Gather the hair above your ears from both sides of your face.

Step 2

Twist your hair slightly in the back and secure with a bobby pin, placing the pin vertically so it pins up into your hair.

Step 3

Pull all your hair into a low ponytail and start twisting. Twist the whole ponytail with one hand, then grab the twist halfway down with the index finger of your other hand. Use this finger to loop the ponytail so it snakes around itself.

Step 4

Pin in place and spray to secure. If you want some volume at the front, use the handle of a teasing comb or eye shadow brush to lift and loosen your hair.
