How To: Bridal Folded Ponytaill
Posted on August 29 2022,
Your wedding day is a big deal, and I want you to feel as beautiful as possible.
One of my biggest tips that I recommend to all of my clients is to try a few different hair options out before the big day, so you really know which one you’ll feel the best in and which will compliment your wedding.
The folded ponytail is such a great option because it’s surprisingly not too challenging, and is something you can try for yourself before bringing to your stylist on the big day.
Follow along for an easy-to-achieve and elegant look!
Step 1: Use your wide tooth tail comb to create a centre part and a flat brush to smooth and detangle all of your hair.
Step 2: Use an edge brush and a bit of hairspray to smooth the flyaway you don’t want.
Step 3: If you’re hoping to change the texture of your hair, do so the way you normally would now.
Step 4: Use your aluminum non-marking clips to hold the front in place, and then create three sections in the back. The middle section should be the largest, with the two side sections being slightly smaller and the same size as one another. Use your non-marking clips again to hold these sections in place.
Step 5: Using a clear elastic, make a ponytail with your larger middle-back section, securing the elastic parallel to the base of your neck. Do the same with the two side-back sections. Take the pony-tail on the left and create a hollow, pulling the centre piece through. Then take those two ponytails, pulling them through and over to the right side. This will create an elegant overlap.
Step 6: Next, use a U-Pin and slide it through the base of a clear elastic in the back. Take a small piece of hair near the underside of your hair to wrap around the elastic to create a clean look. Wrap a few times for the best coverage. Create a loop and slide it through the U-Pin to hold everything securely in place. Remove any non-marking clips you still have in.
Step 7: Elevate and finalize the look with a touch of hairspray and for extra glamour, a single pearl bobby pin.
