Step 1 – Sweep hair into a ponytail

Brush through hair and pull back into a high ponytail. Secure into place with a hair band.

Step 2 – Hide the hair band

To keep this look oh-so chic, we’re going to hide the hair band. Take a small section of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the band. Secure into place with hair grips.

Step 3 – Time to twist

Divide your ponytail into two sections. Twist each side, holding a twist in each hand. Then, wrap the twists together and secure with a clear hair band.
