the first set of braids with the hair that was left out of the circle, then I parted out another circle, leaving hair out again for the 2nd set of braids. Does that make sense? See how the 2 braids from each square go into a different square and kind of make a v? That is what “veil” is. I hope that helps! I would love to see your photos when you try it :)
