Upgrade Your Ponytail: The Double Wrap Topsy Tail Tutorial

Hello there! My name is Jennie Kay from and I am back to share yet another super easy (and fast!) way to turn your everyday ponytail into something a little more special. Anyone remember the topsy tail? I know I know, it may sound a little retro, but this double wrap topsy tail tutorial takes an old school ponytail and quickly morphs it into a super trendy look that is guaranteed to turn some heads! This pony style works just as well for the office as it does for a day at the pool. Let’s get started, shall we?

What You Need:

– a hairbrush

– a comb

– two clear hair elastics

– a few bobby pins

– your favorite soft hold aerosol hairspray

– a smoothing pomade (optional)

Step 1 Using a brush, smooth hair into a ponytail at the mid to bottom of your neck and secure with a small rubber elastic.

Step 2 Take a small section of hair from the ponytail (about 1/2-inch thick) and pull it aside.

Step 3 Wrap that section of hair around the ponytail to camouflage the elastic and secure with a bobby pin. Spritz the hair in the ponytail with an aerosol hairspray (or smoothing pomade) and comb through to smooth the ponytail.

Step 4 Using an additional small elastic, secure it midway down the shaft of the ponytail.

Step 5 Spread apart the section within the elastics into two. Flip the bottom of the tail up and through the opening.

Step 6 Repeat step 4 again.

Step 7 Repeat step 5 again. Spritz the entire style with an aerosol hairspray to smooth fly aways or frizz.
