Twisted Ponytail~ A Hair Tutorial!


Clara from Clara's Craft Corner requested a hairstyle tutorial on my 'Request A Post' page. You can also request a post by going to that page and commenting your request!

I will be showing you how to do the Twisted Ponytail.

It is a very simple hairstyle. It is best on a doll with medium to long hair. My model today will be Katniss. 

Let's get started!

You will need: 

  • An AG hairbrush
  • A ponytail holder
  • A doll with medium to long hair
  • A salon chair(optional)

First, brush your doll's hair out. This is so it isn't knotty and hard to work with.

Collect your dolls hair into a pony-tail. You will want it to be a low ponytail(against her back) for it to lay right.

Put the pony-tail holder in. It should be a low ponytail right now.

Use your fingers and slide the ponytail holder down just a little bit. Separate the hair in 2 right above the ponytail holder as shown in the picture above.

Take the pony-tail and flip it through the "hole" you made above the ponytail holder. The picture is showing you in the middle of the process.

Push the pony-tail holder up a little bit so the twist is tight. There you go! You just did the Twisted Ponytail! 

Here are some more pictures of Katniss with her Twisted Ponytail.

Here is the back when she is standing up.

Here is a side-view when she is standing up.

Here is how it looks in the front. Katniss has bangs so not all dolls will look like that in front.

If you do it on your doll, send me a picture! I would love to see the hairstyle on your doll(s)! Send me an email at Even if I only get 1 photo, I will share it. 

What do you think of the hairstyle? Did you do it on your doll? Did you think it was simple? 

Thank you for reading (and doing it in your doll's hair)!
