I have two go-to hairstyles: loose and wavy, and messy top knot. I pin hair tutorials like it’s my job, but I never make an effort to try anything new. Like, ever.

So let’s not get crazy and call this a resolution, but I’m hoping to mix up my mane now and then, master a few [easy] styles, and maybe share them on the blog in a completely random and noncommittal series, aptly named after the Pinterest board that houses all my good hair inspiration.

Kicking things of with the easiest of ‘dos: the throwback topsy tail, made modern with a little mess.

You can find simple instructions for this classic pony on Gal Meets Glam.  I sprayed mine with Lush Sea Spray for texture, then teased the pony a bit with a boar bristle round brush for extra volume. To finish the front, I quickly curled any fallen pieces away from my face with a 1.5″ curling iron, and gave it all a good spray with Elnett satin hairspray for all-day hold.

Next time, I’ll give the crown a good back combing for an extra boost before I pull my hair into the pony.

  • ellies_vintage 01/03/2014 at 3:11 pm

    OH! I was testing this on my sister yesterday. It ended up looking messy, but not the cool kind.

  • ClassyinClass 01/03/2014 at 2:31 pm

    Ugh, I do the same thing. I’ve let my hair grow out and don’t do a dang thing with it but let it flow or throw it up in a bun. Have you ever looked at The Small Things Blog? Her hair tutorials are to die for. It’s sick.

  • justaddtea 01/03/2014 at 2:22 pm

    Very pretty! If you find anything good for super curly hair, let me know. :)
