Jessica Alba sported a braided ponytail at the 2012 Environmental Media Awards.
Step 1: Start with a deep side part.
Step 2: Separate hair into two sections with one starting down the side part and diagonally moving down to behind the other ear.
Step 3: Starting with the thinner section, French braid down the side and moving down the back of the head. Instead of braiding down the remaining hair, leave loose so you can gather in the ponytail.
Step 4: Gather all of the hair into a tight ponytail.
Step 5: Use a strand from the pony and wrap around the hair to hide the elastic.
