Now you know the trick for the perfect curly hair ponytail, this curly hair tutorial will show you a simple twist to dress up your ponytail.
Although I encourage you to get out of your ponytail rut, I still wear a ponytail but I like to give it a slightly different twist.
This easy hairstyle tutorial is great for curly and straight hair. By leaving the side sections of your hair out of your ponytail, you can twist them back over the top to create an interesting detail.
Curly Hairstyle Tutorial – The Twist Over Ponytail
- Separate 1-2 inch sections of hair on either side of your face and pull the rest of your hair back into a ponytail. I recommend a hair bungee for curly hair (less pulling and tangles) but you can also use a hair elastic.
- Take the left section of hair and twist it up and back and twist it over the top of your ponytail. Pin in place with bobby pins.
- Repeat with the right side, twisting your hair up and back. Loop it over your ponytail and pin in place with bobby pins underneath. You can leave the ends of these twisted sections loose and they can blend into your ponytail.
- To emphasise the twisted sides, you can use some bobby pins to keep the twists in shape.
Why not try braiding the side sections for a different look. How do you give your ponytail a twist?
