Fab Hair Friday: Twisted Ponytail

With the arrival of cool weather, I find myself putting my hair up more and more.  I'm not a fan of wearing my hair down when I'm wearing scarves or big pea coats.  It just gets in the way.  But instead of a regular old ponytail, why not style one with a little "twist"?  Enjoy!

Twisted Ponytail: Estimated Time: 4 minutes; Hair Length: Medium to Long


Texture Cream/Spray or Dry Shampoo
2 Hair grips
Teasing comb (optional)


To add a little roughness to your hair, spray in a texturizing spray or a dry shampoo.

I like a little extra height in my crown area, and if you do too, back comb the crown area of your hair before putting it in a ponytail.

Rough up the ends of your pony to get it looking a little fuller by back combing the ends.

Take two pieces of hair from the bottom of your ponytail and begin to criss cross them around the length of your ponytail.  It will make little X's.

When you get to the end, secure hair with a hair grip.

And that's it!  Simple, huh?  Don't forget to tweet me your photos if you tried this!  And don't forget to check out my previous Fab Hair Friday posts by clicking here.  Happy weekend!  And I will see you all when I get back!!

Yup. You definitely need to give me hair like this. No seriously!

In case you didn't see my response (I know I never do on others)

Shampoo/Conditioner: Sebastian Light --

It's the only shampoo that makes my hair weightless, soft, shiny, and not oily. One of the best shampoos I've used. But I have no idea if the chemicals are bad. I started using this six months ago and my hair started to grow a bit.

Diet: I'm a vegetarian. I drink a lot of coffee.
Meds: None, ever!

Other things: my skin is oily and always breaking out and the pieces that touch my face don't grow. I also wear glasses. Both of which I heard can lead to your hair breakage.

Great look, Toni! By the way I use Bumble and Bumble, but I'm trying to find a better hair spray/mousse solution, a more natural for my sensitive scalp. Preferably sans perfume, do you have any suggestions! Xx

So adorable! I wish I didn't have ultra fine, thin hair! I can never do anything with it except put it in a pony tail :( Hope you're having a great week! xx

Jen Hsieh said...

This is such a super easy hair style to try out! Thanks for the inspiration - I think I'll try working a twisted ponytail tomorrow. :)

I could never get my ponytails to stay twisted, and now I don't have enough hair to try your technique! It looks really cute, tho!

Thanks for your comment on my bloggity :) I'm still nervous about alienating readers, but like my husband says, if people stop reading for that reason, then screw 'em. I've met far too many Washingtonians who are conservative, and it always throws me through a loop! The worst was realizing just how conservative my own family was! My immediate family is liberal, but my aunts and uncles, etc. are crazy, haha
