The Knotted Pony- 2 Minute Hairstyle

The Knotted Pony- 2 Minute Hairstyle

Ciao tutti!

I’m back with a quick little hair tutorial to spice up that pony tail of yours.  I posted this on my instagram a couple months ago and thought it would make a great post since it’s easy and unique. This hairstyle takes literally 2 minutes to do and it’s a cool, elegant pony for everyday 🙂

  1. Divide hair into two parts. I use the end of a teasing brush to make sure I get a straight, clear line down the middle.

2. Section off the top half of each of those two parts of hair while still maintaining the divide you just made.

3. Loop one of your two smaller pieces around the other, and pull through in a simple “knot”- as if you were tying your shoe.

4. With your smaller pieces still in hand from the knot just tied, gather the rest of your hair on each side so you are holding two pieces.

5. Tie another knot, just as before.

6. And tie one more knot.

7. Fasten with a tiny rubber hair tie (I like the little Scunci brand ones) and voila!

 

 

 

You can keep some pieces hanging down in front for a looser feel, or make it a little tighter. 🙂

As always, let me know what you guys think of this idea, and a presto!

    Super cute! Do you think this would work for people with shoulder length hair?

      Thank you! I think if you started the first knot even higher up on your head than I did, you could definitely make it work. You’d just have to make sure to keep all the hair tight as you are knotting 🙂

        I’ll be sure to give that a try 🙂 My hair is around shoulder length, maybe a few inches past my shoulders, right now. I used to have such long hair but I opted to get the long bob style back in December 😛
