Similar to the Basic Braid, this braid will produce the best results when you pull hair back into a tight ponytail first. The difference between the two braids is that you are going to separate the ponytail into 2 strands instead of three.
Once you have separated the ponytail, you are going to start out by holding the 2 strands in your left hand.
Now you are going to take a thin piece from the outside of the right strand and join it with the left strand.
Reverse how you are holding hair and switch hands.
With your left hand take a thin piece from the outside of the left strand and join it with the right strand.
You are going to repeat steps 2 and 3 until the braid is as long as you desire. Then finish with an elastic.
