Try a cool retro look with a twist. The double wrap topsy tail is creating a simple ponytail and adding flair to it. The trendy look is easy to create in minutes.

"This pony style works just as well for the office as it does for a day at the pool", explains Latest-Hairstyles.com contributor Jennie Kay.

What you need:

- hairbrush

- comb

- two clear hair elastics

- few bobby pins

- your favorite soft hold aerosol hairspray

- 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.
