High Ponytail with a Center Braid
Donning Ariana Grande’s signature high ponytail takes off with a little trick from those rings for hair. She often steps out in the crowd during her live performances and concerts all dolled up with edgy hairstyles. But her center braid on a high ponytail has graced the pages of fashion magazines and even the web has gotten buzzed with this ring hype.
How to do it:
Prep your hair first. Brush it nicely towards the back of your head. Use your index fingers to section the strands at the crown of your head. Position each index finger an inch or two from the center of your forehead on either side. Run the fingers to the top of your head and separate this section. Brush the rest of the strands to the back and wrap an elastic band around them.
Plait the smaller section. Separate some strands at the front and section them into three. Create a Dutch braid from front to back up to where the section ends. Cross the strands under each other as you add more strands along the way. Wrap a band over the three strands and do not plait to the end of the strands. Fan out the strands for more volume.
Tilt your head forward and flip all strands to the front. This helps you to gather the strands at the back flawlessly to create a beautiful high ponytail. Gather the strands together with those from the braid and wrap a band around them at the top of your head. Tease the ponytail to get more volume.
Start to attach the rings. Open them up with your fingers and pass them through the strands of the Dutch Braid then close them. You can add up to ten rings, and the look is done. That’s it!
The Side Braid with Rings
It isn’t as complicated as you think it is. All you need is a few curls and the usual Dutch braid on one side. And to make your braid and curls more flattering, you can spruce it up with the hair rings.
How to do it:
Create a portion on your head whether it is on the left or right side. In this instance, you are going to let the part run all the way to the base of your head. You will be braiding the side with fewer strands. However, to make the Dutch braid fuller and thicker, you can add clip-ins or just fan them out.
Grab a portion of strands at the front and divide them into three pieces. Cross the strands beneath each other three times then proceed to add more strands as you plant them. Plait the hair all the way down and continue with the usual Dutch braid. Use a clear elastic band to wrap up the ends. You can start tweaking the strands so that you get a thicker and fuller look.
You can now add your rings in each weave. Do this until you reach the end. You can use as many rings as you want.
The Space Bun Braids
For that preppy and fun look, the Space Bun Braids is another way to show off those stylish hair rings. It has the features of an extraterrestrial stereotype that you often picture out in posters and movies. Hence, the name. This is a craft of two Dutch braids wrapped up to create buns.
How to do it:
Start by brushing your hair to the back to untangle the strands. Part a section at the top of your head. The size can be from temple to temple. The length is from the front to the center of your head. Divide it into two equal portions. These are the two portions for the braids and buns.
Do a Dutch braid on one section. Separate the hair at the front and divide it into three strands. Cross them under each other three times then start adding more strands as you plait to the back. Secure the strands with an elastic band and leave the rest of the strands hanging. Tug the braid along the length to add more volume. Use your hand to twist the remaining length and wrap it around to create a bun. Secure the bun with an elastic band.
Do the same thing to the other half and create another bun. Start to add your accessories to finish the look. You can just put the rings in just like the previous styles. Put five or more accessories on each side.
