While reading my Spring Issue of Larme Magazine, I noticed a lot of hair styles incorporating this one easy tuck element to a simple pony tail to create elegant and textured hair styles that give a new twist to old staple hair styles. I've actually used this technique before last year, but it's been a pretty well used styling technique in magazines this year, but even more so for spring and summer hair styles.
The first look will be a new take on twin tails/ pig tails.
You will need 4 elastic hair ties.
Optional, 2 ribbons.
You will pull the pony tail up, and through the part and tuck it though.
Simple as that.
Then, repeat to the other side.
You can finish off the look with some ribbons to conceal the bottom elastic band.
Now, you've seen the method of tucking your pony tails, we'll be doing the same thing but with two other different hair styles
The next is a half up/half down hair style.
You will need 3 hair elastics.
Optional, 1 ribbon.
I made a small diagram of the section parts of hair you will be using. The first pony tail should be using hair from the first section.
This step is easier since the hair is already parted.
Just bring the hair in the remaining pony tail up and over the hair elastic, tucking it.
Again, since the hair is parted, bring the remaining pony tail up, over, the elastic tie.
And, easy as 1,2,3, the hair style is done!
You can then add a ribbon at the bottom of the last pony tail.
Then, it's done. The hair style is actually my favourite, it looks so textured and effortlessly pretty and has so much volume.
The third style is a textured pony tail.
You will only need 2 hair elastics this time.
Optional, 1 ribbon.
Then, using the same tucking technique like the past looks, tuck the pony tail though.
After you have all your hair in the elastic, part the hair above the hair tie like before, and pull the remaining pony tail up and through, to tuck it neatly.
You can finish by tying a ribbon at the end if you feel like it.
The look is a sweet and yet voluminous pony tail with some added texture to give the pony tail some personality.
These three styles, though are simple basics, are given some new flair with the addition of one simple technique. They're a fun new way to wear your hair when the weather starts getting warmer and can really dress up a look.
