Hair inspiration

I thought this was a pretty cool detail on a ponytail.
My plan was to use this at the beginning, and then braid it in a seven-stranded braid. According to my calculations, the small "neck" portion would be about 2/5th of my hair, so the ponytail part should be easily split into five.

Off to a good start with the detail! It did get a bit loose/messy in one side, but that can be fixed with some practice.

Of course my mirror was right in the middle of it. Argh.
I'm not entirely sure what to think.

The positive: It has a fairly nice "lift" effect to keep the braid off my neck, it was fairly easy to do and felt really "firm" and secure.
The negative: I got some messiness from using the hair-lassoo and I screwed the seven-stranded braid up. Somehow along the line I managed to turn it into a five-stranded.

Notes for next time: Get the beginning part smooth and nice. Definitely braid it into a seven-stranded braid, just because it feels cooler.


  1. It's lovely! Thank you for educating and inspiring beautiful long hair! ♥

  2. The detail is pretty cool indeed! I'd like to try it (unfortunately my mane is not so long as to try the rest of the trick ;) ) but I don't really understand stage 7... What goes where??
    Otherwise, I've been following your blog for some time now, great posts, keep going!

    1. Honest answer? I have no idea.
      I think it has something do to with tucking in the detail-part because it's suddenly gone in picture 8. But I just don't think it makes a lot of sense with the placement of the tool or anything! So your guess is as good as mine XD
      And thank you very much!
