The Barbie ponytail is a style which will guarantee to bring out your love for pink & pretty things, and will undoubtedly put you in the girliest of moods. This fabulous hairstyle provides a glamorous yet elegant spin on the traditional pony, adding a touch of class to create a really charming & feminine look.
This style works perfectly for those with long, luscious locks; don’t worry if you sport a shorter cut, adding extensions and hair pieces can help create the same look!
Firstly, part your hair to the middle or side dependent on how you’d like to wear it. Make a diagonal section starting at your parting, and going down in front of your ear – clip this piece of hair aside and save it for later. Take the hair in your crown area and gently backcomb; this will create volume and lift. Smooth over your hair with a fine comb, and pull all your hair (except the part that you’ve clipped aside) into a high, secure ponytail.
Next, take out the front section. Take one side and drape it over the pony tail, wrapping the hair around your bobble and securing it underneath with a bobby pin. Repeat the same for the other side of your hair, again securing with a bobby pin.
Using wide barrel tongs, curl your hair at the back, either curling all your hair in the same direction to create a tidier look, or curling your hair in different directions if you want to create a natural look. Use a comb to separate the curls or a large brush which will tease out the curls so they’re not as tight, and give the hair more bounce and volume.
Use a hand mirror to check the back of your hair is how you like, and use bobby pins to tidy any stray hairs Finally, give it a once over with a strong holding hairspray and enjoy your lovely Barbie ponytail style!
