Box Braids Hairstyling Ideas| The Pompadour Ponytail

Hey chicas!

As you dolls know from my

previous CurlGoneCosmo post

; my class took a mini field trip to a salon/ day spa! We were required to dress up to par with our makeup done and hair/outfit as if we were going to work in a salon for the day. If only we could wear different colors this day, we were still required to dress in uniform which is pretty much all black, tops must include sleeves. 

I decided to play around with a few hairstyles for the day since I am currently in a protective style. Updo's can pretty much change any hairstyle from street wear to classic!

This classic pompadour ponytail has been featured on many red carpet events from straight hair to weave extensions, so its only right that I show you dolls how easy it is to achieve this same sleek look on box braids!

The only materials you will need for this tutorial are a

spray bottle mixture



of your choice to replenish moisture and sheen to your braids. This is definitely essential for those of you in extremely humid climates!

The last two items are bobby pins and elastic hair bands of your choice!

The amount of styles that you can achieve with box braids are totally endless! Its up to you to let your creative juices flow and step out of the box.
