Topsy Tail Side Ponytail


Looking for a cute way to style your ponytail? The beauty of the topsy tail effect is that it adds interest and texture to your final look without a lot of effort. The best part of this tutorial is that you don’t need to have crazy thick, textured hair to make this ponytail look chic. Whether your hair is straight, curly, thick or thin, this hairstyle will look absolutely amazing every single time! Now follow the steps below and try out this messy masterpiece.

You’ll need only two main products for this tutorial, so go to the beauty shop and invest in a good quality topsy tail, a comb and several clear elastics.

Step 1: Comb through your hair to ensure there are no knots or tangles. To side part your hair nicely, draw a line from the arch of your eyebrow on whatever side you choose. Use your fingers to guide the hair into place. Next, grab the top of your hair on the opposite side and secure it with clear elastic.

Step 2: Take your topsy tail and place the loop side up behind the elastic. As shown on the picture, thread your hair through the loop.

Step 3: Use the end of the topsy tail to pull the ponytail down to tighten it.

Step 4: Pick up two new sections of hair to the right and left of the first tail and secure them together with clear elastic. Repeat this topsy tail technique, flipping the new section.

Step 5: Again, pull the tail back down, creating a nice topsy tail.

Step 6: Continue this topsy tail process using outside sections of the remaining hair.

Step 7: After creating your last tail, add clear elastic band at the end.

Step 8: Use your fingers to adjust your ponytail to make sure the elastics are hidden. Emphasise the twists by gently pulling the edges of the ponytails. As a final step, spray the style with hairspray and comb through the tail to remove any tangles.
