How to Do a Structured Loop Ponytail

Learn how to do a structured loop ponytail from John Barrett Salon hair artist Dhiran Mistry in this Howcast video.


Dhiran Mistry: Hi everybody my names Dhiran Mistry and I work at the John Barrett Salon and today we are here with Andrea. So, I am going to start off with a more structured look. So, as you can see we have got just a nice clean ponytail and a great, great head of hair. With a little bit of curl in it all ready.

Okay, so what I am going to do is, I am just going to wrap the hair around my hand. Just to keep a much more structured look, and then I am just going to grab a couple of clips to hold it in place. So, the clips as you can see are just holding the ponytail in a kind of loop, keeping that nice round structured look. Once, I have sprayed it down this will just help the hair stay in place.

Now, I am just going to use some bobby pins and just place them inside. Using the hair that has already been pulled back as a base to hold the bobby pins in place. I am going to put some bobby pins on either side of this, of this loop.

As I do it, I am going to start to take out these clips. The clips are really just there to give you a guide and to hold everything in place while she replaced them with bobby pins. Little bit more spray. And there you have it, you have a much more structured look that just started off as a ponytail.
