Poof, Braids, and into Ponytail

First off I made a triangle shaped poof in the front of her head.  This is going to be the line you use for the french braids. 
Make a thin french braid along the poof line along both sides as show below.  Secure the ends with elastics.
I then put the all the hair into a ponytail.  To finish it off I wrapped some of her hair around the ponytail.
