Beauty / Simple Low Ponytail With Some Twists

Larkspur Vintage | Beauty: Simple Low Ponytail With Some TwistsPonytails can be rather boring, can’t they? I honestly don’t wear my hair in one very often, mostly because I have great disdain for my ears (can one even have disdain for part of their body?!). But with my new desire to step out of my comfort zone, let my ears be free (sort of) and try new hairstyles, I decided to take a simple low ponytail and make it a little more interesting with some mini ponies and a bit of twisting (sounds so professional), to create a look that appears much fancier than it actually is. So let us learn how, shall we?
Larkspur Vintage | Beauty: Simple Low Ponytail With Some Twists1. start by taking two sections of hair from either side of your head; much like the way you would do a half ponytail
2. tie your sections into a ponytail with a small clear elastic (or whatever you want, really)

4. continue the first 3 steps as many or as little times as you like, and the same with your sections, they can be as big or as little as you like; i did 3 twisties and I took fairly small sections, but honestly, I think this look would be quite striking if you used more hair for your twists

6. finish the look off with a cute bow (or whatever you have on hand)

    This is such a simple twist (ha, no pun intended) on a pony tail. I only have about 4 hairstyles, milkmaid braid (the only hairstyle that keeps my hair so long I could almost sit on it, from tangling), single braid, low bun (too painful to pile on my hair on top of my head, but I often feel vaguely as if I’m in the military with a low bun), and the occasional pony tail (which is really no match for thwarting tangles, but for brief occasions…you know short lived events of an hour or two that don’t require much movement). This looks so easy though, I think even I, with my not-so-nimble fingers could recreate it. Thanks for the inspiration! You’re adorable by the way, I love your style. ❤

    This is such a great idea. I’m going to have to try this. I just fear that the twist will be lost in my curly hair. I feel like most pretty little nuances to hairstyles disappear in my hair.
    I love how easy it is though. And I do love a pony tail 🙂
    You are so beautiful! ❤
    Much love
