A 5 Minute Updo Perfect For Holiday Parties

With the first of the holidays fast approaching (Thursday, oomggg) it's time to plan our corresponding looks. I'm not usually one to try something new where my hair is concerned (hell, it's taken me years to even attempt to grow it from my usual shoulder-grazing length), but I've been loving easy, low-placed ponytails lately. Consider this the chicer version of exactly that. Here's how to do it...

Step 1: Arrange your hair into a low ponytail, as you usually would, and secure with a thin elastic.

Step 2: Place your fingers above the elastic and separate the hair into two sections without loosening the hair too much. Then take the ponytail, lift it up and pull the hair through the gap between the two sections of hair you just created. 

Step 3: Depending on the length of your hair, you can repeat this again and again. My hair length looks best when this is done twice. How did you it? Just move down the ponytail a few inches and secure another elastic, then repeat step 2 completely for a loose, easy updo perfect for holiday parties. 

Best of all...this hairstyle looks amazing loosened, so as it falls, just leave it be!
