It’s been spotted on major celebs over the past years like Beyonce, Gigi Hadid and Blake Lively, and now, Instagrammers are taking it up a notch.
Ditch your boring ponytail and add a twist to it – literally. A braided high tail is the latest ‘do trending, and you have to try it if you haven’t already. Our fav Instagram influencers have been spotted wearing the look to glamorous events, as well as low key days in their sweats. Whether you wear it dressed up or down, it creates a focal point and effortlessly takes your outfit up a notch and gives you an edgy style we are all dreaming of.
The popular look is just in time for music festival season, and we can guarantee it’ll be spotted all over some of our favorites like Lollapooloza. If you don’t have enough hair to create the look, we totally recommend grabbing some extensions so you can shock the style world with your locks that trendsetters everywhere are slicking back and up.
Ready for the look? Here’s how to do it.
Slick all your hair back into a high ponytail and secure with an rubber band.
If you want to hide your band, wrap a small piece of hair around and secure with bobby pin.
Split your pony into two and twist each section to the right.
Cross the right section of hair over the left section to begin forming the rope twist braid.
Keep twisting the sections to the right and wrapping them to the left then secure the end with an rubber band.
Finally, slick it back with oil or hairspray and get to IG ASAP!
