A simple ponytail may be the go-to hairstyle of a lot of women. After all, it’s easy and practical. Its versatility also makes it a great starting point for a lot of hairstyles. From a basic ponytail, you can upgrade it to an elegant or a more sophisticated one with just a few tweaks. In this tutorial, TRESetter Martine Cajucom and professional hairstylist Lourd Ramos show you how you can create a chic twisted ponytail that you can wear to parties, dinner dates, or when you simply want to look a bit more glamorous for the day.

Step 2

Protect from heat

When your hair has dried, spritz TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray on your hair. The spray acts as a barrier between your hair and styling tools to prevent heat damage. Make sure that you spray the product evenly on your hair.

Step 3

Separate hair into sections

Create a side part. Then, separate hair into three sections: one on each side and one at the back. Clip the sections on the side so they stay in place as you work on the back section.

Step 4

Tie your hair

Put the back section of your hair into a ponytail. Make sure that your ponytail sits at the center of the back of your head; not too high and not too low. Tie your hair with an elastic.

Then, take a small section of hair from this ponytai, spritz TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hairspray to fight frizz and give hair a bit of grip, and wrap the small section of hair around the elastic. Secure with a bobby pin.

Do the twist

Remove the clip from the either the left or right section of your hair. Twist this section and wrap it around the base of your ponytail. Then, lock into place using bobby pins. Do the same for the other clipped section of hair.
