My hair is quite long now and I am always struggling with trying to think of fun, creative new things I can do to style it. I´ve always said I wanted my hair long again so I could do more things with it, but I too fall into the ¨braid, ponytail, hair down¨trap of always doing the same things with my hair.
I had a communion on Saturday and I wanted to add a little something to my ponytail without having a full on updo. I didn´t want it to look like I was trying too hard, so I created an easy twist with just bobby pins, a brush, and a little hairspray to set it. Here is a step by step to get your hair to look like this:
Step 2: Brush out your hair so there are no knots and it´s smooth.
Step 3: Bring your hair over one shoulder as if you were going to make a low ponytail. Instead of securing it with a band, twist the hair inward towards your ear.
Step 4: Once you´ve got it twisted, take a bobby pin and insert in towards the back of the twist. Continue inserting pins in the front and the back until it feels secure.
Step 5: Spray the crap out of it with hairspray so it holds tight. Keep an extra bobby pin or two in your purse just in case.
Tips: It´s better to do this on day old hair, meaning you´ve washed it the day before and not just before you are creating the twist. ¨Dirty¨hair always holds style better. Also, try to use bobby pins that are the same color as your hair so they are hidden better. I used blond bobby pins and you can´t really see them at all.
