How to do a twisted ponytail
This summer has seen the arrival of lots of hair trends such as the plaited crown, the loose bun and wavy hair. Yet one of the best of them all is the twisted ponytail. This style has become the must-have hairstyle of summer 2012.
Good news? It's easy to do and gives you a sophisticated look in the blink of an eye. So how is it done, you ask?
Follow our step-by-step instructions and you'll be looking sexy and sophisticated in no time.
To create this hairstyle, you will need:
- Some hair grips
- A brush
- A comb
Start by brushing your hair (ideally with a boar bristle brush) so as to avoid any static build-up.
Step 2With a fine-tooth comb, separate the bottom section of your hair from the top layers and tie this bottom section in a low ponytail. Divide the rest of your hair into two sections.
For extra volume, backcomb the sections of hair at the sides. Twist the left-hand section and pin it to your ponytail with some hair grips, then do the same with the right-hand side.
Step 4Spray a large misting of hairspray over your sophisticated ponytail to make sure that it stays in place all day.
Easy, quick and totally chic, the twisted ponytail is fast becoming the top hair trend for the summer!
