Dress Up Your Ponytail

fancy ponytailAs a little girl who had a no makeup, no hair styling mom, it was challenging for me to learn the ins and outs of fancy hair. I find the more simple the instructions, the better. So I'm loving this tutorial on how to make your ponytail event-ready with three simple steps.


Even a hair-challenged gal like myself was able to master the inverted ponytail after one try.

  • Gather your hair into a loose ponytail at the nape of your neck.
  • Create a hole above the hair band.
  • Twist your ponytail to tighten, and thread your ponytail through the hole.

Once you've tightened the ponytail, you're ready to rock the look.
