DIY: Topsy Turvy Ponytail

Ready for an ’80s flashback? Here’s a refresher on how to create the iconic topsy turvy ponytail, and give it a romantic spin. I like styling this look off to the side as it gives it a modern twist.


Put your hair into a side ponytail. Use an elastic in a color that will blend in with your hair.

Part your hair above the ponytail to create a space to pull your hair through.

Lift your ponytail up and pull it down and through the part you created.

Pull your ponytail all the way through. I like to keep it loose and a little messy for a more natural look. It should now look like this:

If you’d like, add an embellishment to the style, such as the Flower Hair Clip.

I love this hairstyle because it only takes a few seconds to pull together and the result is simply lovely.
