A ladder braid is a great hairstyle because it is simple to do but can fancy up a ponytail so you are set for prom, wedding, or any other occasion. The supplies are a hairbrush, a hairbinder, an edge tamer and hair spray. Make a ponytail and start a small braid just off center. Hold the strand that is on the right, let the middle one hang, and then reach under the pony tail and grab a strand of hair from the right side and bring it under and around the pony tail. This strand becomes your left braid strand. For the next step look here and finish the hairstyle. Be hot!
