The Flip Tail Pony is one of our all-time favorite hairstyles. And while it looks complicated—and like you need two sets of hands—trust us, it’s a cinch to master. Four fast steps, five minutes tops. Check out the how-to from Cozy’s best-selling book: Cozy’s Complete Guide To Girl’s Hair.
To recreate these hairstyles don’t forget a comb or a brush and hair tie.
First, starting with dry hair, comb or brush the hair to smooth and detangle it.
Then, gather the hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck and secure it with a hair tie. Then push the elastic down slightly to leave 2 or 3 inches of hair above it.
Next, using your pointer and middle fingers, make a “hole” in the middle of the hair above the hair tie. With your other hand, flip the end of the pony under and up through the hole.
Finally, slowly pull the pony through. If the ponytail sticks out from the head too much, gently pull the hair tie down farther to relax the style. Brush the ends of the flip tail smooth.
There you have it. Four easy steps to mastering a cute ponytail style that is natural, fun and fuss-free.
