A classic ponytail – if low, high or on the side – is a quick way to add some spice to your hair, when you just don’t want to leave your mane hanging loose. Sometimes a bad hair day is the cause (well, basically all the time…), sometimes other (less frequent) reasons, like a boring outfit (never the case, right?) or hairstyle-obessions (uhmm, guilty!) might lead you to tie your hair up.
However, don’t you sometimes think “Oh, I really want to pull off a nice hairstyle today, but I don’t have a lotta time, so I’m just gonna tie my hair up in a nice ponytail”? But actually you think a ponytail is quite boring, because you basically wear it all the time? Yeah, know that feeling.
To avoid these thought forever, I’m going to show you three different ways how to tie a ponytail (and every single one is done in only 1 minute!).
Using my Mom’s beautiful hair, I start off by tying it into a normal low ponytail and securing it with a mini elastic. This is going to be the base for the first two looks I’m going to show you:
After I tied the hair, I’m taking a small strand from the ponytail and wrap it around the mini elastic. At the end I just secure the strand at the back of the ponytail with a bobby pin and I’m done!
The “Braided Base”
The next way to tie your ponytail is to take a strand from the ponytail and braid it into a tiny three-strand-braid. Then just wrap the braid around the elastic and pin it like we did with the hairstyle before.
The “Knotted Ponytail”
I start this last look by taking the two small sections next to the face, bringing them back and tying them into a knot. Then I wrap the two strands under the rest of the hair and tie them together with a mini elastic, bring the rest of the hair on top and voilá – finished!
Which one is your favourite?
