The Twisted Ponytail

Hi guys! Irrelephant here taking over while Jacquelyn is off in Thailand! Today we’re chatting all about hair. We often get asked to share hair tutorials that can take you from work to dinner and beyond, so we thought we’d oblige. This twisted ponytail tutorial is a style that’s easy, cute AND elegant. Best of all, it can be done in any length of hair!

Hair how-to
|STEP 1|
Tease your crown! Spray Bumble and Bumble Dryspun Finish from mid shaft all the way to the to ends.

|STEP 2|
Grab your headwrap (ours is from Flower Crown Society) and wrap it around your head, like you’d wear a crown. Tie it into a knot and tuck the little ears under the wrap. Alteratively, you could make a bow or leave the ears out – depending on the look you’re after!

|STEP 3|
Pull your hair all to one side, gently twist it and pin it as shown. Make sure to pin right under the wrap.

|STEP 4|
Grab a 1 inch section of hair from around your face, cross it over the previous pinned section and pin it in place.

Hair DIY
|STEP 5| 
Make sure your bobby pins are secure (try crossing 2 bobby’s together to form an “x” for bonus points). Then, spray and gently pull a few pieces out for a more undone look.

That’s it! It should be noted that the key here is texture! If you have any further questions, send us an email or comment below. Special thanks to Allison and her beautiful headwraps
