Who doesn’t love ponytails? They are the perfect hairstyle for special occasions as well as for everyday looks. Creating an elegant hairstyle with a twist is an easy way to spice things up, especially when you have to go out to a fancy event. The elegant low ponytail is here to transform your overall look! Now, let’s get started!
Step 1: Begin by brushing your hair to make it nice and smooth, free of tangles. Add a little leave-in conditioner on your ends and lengths of your hair. You can also invest in a special tousling spray to maximize volume. Spray the product throughout your strands and take small sections to distribute it evenly. Now, separate your hair in half. Grab the crown section and tie it off with a rubber band at the nape of your neck.
Step 2: Divide the bottom part of your hair in half.
Step 3: Take one of the two strands and add a rubber band a few inches down. This will help all the hairs stay in place.
Step 4: Wrap the same section around the main ponytail, gently twisting it to achieve the twist effect. Use a bobby pin underneath the pony to secure the twist.
Step 5: Do the same on the other side – wrap the section, twist it around and pin in place. You can add some additional hairspray all over your hairstyle.
If you want to make the low ponytail look even more elegant, straighten the ponytail using your straightener. Use a fine tooth comb to section out your hair and control the direction of the straightener. Then, run the flat iron from the base of your ponytail to the ends. If you want to give your hair slight curls at the ends don’t be afraid to do this with your iron. Just be aware of your heat settings, because if the straightener is too hot it could cause your ends to kink. That’s it! Your elegant low ponytail is ready!
