  • comb


  • small elastic hair bands


  • Separate the hair into two sections as if you were creating simple low pig tails and secure with an elastic.
  • Beginning on one side, add an additional elastic about two inches down.
  • Separate the hair between the two elastics to create a hole in the center with hair one either side, then tuck the pony tail through the hole and tighten the topsy tail by pulling up on the remaining hair in the ponytail.
  • To add texture, fullness and give it more of a messy, undone look, pinch and pull the hair that is secured between the two elastics before continuing.
  • Add a third elastic below your first topsy tail and repeat above to create your second topsy tail and continue depending on the length of your hair and how many fit.
  • Repeat on the other side.
  • Using a comb, back comb the ends to create more texture.
