Sam's Playlist - French Pull-Through Braid Ponytail

Braid shy?  No worries!  I want to share a very cool technique with you that presents the illusion of a braid without actually braiding!  If you can create ponytails you can create this beautiful look in about ten minutes using only a tail comb, elastics and dry clips, that’s it!  Check out the interaction I have with my guest - you will be amazed at the excitement in the salon as others take notice of your guest working with you to create this beautiful look!
