Modern, Twisted Ponytail Wedding Hair

Postmodern Ponytail

"This reverse French twist is an avant-garde update of the classic summer ponytail. The mini-veil is light and modern—just the thing for a steamy summer wedding."

Get the Look: Holding hair in a loose ponytail about four inches away from your head, twirl it downward into a reverse French twist. The key to creating this airy look is to keep the hair messy, so don't worry about flyaway strands. Secure the seam and the base of the ponytail with pins, leaving the ends long and loose. Attach a mini-veil for a soft, romantic flourish.
