Twisted Ponytail Tutorial

Eva Amurri shares a Twisted Ponytail Tutorial

Coming atcha hot with another long hair tutorial! Even though my extensions are out now, I LOVED creating these hairstyles, and lots of them I can still do with my medium-length hair! This one is perfect for people like me who aren’t the best at doing fancy braids on themselves. I can french braid Marlowe’s hair no problem, but doing one on myself? Forget about it.

This twisted style mimics the intricacies of a french braid, and keeps your hair pulled back for those hot summer days. The tutorial is in the video below. All you need are several small elastics, a brush, and some hair spray to finish it off, if you’d like it. I also love how my highlights created a natural pattern in the hairstyle. I wasn’t expecting that, and it made the style so much more fun!

Let me know if you have any questions!

Step by Step…

Step 1


Section off the top part of your hair and secure it with a small hair elastic. 

Step 2


Feed the end of the half ponytail right above the hair tie, so it creates a twist.

Step 3

Add Hair

Grab some more hair from the bottom section and add it to the ponytail, securing it with another elastic a few inches below the first.

Step 4

Twist Again

Feed the end of the ponytail right above the lower elastic so that it creates another twist, just as you did in Step 2.

Step 5


Repeat Steps 3 & 4 again as many times as it takes until the bottom section of your hair is completely secured in a ponytail. 

Step 6


Gently tug the ponytail twists until you get the desired volume, et voila!
