Not Just a Ponytail

next
A Tad Monroe Giveaway
there are so many simple changes you can do to pulling your hair back into a ponytail to completely change the look.

This tutorial is simple and very similar to the Elegant Half Up.

You can start with straight, curly, or practically any texture of hair! It does need to be long enough to pull back into a ponytail, but if you have short hair, just try the Elegant Half up!

Wow! What a cute way to wear a ponytail….I will be trying this today! Question, you always use the clear elastics, where do you find them? I’ve looked at both Target and Walmart and I can only find the really small tiny ones. Thanks!

Here’s a question for your November FAQ video. I’ve had my hair teased only once in my life, and I swore I’d never do it again because it took me three times longer than normal to brush it out (after conditioning), and I tore out several strands of hair in the process. You teased you hair in this video for a simple, everyday style. So, does that mean you have any tricks for detangling?

Thanks! 🙂

Kate says · 10.29.12

start combing it out from the bottom and slowly work your way to the roots!

This is so gorgeous! I really love your posts!!
I do have two questions for you, but they don’t have anything to do with this post.
First, I have really really super thick hair, and I’ve never been able to just use elastic to keep my hair in a pony tail. It usually hurts my fingers, snaps, or slides. Is there anything else you would recommend instead of elastic (and other than regular hair bands)
Secondly, since I have really thick hair, I have trouble doing anything with my hair. When I blow dry it, it just becomes huge, frizzy, and a mess. The only thing is can do is straighten it or put it in a ponytail or bun. Since you haven’t felt/dealt with my hair, I know it’s hard to give me advice about this. But, I was wondering if there are any products or techniques you would recommend?
Thanks so much!

So cute! This is giving me major haircut remorse. I cut it super short again after a 2 year grow out…this makes me wish I hadn’t. 🙁 Oh well its only hair and it will grow back!

Ok, so I love this style and was able to do it with ease this morning. Problem, it fell out after a few hours. I used 4 pins and plenty of hair spray. Is there a trick to putting bobby pins in so they hold?

kate, i came across your blog a few months ago and absolutely love it!! this post is great and i can’t wait to try it out. do you think that this technique could be done as a side ponytail? i love the look of a loose, soft side pony and it seems like this technique would lend itself to that look. any tips?

thanks, always looking forward to the next post!

I have tried this hairstyle several times. I am able to do it and it looks great, but after an hour or so it seems to start to fall apart and pieces of hair come loose all over. I have tried using more bobby pins and using more hairspray. Do you have any tips?
