The Yaki Pony is a hairpiece made of 100 percent Toyokalen fiber. It comes in different lengths from 16 inches to more than 48 inches and has the texture of silky straight human hair. The Yaki Pony comes in a variety of colors to match your natural hair color and has a curl at the end. It can be used to create many different braided hairstyles.

French Braid

To create a long French braid, bobby pin the Yaki Pony to the crown of your head and proceed to French braid your hair, pulling in strands of the Yaki Pony as you go. When your natural hair runs out and the Yaki Pony hair takes over, you may have some scraggly ends that stick out of the braid. To pull them in, wrap a hairnet around the ends and secure the hairnet with a bobby pin.

Braided Headband

To make a braided headband out of your Yaki Pony, attach it to your head underneath your natural hair. Braid the Yaki Pony and pull it up over the top of your head like a headband. Secure it in several places with bobby pins.

Long Side Braid

A long side braid is a great informal look for summer. Attach the Yaki Pony to the crown of your head, but make sure that some of your natural hair falls on top of the Yaki Pony. Pull your hair around to the side and braid until there are about five or six inches left of the Yaki Pony. Use a headband to keep your hair out of your face.

Braided Bun

Use your Yaki Pony to create a voluminous bun. This is an elegant evening look. Attach the Yaki Pony as a pony tail along with your natural hair. It can be a high ponytail, a low ponytail or even a side ponytail. Braid your own hair in with your the Yaki Pony and secure the end of the braid with an elastic. Coil the braid around the center of the ponytail and secure it with bobby pins.
