THE CRISS-CROSS PONYTAIL

THE PERFECT PONYTAIL UPGRADE FOR THE WEEKEND…

…or for wedding hair !


Here’s the how-to-do the criss-cross ponytail:

1. Gather up a ponytail, but separate a section of hair on each side in the front and leave that loose.

2. Take a section of hair on your left side of the head and separate it into a top layer and a bottom layer. Take the top layer in your left hand.

3. Cross the section of hair over to the right side of your head, above the ponytail. Use a bobby pin to pin in place.

4. Take the top section of hair on the right side of your head and cross over the left section. See that little tail hanging out of your first section? Grab that as you are crossing the right section of hair over. Pin in place.

5. Take your remaining section of hair on the left side and cross that over to the right. Don’t forget to grab that little tail and incorporate it into your section before you pin. Pin in place just over your ponytail elastic.

6. Take your remaining section of hair on the right (and that little leftover tail, if you have one) and cross it over to the left side. Pin in place.

7 & 8. If you have a short tail hanging out of your last crossover piece, you can just pin it under the ponytail. If you have a long tail remaining, grab a section from each side of your ponytail and wrap around the elastic. Pin in place. Once you are done you should have a gorgeous ponytail!
