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!
Section off the top part of your hair and secure it with a small hair elastic.
Feed the end of the half ponytail right above the hair tie, so it creates a twist.
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.
Feed the end of the ponytail right above the lower elastic so that it creates another twist, just as you did in Step 2.
Repeat Steps 3 & 4 again as many times as it takes until the bottom section of your hair is completely secured in a ponytail.
Gently tug the ponytail twists until you get the desired volume, et voila!
