Twisted Ponytail Hair Tutorial

Hi gorgeous ladies!!! 🙂 Here is a step by step tutorial on how to achieve this twisted ponytail hairstyle! I always love a good pony tail, but especially when you throw in some extra eye catching detail! 😉 It only takes a few minutes longer than your regular pony, so give it a try and tag me in your recreations so I can see!!
Twisted Ponytail Tutorial
Step 1,2,3: Put your hair into a ponytail, leaving out three inch sections on each side. You can adjust your pony tail to your personal preference, (high, low, middle.) Leave out enough hair on each side to make the twists. I left about three inches out.
Step 4: Cut the left section in half, horizontally, and twist this hair towards your pony tail. It is crucial that you are twisting the hair towards the back of your head! If you twist it towards your face, it is going to make the look less smooth.
Step 5: Wrap the twisted piece over your pony tail. You’ll want to make sure you wrap over, not under, to achieve this look.
Step 6: Attach the piece with a bobby pin. Make sure you attach the piece very close to the pony tail. If you attach it further out, it’s going to leave you with random hanging bits far from the pony! Another tip – Use similar colored bobby pins and hair ties as your hair color, this will help with hiding them and making your look seamless!
Step 7: Cut the right section of hair, horizontally, and twist this portion of hair towards the back of your pony tail. 
Step 8, 9, 10: Continue alternating sides until you have pinned up all the remaining hair from the right and left sections.
