Sometimes I find it hard to style shorter hair, and I always get asked about that. This is a great idea that is super easy and works on most hair types.
Put the hair behind your ears in a low ponytail and secure using an elastic. You’ll leave both sections from the front/sides out. If your hair is really thick , be careful not to use too big sections from the front, as they will be harder to conceal.
Take both side sections and twist them into a half knot.
Now take those two pieces and wrap them around the ponytail and under.
Use small/strong bobby pins to secure the remaining pieces under the ponytail. We kind of “stuffed” the longer bits up underneath the base of the ponytail before bobby pinning.
For this look I used the smallest ghd curling wand to make the style a little more messy. But this works great with straight hair as well. If you choose to leave it straight its important to be more careful when making the ponytail as it will look better with less fly aways.
Finish off with hair spray.
