Do you only have five minutes to spare? Put your hair in a twisted ponytail half updo and look chic in a snap. Here’s how. 

If you’ve already explored all types of ponytails and braids, it’s time to experiment with half updos. When it comes to this type of hairstyle, a half ponytail isn’t your only option. You have your half up half down with braid. Even a loop braid is a pretty choice. Now, we’re going to teach you another half up hairstyle: the twisted ponytail half updo. This can work for long and medium-length hair, so if you have a shoulder-length bob or a lob, give the twisted ponytail half updo a try. Here’s how to create it.

Take from the side

Get a small section of hair from the left and right side of your face. Put these sections in front of your ears to separate them from the rest.

Tie at the back

Take a small section from the left and right side of your hair behind your ears. Tie these sections at the back of your head with an elastic.

Get wrappin'

Now, it’s time to deal with the sections of hair you left in front of your ears. Take the right part and wrap it around the right side of the section you tied earlier. Secure with a pin. Do the same for the left part.

Pin it

Continue until all the strands that you left in front of your hair have been wrapped and twisted at the back. Make sure that you also wrap hair around the elastic. Then, secure with bobby pins.

Fight frizz

Spritz TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray when you’re done creating the twisted half updo. The hairspray will help get rid of frizz. Then, make your hairstyle sleek by patting your hair with a smooth fabric like a handkerchief or bandana.
