We CAN do a full pony but it's really sad looking, so we don't. So half pony.
I pushed some hair to each side and found the longest pieces (the middle ones) to braid. Pomade.
Then braided and tucked two on top and two on bottom.
Then I undid the side pieces I was keeping. Since they were short I thought they'd work best for the regular hair parts instead of trying to braid them. So I tucked one forward
And one at the bottom and one on each side. Then left some pokey pieces because they were too short, and I thought they were cute spiky anyway.
