Red carpet hair and real life hair don’t often intersect, but the go-to look–the super cute twisted ponytail works both ways. Not only does the pony transition from day to night, but it will look irresistible. This tutorial breaks down the anatomy of the perfect ponytail look. It takes five minutes to throw up and it is ideal for dirty, unwashed hair.
For this tutorial you will need a comb, a rubber band and several bobby pins. Now, follow the simple steps below and you will learn how to recreate this amazing ponytail hairstyle!
Step 1: Grab a small section from the top on one side of your head and bring it to the back.
Step 2: Grab a similar sized section from the top on the other side and combine it with the first section. Use a clear rubber band for this purpose.
Step 3: Gently loose the rubber band to make the look more effortless.
Step 4: Take a small section from the top and bring it towards the back.
Step 5: Repeat on the other side and tie the two sections off.
Step 6-9: Following the same technique, continue adding new hair pieces to the ponytail look.
Step 10: Take the rest of your hair and tie it off with a rubber band. Secure tightly.
Step 11: Secure tightly. If you want to hide the elastic, grab a small piece of hair underneath your ponytail and wrap it around the rubber band. When you have covered the hair elastic, pin the end of the hair strand underneath your ponytail using a bobby pin.
Step 12: As a final touch, curl the ends of your ponytail with a curling iron. To do that, wrap a relatively small section of your hair around the iron and wait a couple of minutes before releasing the curl. Repeat the process with the next section of your hair. Lightly spray your new hairstyle with a firm-hold hairspray. Now all you need to do is sit back and wait for the compliments to roll in!
