    Here's a tutorial:

    Part your hair directly down the middle so you have two sections of hair. Part two small sections at the front and braid them starting from the crown of your head – it should look like a two braided fringe. Now use hair ties to make two ponytails from those sections, add the braids to each section, and voilà!
