Don’t you love it when you come across a beautiful hair tutorial on Pinterest? So pretty you just have to know how it’s done? Then you click it and it takes you somewhere that has nothing to do with the picture. Or it was just that, just a pretty style someone wanted to show case. Well, I have a beautiful style taken from Pinterest today with a tutorial. You’re welcome.
Recognize the style to the right? You might have seen it floating about for a while. I know I’ve seen it many times. It’s pretty. It’s messy. It’s sexy. It looks easy. As far as I saw, there wasn’t a tutorial for it. Although, I’m going to be honest, if I see a cute style I rarely look at how it’s done. I always want to see if I can replicate it and I most definitely don’t want to copy other people’s work, so I just try it myself. That’s what I did with this one. I didn’t search too hard for a tutorial, I just created one! I present to you the four step side ponytail!
And besides the hair color difference and hers is a little messier, I think I pretty much got it. Not to mention that I got it in 4 steps! Easy hairstyles, that’s what I’m all about people.
Here’s how it’s done:
As you can see, it’s very very easy. Let me break it down to you with all the products I use.
- Tease you hair from the crown down to the nape of your neck. For the best holding tease I use Big Sexy Hair Dry Shampoo, this teaser comb, & Kenra 25 Hairspray to hold it. As you might be able to tell, my hair is 2 or 3 days old which I think works best. If your hair is silky smooth or you need to add some texture, try spraying with this spray and play or this one. It will help.
- Take the top middle section and poof up and twist. Secure with a bobby pin. (Here’s my tutorial on how to use bobby pins)
- Next take the big chunk of the front section and twist it back under & over the other twist. Meaning, you don’t want to completely hide it but you do want to help cover the bobby pins and have it look a little put together.
- Then take the remaining chunk from the other side and wrap it over & under the one you just did. And by over & under I mean pull it past where you just pinned horizontally and under where you just pinned vertically. Does that make sense?
Then you’re done! See, so super easy! And seriously, I love this style! It’s versatile, perfect ‘mom’ hair but still cute. It can be dressed up or down, you name it. Who knew that a side ponytail would be so cute? For some reason that just reminds me of the 80’s. This is so not 80’s!
