30 Day Hair Challenge: French Twist-Inspired Pony


Time: 10 minutes
Products: hair tie, hairspray and LOTS of bobby pins

French twists are a classic hairstyle, but I wanted to add my own little flare to it. Here’s what I did one morning!

To do this look, it is best to do it with unwashed hair. The little bit of oil left in your hair helps mold the twist and keep it together.

Start with an inch or so of hair on the backside of your head. Slowly, twist the hair clock-wise. As you twist add more hair to the strand.

You can direct the direction of the twist by adding different parts of your hair. As you go, secure the twist with bobby pins inside the twist.

When you get close to your neck, grab a hair tie and pull your hair into a low ponytail. Next, spray your hair multiple times with hairspray. (Or just spray it once. I tend to be a huge hairspray junkie.)

If you want, take a piece of hair from your ponytail and wrap it around the elastic hair tie and secure with a bobby pin.

All done! That was easy, right?!

(It took me several tries to get it to look good. So don’t give up!)
