ponytail curl

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to figure out my BM hair for the next wedding i'm in. My hair will be really long by then. I want to wear it up & fix it myself. It's a casual outdoor wedding.

 

I want to do a high ponytail & curl it into one big spiral curl.

 

this is the closest picture i can find

I don't want lots of curls. Just one big twist.

 

How do you do that? I tried with a curling iron & straightener but it's too much hair to put in at once.

i do it almost every day! i put my hair in a bun until it's almost dry and then let it out. it looks just like that! i also twist it a lot once it's down to keep it spiraled.

What you can do is curl it in pieces first because it's not going to work all at once. Then take it in bigger sections and go over it with the flat iron in the same type of curl that you want it, then gradually shape the curl into one. I do it all the time when I wear a ponytail piece in the summer time.

Make sense?

yes, that makes sense. I'll try it this way if lauren's super easy method doesn't work for me.

morgan, what i do is either use curlers or a curling iron, medium size barrell, like 1 inch or 1 1/2 inch.

 

if you use curlers, make sure to roll all the chunks into the same direction and pin facing the same way. you can do the overnight spongy kind on wet hair, then blow dry before removing in the morning, OR the hot rollers. oh also make sure the rollers are vertical, NOT horizontal. you want them to be pined in the same direction the spiral will hang, up and down :)

 

either way, once you remove the curlers, dont shake out your hair. put it in a pony right away with a nice tight rubberband, then twirl your hair with your whole hand in the direction of the curl. it ends up looking like a cindy brady spiral ponytail!

 

after i do that i also take a small section of hair from the under-middle part of the ponytail and wrap it around the rubberband a few times, then push the tail of the strand up and back into the underside of the base of the pony using a short, tight bobby pin, it looks really cute and polished!

yes, I planned on doing the little wrap around the pony tail.

 

My hair is wet & in a bun as I type. I'm going to try the other ways this weekend. I had to start with the easiest.

that was me when i was little, morgan...only w/ brown hair...and no bangs. come to think of it, the only similar thing is the pigtails. make sure that when you do/did the bun, you twist as you wrap around.

If I were trying to create that, I would do exactly what Abbie said, but I'd def use hot rollers (after a blowdrying -- just looks better). Sounds cute!
