HAIR TUTORIAL: Double Wrap Topsy Ponytail


STEP 1: Using a brush, smooth hair into a ponytail at the mid to bottom of the neck and secure with a small rubber elastic.

STEP 2: Take a small section of hair from the ponytail (about 1/2-inch thick) and pull it aside.

STEP 3: Wrap that section of hair around the ponytail to camouflage the elastic and secure with a bobby pin. Spritz the hair in the ponytail with an aerosol hairspray (or use a smoothing pomade) and comb through to smooth the ponytail.

STEP 4: Using an additional small elastic, secure it midway down the shaft of the ponytail.

STEP 5: Spread apart the section within the elastics into two. Flip the bottom fo the tail up and through the opening.

STEP 6: Repeat STEP 4 again.

STEP 7: Repeat STEP 5 again. Spritz the entire style with an aerosol hairspray to smooth flyaways or frizz.
