HOW TO: SOPHISTICATED TWISTED PONYTAIL

twisted hair up do

Hello Beauties,

I hope your all well… I’m so sorry I’ve neglected my blog a little recently. I’ve had a lot going on in my personal life, but I’m back and raring to go 🙂
Today I bring to you this gorgeous twisted ponytail. I thinks It’s absolutely beautiful and it is sooo easy to achieve.
So let get into it… here’s what you will need:
–   Brush
–   Bobby pins
–   Hair bobble
–   Hair spray

I think this style looks really sophisticated and sleek when done on straight hair but that’s just my personal preference. So firstly brush your hair and part where you feel comfortable. I’ve gone for a slight side part.

Starting on one side, section of the very front ( as pictured below)

Next you want to split this into two and cross the strand closest to the hairline over the other, twice (see below)

Now we are literally going to grab more hair from the bottom of the twist and add it into the front section each time we cross.

Continue this all the way down to just above the nape of the neck (if your struggling, head on over to my Instagram where I filmed a short tutorial on this hair look)

You then just want to use a bobby pin or two to secure this in place for the time being.

Repeat the above on the opposite side

Now that both sides are done, hold all the hair together at the nape, remove the bobby pins you had used to secure the first section

Then use your fingers to smooth down the hair between the two twists before securing the hair with a hair bobble

Finally you need to grab a small section of the pony tale from underneath and wrap this around to hide the hair bobble.

Finally, secure this with a bobby pin. spritz over some hairspray, and your done 🙂

I hope you found this tutorial easy to follow. Please leave me your feedback in the comments below 🙂
As I mentioned above I also filmed a few clips and uploaded it to Instagram, so if your struggling please head over to my Instagram sophiekathleen_
Thanks so much for reading.

    This tutorial is excellent. And your hair looks fab after it's finished.

    Also I love your blog layout, so pretty and elegant, and your about me brought a tear to my eye. I know how hard it is to battle with anxiety. But you're already part way on your way to achieving your destiny to make everybody feel beautiful, which in itself is a beautiful aim. 😀
