Do you remember doing a pull-through ponytail in junior high and feeling extra fancy for the day? I certainly do and this hairstyle is a more sophisticated take on that preteen classic–although it’s just as easy as the original! Soft and romantic, it’s perfect for an evening out or even works nicely on a windy autumn day to keep your hair out of your face. All you need is a few hair elastics and medium to long hair.
Step One: Tie a small, loose ponytail on the top of your head using a clear elastic.
Step Two: Above the elastic, divide your hair into two sections, then flip your ponytail upside down and push it fully through this opening.
Step Three: Repeat the previous steps by gathering half of your hair in another loose ponytail. Divide the hair above your new elastic into two parts and flip your ponytail upside down and push it through the opening.
Step Four: Repeat the steps one last time using all of your hair.
Step Five: Finish the look by loosening each twist and allowing some stray hairs to escape for a softer, more romantic look.
Easy, but so pretty, right? I like how it looks “fancy” but is fairly effortless and it just continues to look better as it gets messier throughout the day. This is a good style for summer months, but I actually really like up-dos in the fall when it starts to get windy and scarves turn my hair into a rat’s nest. We’ve had awful weather here lately and wearing your hair down is just begging for a mess of tangles when you get home! Cheers, Rebecca.
