A ponytail is classic, but sometimes, the standard pony might feel a bit boring. The ponytail with a twist brings in a little edge and a different feel, yet your hair is still casually pulled back into a classic ponytail. Incorporating hair from the sides takes a bit of practice but it’s easy once you get the hang of it.
Separate the hair on the right side of your head into two sections and make a ropebraid along your hairline. For this ropebraid technique, you connect the hair as you work down the side of the hairline. So every time you do a twist, incorporate some hair from above or below.
Continue until you get to right behind the ear and secure the ends with a hair elastic. Repeat this technique on the other side.
Gather all the hair left out of the ropebraids and create a low ponytail. Secure it with a hair elastic. Use two if your hair is very thick.
Take a 1/4-inch (0.75-cm) section of hair from underneath the ponytail, wrap it around the hair elastic, and bobby pin the ends into the bottom of the ponytail. For hold, use a medium-hold hairspray.
