This is a perfect style for a school morning and took us no time at all. It’s not rocket science but looks really pretty. Best part is you can do it with or without a Topsy Tail and you don’t have to have really long hair to make this style work.
Step 1 – Part out rectangular section of hair
You could do this right down the middle of the head, but I think it looked really nice off to the left side. So I purposely parted a bit on a diagonal. I started at the right temple and sectioned the hair a little diagonally to the left side of the head. Then from the left temple parted straight back and then formed the rectangular section of hair. Be sure you’re only parting hair out on top of the head – not down by the ears.
Step 2 – Make a ponytail
Again, I didn’t want this right in the middle of the area I’d parted out, so I positioned the ponytail to the left of it all.
Step 3 – Flip the ponytail through
People call these all kinds of things. We call them “pull-through’s.” If you have a topsy-tail you can flip the hair through with that. Or you can do it “the old fashioned way” and make a “pull through” like we show in our video here.
Step 4 – Part out another rectangular section
Following the same parts from the ponytail above, section out another area of hair right below the first ponytail.
Step 5 – Make another ponytail
Again, keep it to the left of the area you parted out. Be sure to add the first ponytail into this one.
Step 6 – Flip the ponytail
Step 7 – Make a 3rd ponytail
With the remaining hair, comb it all back into a ponytail at the nape of the neck. I tried to comb the hair back at an angle that it covered my parts on the right side of the head. You could stop here, make a bun, or do any other thing you like at this point.
Step 8 – Flip the ponytail again
Step 9 – Curl the ponytail (optional)
