Many of you know, I haven’t met a braid I didn’t love. And with summer practically here, I’m already looking for new options on how to wear my bob as it grows out. I really love all of the big voluminous braids that have been trending the last few seasons and am always trying to figure out how to wear one even with my shorter strands. So when I learned about this great pull through half ponytail I was super excited. Max style for minimal effort. This is an amazing look for someone who doesn’t love braiding but still wants to look cool, and only takes a few minutes to complete.
