"Anyone remember the topsy tail? I know I know, it may sound a little retro, but this double wrap topsy tail tutorial takes an old school ponytail and quickly morphs it into a super trendy look that is guaranteed to turn some heads," explains Latest-Hairstyles.com contributorJennie Kay. "This pony style works just as well for the office as it does for a day at the pool. Let’s get started, shall we?"
What You Need:
- 2 Clear Hair Elastics
- A Few Bobby Pins
- Your Favorite Soft Hold Hairspray
- A Smoothing Pomade (optional)
Step 1: Using a brush, smooth hair into a ponytail at the mid to bottom of your neck and secure with a small rubber elastic.
Step 2: Take a small section of hair from the ponytail (about 1/2-inch thick) and pull it aside.
Step 3: Wrap that section of hair around the ponytail to camouﬂage the elastic and secure with a bobby pin. Spritz the hair in the ponytail with an aerosol hairspray (or smoothing pomade) and comb through to smooth the ponytail.
Step 4: Using an additional small elastic, secure it midway down the shaft of the ponytail.
Step 5: Spread apart the section within the elastics into two. Flip the bottom of the tail up and through the opening.
Step 6: Repeat step 4 again.
Step 7: Repeat step 5 again. Spritz the entire style with an aerosol hairspray to smooth ﬂyaways or frizz.
