Wait & Braid | Double Dutch Braids Into A Ponytail

This is the first time I've worn this hairstyle and I really love it. I usually wear my hair in a side parting but for this style it's parted in the middle. What I like about this style is that you can really make it bouffant if you wanted to glam it up a little. I love this style and it's motivated me to get back into experimenting with more hairstyles again.

I'm getting my hair dyed next week in preparation for my 18th birthday! I'm so excited and I really hope my hair starts looking more blonde! Looking at these pictures has made me realise how long my roots are! I'm still on a misson for long hair - long hair, don't care!

Do you like the double dutch braids into a ponytail?
Love Rachel, x

  10. Don't worry about your roots for the time being, I think it kind of adds to your edgy look! This style is so pretty by the way and almost ethereal :)

  21. This looks so nice! I love how thick the plaits look, even with only half your hair. I definitely could not do this to my hair! But my sister is quite good with plaits so I might make her try it haha :)
