At Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris, there are all kinds of hairstyle marvels to enjoy, like this cute, twisted ponytail! If you're looking for the perfect day to night hairstyle, or just want to update your go-to pony, this could be style you've been waiting for!

How to style it

Step 1
This is a great day two hairstyle, so before styling, spray your roots with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Blow Out LongWear Spray. The dry shampoo formula will absorb any excess oil and help to freshen your mane.

Step 2
Brush it back and use your fingers to separate the body into three equal sections. Take the middle section and gather it into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck, then secure it with a hair elastic.

Step 3
Twist the two outer sections away from your face. Make each twist as tight as possible, so they don't become too loose later in the day.

Step 4
Wrap the two outer sections over the top of the ponytail and around the base to create the twisted look.

Step 5
Secure the twists with as many pins as you need for the style to feel secure. This all depends on the thickness of your hair, and you may find that U pins are easier to work with than regular bobby pins.

Step 6
Finish with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray for a glossy finish that will last well into the evening.

You can accessorize this style with ribbons and headbands if you want to, or just let the twisted detail speak for itself. It's completely up to you!
