When it comes to quick and easy hairstyles, it's clear that the ponytail is probably the most practical. A classic ponytail can be sculpted and styled into all kinds of different styles, like this chic twisted ponytail for example. This kind of style would be ideal for a job interview, a wedding, or basically anywhere you want to be seen with a polished, pretty ponytail.

This style is basically just a simple low ponytail, except it has a little 'twist' to it, which is easy to do once you know how...

1/ You'll need:

Bobby pins

Bristle brush

Fine-toothed comb

Strong hairspray

If you haven't got naturally straight hair, apply a heat protectant spray before using a flat iron to tame those locks and give yourself a smooth texture to work with. However, if you do have naturally straight hair to begin with, don't risk heat damage by using the flat iron, and go straight onto step one.

2/ Step one

To avoid any static build-up, use a boar bristle brush, and get rid of any tangles.

3/ Step two

Using the comb, separate the bottom section of your hair and tie it in a low ponytail. Take the remaining hair and divide it into three sections.

4/ Step three

If you're after some more volume, tease your hair gently at the sides (although make sure you tease it without damaging the follicles.) Twist the section on the left side and pin it to your ponytail using bobby pins. Repeat with the section on the right side.

5/ Step four

Complete your look with some strong hold hairspray to keep your style in place, and you're finished!
