Style Inspiration

Styling Steps

  • Divide your hair into five individual sections. Form a "V" shaped section, on the side and create a high ponytail held with a hair friendly elastic.
  • Create sections of hair parted from the top of your head to the top of your ear.
  • On the right side, create two sections.
  • Pull the ponytail tail all the way through the elastic band creating a top loop.
  • Put your thumbs inside the loop and pull them apart on either side causing the loop to spread and fan out the ends of your hair.
  • Work with the loop until it is the shape of your choice. Pull the left side panel up and around the center ponytail.
  • Use a bobby pin to secure the top of the ponytail.
  • Pull the right side up and drape it over the top of the ponytail and secure the panel with a pin at the top.
  • Take a section from both of the front panels and drape it back over the base of the looped ponytail.
  • Secure with bobby pins.
  • If desired, use a medium barreled curling iron to twist the front sections or to turn them under.
