Easy Twist Pony

Monday, June 3, 2013

Description of Photo


Super easy tisty pony! This pony works well when your hair is on day 3 or ....5 (what?!) and has a lot of texture in it! Clean hair will tend to fall out easy, no silky hair welcomed for this!

Step 1: Split hair in 2 sections, as if you were to do pig tails.
Step 2. Tie hair in a knot and pull! Then bobby pin the knot to your head.

Helpful side notes: On step 2, look at the second photo- see how the left hand is slightly higher than the right? It helps if the right hand is parallel to your spine and your left hand is in the middle of the top of your head. At this position, pull the hair into a knot. Then meet your left hand down to your right. This is the direction you would want your hair to rest in. At this point, pin the knot to your head and spray! Hope this makes sense, if not shoot us a comment or an email and we'll describe it in more detail. Good luck!

I don't have as voluptuous a ponytail as Molly but I tried it anyway! I tucked the ponytail under and pinned it up too. Hooray for one more easy hairstyle to add to my repertoire!

Joanna Molly Ballentine Stilley said...

haha Kelly!!! So glad you tried it!!!

Deborah Koroghlian said...

Wow, followed the pictures and tried this on day 3...teased the ends and it worked great! Thank you for another easy style idea! Debbie

Deborah! So glad you got to try it and that it worked so well for you!

Teasing the ends it a great extra tip also to blend the to pieces together and add volume! Thanks so much for your input!

This is gorgeous, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how you've pinned the knot. I did the knot just fine, I am just not sure how to get it to lay right the way you have it. Any hints? Thanks!

agree with sarah rae! i thought this was working when i tried it, but then it just... didn't. i think i had trouble getting it to lie right after i tied it, and pinning it correctly. love the look, and would love to do something so glam with 3 (or 4, or 5...) day-old hair!

Hola, después del paso dos me pierdo y no se como hacer el nudo, será que me puedes ayudar? gracias :)

Hey girls! Pinning is tricky especially trying to explain it- were actually working on planning to possibly do a video of this to make it clearer!

As far as pinning...it was kinda like we were crocheting the hair...We didnt open the pin, we just stabbed the knot and weaved it in grabbing hair and securing it with the rest of the hair... we did this around the knot. For extra security we crossed another pin over the crochet pinned. Kinda like an X! Does that make ANY sense??!! Please let us know if not- we'll explain again if we have to!

Hola Anonymous! Mi espanol es muy malo and no puedo escribir bein! Perdon! Estamos planiando ser un video para explicamos mejor! haha perdon por mi espanol!!

Jordan Bartlett said...

A video would be super awesome, I can't get the two pieces to fall together like yours! I split, tie and pin and it looks silly the two pieces stay separated !:( I tried pulling and twisting all which ways and just can't figure it out. Thank you!

One more vote for a video, please!

toni said...

I agrees with Jordan . a video would be great! I can get up to the second picture perfect but it stays separated from that step. I'm not sure what to do next

Adrienne Meagher said...

I can't seem to figure it out. Is there a step missing? I tie the knot but end up with two tails.

Kymm Stafford said...

This is so cute, but I'm not sure what is meant by a knot. To me a knot means to cross, tuck and pull the ends twice, but that seems too bulky. If I only cross, tuck and pull once, it seems more likely to fall out. Can you please explain exactly what you do to tie the knot?
Thank you.

When I tried it, I had two separate pieces of hair from the knot, much like photo #2...she has hair in both hands in that pic. So, how does it go from hair in each hand to one smooth ponytail??

Anonymous said...

Would love to see this in a video!!! I've tried it out multiple times but cant quite get is to stay!

Brittany said...

I LOVE this look, but I'm having some trouble with it too. Another vote for a video tutorial!

How on Earth does one split hair in two with only two hands? I can't make a ponytail unless I use both hands. And I can't use both hands for the second half, because I need to hold the first "ponytail" with one of my hands. I tried using a hairtie, but I need both hands to remove the hairtie and keep the hair together.

video please! i love this look and really want to do it, but i just cant quite figure it out... as said before, after doing the knot i am left with two strands of hair and have no idea how to make that into one ponytail. i am also a little confused with the pinning and how that works too. any assistance you could offer would be very much appreciated, and a video would be fabulous!

thanks!
