this week’s video comes to you from south africa! during her three week stay, jessica was invited to a cocktail party and wanted to rock an updo… with only 3 bobby pins and hair tie. that evening inspired this week’s video: the 5 MINUTE TWISTED PONYTAIL.
this go-to look is the PERFECT way to break out of the ordinary and add a little variety to your styling choices.
section out the pieces you want to leave AROUND YOUR FACE.
divide your hair in half down the CENTER.
choose the side you want your TWIST on.
take a vertical section and divide it into 2 sections. twist the BOTTOM section over the top.
ADD HAIR to bottom section and TWIST it over the top strand. continue this until you reach the end of the first section.
in the other section, SCOOP all the hair that borders the hairline and add it to the ponytail. SECURE it with your hair tie. (leaving out a section the middle will help your ponytail appear longer.)
make a little space above the ponytail and FLIP the ends upwards and over. tuck it into the little space and PULL IT THROUGH. pull to tighten. (this creates the twisted look around the ponytail.)
now take a medium strand of hair from the hair left out of the ponytail (from step 7) and WRAP IT AROUND the hair tie to hide it and pin them in place with bobby pins. (taking it from the hair you left out will join the 2 sections together and create 1 long ponytail).
LOOSEN your backcombing around the crown to your desired volume.
with your TWISTED PONYTAIL in place, it’s time to pull out nvenn’s ‘fix’ flexible working hairspray and cement your style. this INVISIBLE and WEIGHTLESS hairspray is every girl or guy’s best friend.
