After stumbling on this beauteous ponytail on pinterest, I sat at my computer last night and tried to wrap my brain around how the heck I could recreate it. When I looked in the mirror after attempting the aforementioned recreation, I realized 1: I did not make anything close to an exact replica, but 2: this is a pretty darn cute and (most importantly) rather cool looking little ‘do.
So naturally, I shall attempt at explaining how to do this. If I make no sense, let me know and I’ll whip up a pdf of stick figure instructions, because trying to photograph a hair tutorial using auto timer is not exactly the easiest thing known to man.
Here you go.
1: Get hair nice and messy. Tease the roots a little and spray a bunch of texturizing spray to give it some grit. (I used Eva NYC surf’s up texture spray. Addicting stuff.)
2: Twist one side of your hair down to the nape of your neck and secure with a rubber band or bobby pins. Now twist the other side, and secure both twists in a ponytail at the nape of your neck. (basically, do this)
3: Pull your hair apart above teh rubber band and pull the ponytail through from front to back ( aka make a twisted ponytail.)
4: Coverup the rubber band by grabbing a strand of hair from your ponytail, wrapping it around the elastic, and pinning in place.
5: Now the fun part. Twist your ponytail into a rope until it starts to bend. Now, fold the ends of your pony tail up, towards the nape of your neck, and pin in place right under the (hair covered) ribber band.
6: Pull out some hairs around your face, add a few pins here and there to secure, mess up to your desired messy hair fancy, then spray and you are done.
Voila. Yet another messy ponytail to add to the lineup.
Thank you Pinterest…and whoever that model was backstage at Dolce & Gabanna who was my muse.
