When I exercise, whether it’s the gym, tennis, or yoga, I need my hair to be tied back completely. My hair is so fine and thin that when it is in a regular ponytail, all the fine, thin hairs stick to my sweaty (or should I should I say glowing or sparkling?) skin. I find this incredibly irritating. To fix this problem I either braid my ponytail or I give it a twist. The twisty ponytail is unique and unexpected. Everytime I wear my hair like this I get compliments, as well as a lot of “how did you do that?”! It’s quite simple and keeps all my wispy hair in place. I often do this look for my cherry blossoms too and they think it’s fun!
First, secure your hair back into a ponytail. Then, divide the ponytail into 2 equal sections.
Next, individually twist the 2 sections in the same direction. Here, you can see that I twisted both pieces to the right. Twist them the entire length of your hair.
Then, twist the 2 sections together in the opposite direction from how you twisted the individual pieces. Here, I twisted them together to the left.
Twist them together for the entire length of your ponytail.
Secure with your favorite hair tie. Voila, you have yourself a ponytail with a twist!
Do you have any tricks to keep your hair tamed during a workout? I would love for you to share!
