Our second back to school hairstyle favorite is this funky twisted ponytail. It’s a trendy + girly style that is simple to do and keeps hair right in place. The first style we shared had braided buns so for this one we wanted to do a ponytail and instead of using braids we went for twists.
Since you have different sections to work with you can play around with the colors of the hair ties or accessories you use. We went with yellow since that is one of the colors of Gaby’s school.
I really like that this hairstyle is very versatile and cool, as Gaby calls it.
1. Start off by applying a pea-to-quarter size amount of styling cream on hair. I used the SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk because I wanted to polish hair and control the frizz for an overall sleek look.
2. Separate a full section of hair at the front, from one side to the other. I made this section about 2-3 inches thick. Tie this section.
2. Then make sure to tie the rest of the hair in the back into a ponytail to keep it in place while you style the front.
3. Take the front section and divide it into 4 equal sections, tying each one with an elastic hair rubber band. Ideally, these four sections should all have relatively the same size and each one should have a mini-ponytail.
4. Move on to the back section and start gathering all of the hair to make your ponytail. Make sure to smooth out any creases or re-do the ponytail if you need to.
5. Once you have the ponytail ready and in place, grab it with one hand and start twisting the four mini ponytails in the front one by one, incorporating them into the big ponytail in the back.
6. Once all of the front sections have been tied into the main ponytail, add a bit more of the styling cream to condition the ponytail hair before starting to twist it.
7. Separate the ponytail hair into two sections and twist them each individually and then once they are both twisted, twist them together.
8. Add a cute hair accessory to the ponytail. And you’re done!
