So you say you can’t french braid, eh? Well, I’ll let it slide with the caveat that it’s worth learning. This how-to post includes step-by-step instructions. In the meantime, you can cheat a bit and get a similar look using a topsy tail tool. You can pick up a kit like this one from Conair fairly inexpensively or make one with this simple DIY tutorial. The technique is simple; the tool helps feed the ponytail through its base to flip it under while twisting the sides into slight V-shape. When you repeat this step down a length of hair, the final style looks similar to a braided style without any actual braiding. In fact, this loose, pretty bohemian-inspired style is so quick and easy to create, you might swap it out for your bad-hair-day-ponytail!

If you like the way the style looks with the elastics in, feel free to skip this step. I like to remove them using a small pair of scissors to create a looser style. Carefully cut and remove all bands except the last one.
