DIY: Embellished Side Ponytail


This week I'm showing you my favorite ways to wear the floral pin I created with the DIY: Floral Pin Tutorial.

Today's tutorial shows you how to style the pin in an embellished side pony.  




HERE'S THE HOW TO:

1.  Create a floral hair clip using the DIY: Floral Hair Clip tutorial.

2.  Pull your hair into a side ponytail.

3.  Topsy-turvy your ponytail 1980s style by splitting your hair above the hair elastic and pulling the ponytail down and through the part you created.  This creates the pretty twisted effect on each side of the ponytail. 

Not a child of the 80's?  Click this link for a topsy turvy tutorial. (Although, if enough of you click the link, I'm gonna start to feel old.... ha!) ;)

4.  Clip the floral hair clip you created to the side of the topsy-turveyed ponytail closest to your face.  And viola!  Such a pretty and simple hairstyle.


If you liked this tutorial, you'll also enjoy the other ones I've covered this week.  Check them out here:


Be sure to stop by tomorrow for my next tutorial.  See you then!  :)

      I bet your girls would love this style. It is so simple to do and even looks pretty without the flower embellishment.

    1. Thanks Stephanie!

      I loved the chocolate olive oil cupcakes on your blog. They are perfect because there aren't any eggs involved and I can pig out on the batter. Yum!

      Also, I'm wondering, what does Salvie do with his lovely locks to get them out of the way in summertime?!! ;)

  12. Hi Erica, thanks for stopping by my blog. I am loving these hair style posts. My hairs is long and I usually just plait it or put it in a ponytail, but your posts are inspiring me to make more effort! I especially like the hairband.
