The Twist Ponytail Step-By-Step

Step 1: Prep Your Hair

Start with curled/wavy hair. You can work with your natural texture or perfect your foundation with the use of hot tools. Prep your hair with a volumizing mousse or texturizing spray to add texture and grip. This will help the twists hold better and prevent them from unraveling throughout the day.


Step 2: Begin to Twist!

Begin with one side of your hair and take a small section from the front near your hairline. Divide this section into two smaller sections and twist them together towards the back of your head. Then use a hair elastic to tie the two sections together. Tip: Use a clear rubber band!

Step 3: Twist & Repeat

As you continue to twist the two sections together, gradually incorporate more hair from the same side of your head. This will create a twisted effect that extends diagonally across the back of your head. Secure each section with a hair elastic. Repeat this step as many times until you achieve the desired result.

Step 4: Finishing Touches

Repeat the twisting process on each side of your head, mirroring the twist you created on the first side until you've reached your desired look. For best results, take small sections of hair, twist them together, and gradually incorporate more hair as you work towards the back. Then pull some pieces of the twists to get a looser, textured result. (This also helps hide the hair elastics). I left the rest of the hair down which created a ponytail look! To complete the look, gently tug on the twists to loosen them slightly and create more volume. You can also use a small amount of hairspray to smooth down any flyaways and add extra hold to the style.
