Here's a very simple idea that adds a nice look to a normal ponytail. I've seen some different variations on this all over Pinterest and I thought it would be fun to try.
Simply start with a regular ponytail. Now have some small elastics on hand because you will need the as you go. Grab a thin section of hair from the back of the ponytail and bring it around left side of the ponytail and across the front.
Twist it and have it drape just a bit. Now grab a small section of hair from the right side of the ponytail and combine the two with an elastic. Grab another small section from behind the ponytail and bring it around the front as well - twisting as you go.
Have it drape just a bit below your previous strand and then add it into that same section from your right side with an elastic. (About 1/2 inch below your first elastic.) Continue this pattern all the way down the ponytail and then add one final elastic around the entire bottom of the pony to end it. Add in some cute hair clips and you're finished! Easy Peasy!
