Twisted Ponytail


This ponytail is one of the simplest, quickest hair-dos and
appears a lot more complicated than it actually is.
My mom used to do my hair like this when I was little
and I have been doing it ever since.
Step 1. Put your hair into a low ponytail and secure it.
Step 2. Create a gap in the middle of your hair right above the
hair tie. 
Step 3. Flip your ponytail toward your head and push it through
the gap. Pull it out and tighten.

I remember there used to be a tool when I was really little that helped you do this and a few other crazy hair styles! Glad to see it come back :) My pony tail never looked like yours though... you have great hair for it!

I remember my mom doing this to my hair too! We called them 'topsy-tails'.

I'll have to give it a go again once my hair grows out.

Amanda @ Eloquent English said...

I remember doing that to my hair!!! =) We had a special little loopy-d-doo tool for it. lol!

Karla @ {The Classy Woman} said...

Your wavy hair is perfect for this style of twisted ponytail! I used to wear my hair this way sometimes as a kid but my hair is stick straight so it looks a little less romantic. Maybe I'll have to try doing it after I've run through my hair with my curling iron. Thanks for sharing! :)

Stephanie said...

great tip! i love that your curled your hair and then flipped it. it makes the look so much more elegant and romantic =)

Love that blazer - where is it from?

ksfanatic said...

I love this hair-do. It is one of my staple looks. I travelled all through Russia with this hair. It looks like I did something fancy but really my tired lazy travelling behind was able to throw it together very quickly! Yay! Thanks for sharing.

You look beautiful as always! I do my hair like this all the time (to channel my 5 year old self). Another cute thing you can do is twist the pony tail into a bun, kind of like a twisted bun of sorts. I did it on my blog, take a look if you can!
