Welcome back to another edition of
I need a better camera Hair We Go! Today we were a little pressed for time, so I thought we would try a tutorial I’ve seen floating around for a while. Some people call it “faking a long ponytail” or “the double pony tail trick”. What ever makes you happy.
Being that Pixie has such curly hair, her hair often looks a lot shorter than it really is. You wet that head and her hair goes down between her shoulder blades, but once it dries, it’s more like a bob. Regardless, I’d kill for her curls. Typically, her ponty tails are tiny, curly and adorable. I’ve actually had people ask if I curl her hair. I should have really taken a picture of a typical Pixie pony so I could show you, but I’m a terrible blogger and who has forethought these days?
So any way, let me show you how it turned out.
I need to start by pointing out the obvious, that weird part on the side of her head makes me crazy! If I had more time, I would definitely play around with it and see if I couldn’t get rid of that obvious part that screams “Secret ponytail isn’t so secret!” I had tried this hairstyle on myself and ran into the same problem. I definitely think it has a lot to do with my lack of hair skills.
All in all, this hair style is stupid easy and incredible satisfying. Pixie’s ponytail has easily doubled in length and looks great (aside from that PART!). I would absolutely do this with my own hair as well. I would show you, but taking pictures of the back of my own head was super difficult and no one wants to see the lame attempt I made.
Here’s a simple tutorial from makeup.com so you can try on your own!
Let me know what you think!
