Women all over the world absolutely love the twisted ponytail. Typically, when we think of a simple low ponytail, we think of something plain and boring, or very elegant and strict. But a twisted ponytail is a very fun hairstyle, and after a little bit of practice, it is also very easy to create.
How to Do Twist Ponytail
Step 1: Comb your hair so that it is free of any tangles.
Step 2: Take a smaller section of hair on both sides of your face and clip the sections away.
Step 3: Comb the rest of your hair and tie it into a low ponytail, securing it with an elastic.
Step 4: Take one side section and divide it into three equal parts.
Step 5: Twist one section up and wrap it around your ponytail, starting with the lowest section. Secure the ends with bobby pins.
Step 6: Do the same on the other side, pinning every section around your ponytail.
Extra Tip: To make the pinning of sections easier, tease the ends of each section and add a bobby pin to it before wrapping it around the ponytail, as that will make the whole process a lot easier.
