I LOOOOOVE that the classic ponytail is back making a style statement this season!
Sometimes I am a little shy when it comes to this kind of stuff but today I thought I would try another hair tutorial and show you a very simple trick to create a long full looking ponytail. I call it the double ponytail. This is a trick that I learned in high school and from time to time I like to wear it when I want something a little different. This style is a little more elegant than just the regular ponytail. So, here it goes. P.S. In number 2 I totally look mad. haha But it was the best action shot of that step.
1 // Start with your hair blow-dried and curled. This is actually a few days after I washed it. But freshly washed will work great and probably look better!
2 // Pull the lower half of your hair into a mid range ponytail.
3 // Comb and side-sweep the top half of your hair. Give it a little back combing for some volume if you need it.
4 // Secure the top half of your hair into a ponytail directly on top of the lower one.
5 // Drop the top ponytail. Loosen a few places and tuck away any strays to make sure it looks nice!! Make sure to view the ponytail from both sides and adjust to make sure that the lower ponytail is not showing. You may want to experiment and try a few different ponytail heights to find a combination that works well with your head shape. FIN!!!
Have you ever tried this look before? Are you the ponytail type? Let me know if this is a type of post that you enjoy or not! And if you have done any hair tutorials, I want to see!! Post up and send me a link.
