Hair Tutorial: Pony with The Double Wrap Topsy Tail

Here’s a throwback to the topsy tail that takes an old school ponytail and quickly morphs it into a super trendy look. According to guest contributor Jennie Kay, this pony style works just as well for the office as it does for a day at the pool.

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 flyaways or frizz.
