If you haven’t been able to tell by now, I am extremely low maintenance when it comes to hair. My hair is air-dried 90% of the time, with the exception of the occasional curly or wavy moment. So if I’m ever going to do an updo, it’s going to be something that’s basic and easy – absolutely essential! This twisted low ponytail tutorial will literally take you all of 3 minutes but offer a touch of elegance that’s perfect for a night out or the office – catch it after the break!

With a boar bristle brush, just do a quick tease around the crown – just do a few pieces to add some extra volume!

Using the same brush, lightly smooth down the teased sections.

Gently pull hair back into a low ponytail.

Secure your ponytail with an elastic band that matches your hair colour.

Loosen the pony and create an opening above the ponytail.

Flip the ponytail toward the nape of your neck and pull it through the opening you created.

Rough up the twisted area and then loosen some pieces around your face.

Lightly spritz with hairspray – using my favourite John Frieda hairspray here!

    What, your hair is usually air-dried?!! Mine is an event, honestly, it takes up a whole night. Blow dry, (takes forever, my hair absorbs a ton of water), serum, serum, then straighten/add a few waves! Haha, sorry had to vent there. Love this tutorial though and will absolutely be giving it a try!! xoxo
