1992 called, and it wants its pony back! This was my mom’s go-to hairstyle for me in elementary school, followed closely by the french braid. Of the two, this is the only one I can recreate on my own as a grown-up. Somehow my french braid always comes out crooked and weirdly… inside-out?

Check out Gal Meets Glam’s twisted ponytail post for simple instructions to recreate the throw-back yourself; no informercial “fashion hair tools” required.

    That’s so adorable! And I think everyone else here agrees(:

    The topsy tail! My friends and I used to wear our hair like that for soccer games and tennis meets. Isn’t it funny how the hairstyles from our childhood are slowly coming back? I see kids at school with side ponytails and scrunchies though I’m not embracing those styles myself. Hehe.

    • keiralennox 05/28/2013 at 8:11 am

      Haha, scrunchies are one trend I am not revisiting!! They conjure memories of noxema and neon leggings.

  • Rachel 05/22/2013 at 12:09 pm

    An absolutely GORGEOUS pony! Love it, you look so chic!

  • Megan 05/22/2013 at 9:14 am

    I remember doing my hair like that! It may be an older style, but I think it looks gorgeous with your long locks :) Very classic. And I want your dress!

  • kaikaisensei 05/22/2013 at 4:05 am

    Cute hair style. You pull of the pony tail in a way I could never do OTL
    Absolute adore.

  • Nikki Regalario 05/22/2013 at 3:30 am

    I like the simple yet fresh look! ^__^

  • buttonsandbirdcages 05/21/2013 at 9:46 pm

    Ahhhh topsy tails!!! How I miss the days!

  • Brynn 05/21/2013 at 9:28 pm

    Hahah, I totally did that all the time when I was little! I loved that it looked fancy but was really simple. I would do my American Girl Doll’s hair like that, too! :)

  • Pam 05/21/2013 at 9:12 pm

    I love you topsy tail !!! Bring back 1992 !!

  • taraallglorious 05/21/2013 at 8:25 pm

    No worries. :) I still wear my hair in that same pony too (when it’s grown out).

  • Emily (@SassyinSequins) 05/21/2013 at 6:59 pm

    Love it! So simple but so cute! I used to love the topsy tail when I was younger! Memories :)

    Love this dress very pretty. I love this hair style I often have my hair like this it’s simple to do and look really cute.

  • UnicornKim 05/21/2013 at 5:12 pm

    I love your dress! I heart Kohl’s and make as many cross-border trips (from Canada) as possible each year. I’m wearing a very similar outfit to yours today, but with leggings under my dress since the length is questionable for work. Mine is a combo of Target, Old Navy, and Loft with a Kate Spade bag:)

  • cjgal 05/21/2013 at 4:47 pm

    I remember I had a generic one called pony flip that came with an instructional video. I was obsessed!

    • keiralennox 05/21/2013 at 4:53 pm

      There just aren’t enough products that come with instructional videos these days, ya know? ;-)

  • Code Overdressed (@CodeOverdressed) 05/21/2013 at 4:40 pm

    I used to rock that hair style, it used to be my “princess hair” and I’d only take it to parties or holidays! You totally brought me back to 96. That dress is lovely!

    • keiralennox 05/21/2013 at 4:42 pm

      Ha, yes! Princess hair. I’m pretty sure it was Belle’s go-to coif in Beauty and the Beast. I love that you saved it for special occasions :)

  • lalovesblog 05/21/2013 at 4:39 pm

    OMG!! I totally remember the topsy tail tool…haha! Love it!
