  • How To Turn A Ponytail Into A Swept-Up Up-Do Hairstyle

    Skill Level : If I can do it, so can you!
    .
    I sometimes like to wear my hair up off my face and neck, but I don't always want to have a plain, boring ponytail.
    .
    This tutorial shows you a really quick and easy way to turn a ponytail into a swept-up "up-do" hairstyle in seconds.
    .
    You will need :
    .
    Hair long enough to put up into a ponytail
    A hair elastic - preferably the same colour as your hair
    It also helps if your hair isn't squeaky clean, so here's your excuse to not wash your hair today!
    .
    Step 1.
    .
    Brush your hair into an ordinary ponytail. Make sure to have the hair elastic on quite tight round the ponytail ... wrap it round once more than feels comfortable because you will be loosening it in the next step.
    .


    .
    Step 2.
    .
    Pull the hair elastic down the ponytail (away from your scalp) a fraction ... not too much.
    .

    .

    Step 3.
    .
    Work your fingers into the space you've created (next to your scalp) and create a little 'pocket'
    .

    .

    .
    Step 4.
    .
    Fold the swinging end of your ponytail up into the pocket, tucking in all the ends as you go.
    .


    .

    .

    Step 5.
    .

    .

    That's it! If you have extra-thick hair (lucky you!) you may want to poke a few hair-grips into the sides for extra hold.
    .
    I often wear my hair like this and it will last in this style all day.
    .


    .
    For variation, you can poke your fingers all the way through the pocket and push the ponytail all the way through and back out the bottom.
    .
    I have no idea if there is a real name for this hair-style, I discovered it myself by playing with my hair during too many boring meetings at work many, many years ago!

          Thanks for the hair-style tip, I've just tried it and it looks great, it feels really secure too so I'd be confident wearing it at work all day.

            Oooh, I want photos!

            I'm glad it was worth me standing out in my garden taking about 1,000 pictures of the back of my head!

            Gawd-knows what the neighbours thought I was doing!

              I think I'd need that my hair is probably too thick and fluffy...!

                Have you tried?
                If you can get it in a pony-tail and make a pocket, you can just shove it all in there!

                  I've been sitting here trying. I think maybe I should probably do it with wet hair when it is less fluffy and unruly. I hate my hair for it's fluffiness (sorry, some people call it natural curliness and think its nice!!)

                    Here you go JBJB, the photo you asked for. I think it looks really good for a two minute job . I'm definitely going to wear it like this for work. Thanks for the idea.

                        How cool is that?!

                        I've made somebody change how they look for the day!

                        Just call me Gok


                        I might have to look into those pony-tail gizmo things.
                        I've been growing my hair for a year now and I'm determined not to get it cut yet, so anything that means I can shove it out the way is great in my book!
