Swept Up, Slicked Back and Twisted, Too!

This fast, easy and stylish twisted ponytail is ideal for those oh-so-hectic mornings.

Mornings can be anything but calm, especially on the weekdays. Sometimes there are only a few precious moments you can spend on yourself. That’s why spending a lot of time on a hairstyle is not happening. We get it.

Ponytails? Now those are totally doable! They’re a classic go-to ‘do that’s swept up and out of the way. But here we’ve literally taken a twist on your standard, slicked-back ponytail. This simple, super fast ponytail-meets-twisted braid is really easy to pull off in just a few minutes, and you’ll look ready to tackle anything and everything.

What You’ll Need

Two hair ties

Bobby pins

Pantene ProV Stylers Hairspray (optional)


  1. Pull your hair back into a standard ponytail – it doesn’t matter if it’s high, low, in the middle or to the side, but we recommend the height that gives you the longest ponytail to work with. Secure your pony with a hair tie

  1. Take a small section of hair from the underside of your ponytail. Twist the section and then wrap it around your hair tie and secure with a bobby pin
  2. Split your ponytail into two equal sections. Begin twisting each section

Tip: For a fuller look, gently tug on the twisted section to loosen it up a bit. We love an undone look, but if you want something more sleek, smooth away flyaways with hair spray.
