Elastic Wrap Around Tutorial

Learn a neat trick to hide your elastic with a hair wrap.  A hair trick everyone should have in their repertoire! It is a classic look that can really polish off a hairstyle. All you need is a couple hair pins!

STEPS:
1.  Take a hairpin and push the top of the hairpin right under the elastic.
2.  Take small amount of hair from the back side of your of your ponytail and wrap it tightly around the elastic, crossing over the hairpin. 
3.  Hold the hair tight and leave a small amount of hair sticking out.
4. Next use a bobbi pin and push onto the end of the hair and thread through the hair pin. 
5. Once the hair is threaded through, hold onto the excess hair sticking out and push the hairpin down and all the way out the bottom. 

In the end you are left with no pins and one hidden elastic!

 

Topsy Tail Twist Upstyle

Remember topsy tails!? I bet you never thought you'd do your hair like that again but we think you'll change your mind after watching this tutorial!

Seriously though, this is probably one of our easiest tutorials yet and it is so chic and simple! Bonus it might bring back some middle school memories ;) 

1. Revive hair with Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo.
2. Gather hair into a loose low ponytail with an elastic.
3. Use your fingers and separate the hair into two sections above the elastic to make an opening. 
4. Tuck the ponytail up and pull it through the opening to create a ‘topsy tail’
5. For a looser look, pull the twisted sections out a bit.
6. Loop the ponytail into the topsy tail opening until it is all tucked away and secure with bobby pins.
7. Be sure to pin any other loose pieces and spray with Aveda Control Force hairspray.
