How to Create the Perfect Ponytail!

Today I’m going to let you in a little secret: how to make your ponytail look longer, and more full with just one simple trick! (No hair extensions required!) I’ve done this hairstyle on and off for quite a few years now, it looks so good in second day curls, and you could even add a dutch braided accent going into the ponytail like this.

I would recommend you use curls as the base for your ponytail, because if you have straight hair the trick will be much more noticeable. Plus, when you have a long ponytail of curls it looks great! 😉 You can do whatever curls you’d like, I just did some loose messy curls today for a more casual look.

Time: 1 minute (max!)

Difficulty: Super easy!

Step-by-step instructions:

  1.  Begin by scooping your hair up at the front like you would a normal ponytail..
  2. Next, gradually add hair from both sides of our hair all the way to the base of your neck,
  3. You should a upside down “V” shape of hair left out underneath the ponytail you’re holding in your hand..
  4. Tie off the majority of the hair in a high ponytail (the higher you do it, the longer you hair will look)
  5. And leave that V shaped section out of the ponytail..
  6. Adjust the ponytail to you liking and make sure the hair underneath is not visible.
  7. And you’re done!

Diy Tieback Braid

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying the Easter season!

Today I have this super pretty braid to show you! I came up with it on Easter to do on one of my sisters for the vigil. Everyone loved it, and I thought it turned out really well, so I knew I had to do a tutorial for it!  I did it again on my cousin when she came over to my house last week, and decided to take some pics for fun, but they turned out so well I decided not to take new ones with the braid on myself. The video is done on me though. 😉

The name of the braid literally comes from how you create it, its just a series of tie-backs  flipped under themselves.  Then you pull the edges a bit to create some dimension to the braid, and repeat!

Another thing I love about this braid is the fact that you can do it on almost any hair type! So straight hair, curly hair, wavy hair, messy hair, clean hair, dirty hair, long hair, and you can even turn it into a half up for short hair! How awesome is that?

One other thing that is great about this hairstyle, is that anyone can do it! It doesn’t require any braiding whatsoever, just tying sections of hair together!

Plus it’s a super secure braid because of all the hair ties, so if you have super thick hair (like my cousin ;)) it works great, and if you have really thin hair it should work really well too!

Items needed: a handful of rubber hair ties (preferably to match your hair colour), and a bobby pin or two.

Time: 5-10 minutes

Skill level: Easy

I hope you all liked this hairstyle as much as I do! I honestly think it’s one of those hairstyles that could be perfect for most occasions, for a casual look leave as is, or make it a bit more messy looking, or to really dress it up you could curl the hair before braiding and then add some small flowers and hair jewels to the braid, it looks soo good! 😉
