BeautyLuLu*s How-To: Topsy Ponytail Hair Tutorial

We’re turning your everyday ponytail on its head with this week’s Topsy Ponytail Hair Tutorial! We love how this look mimics the classic look of a french braid but with half the hassle! Take a peek at our tutorial below for tips on how to achieve this fun style!

Topsy Ponytail

Steps:

- Begin by creating three evenly spaced ponytails and securing with small elastic hair-ties.

- Starting from the top, slide each hair-tie slightly away from your head to make room for the topsy.

- Next, create a hole behind the top hair-tie and flip the pony up, then down through the hole.

- Continue by combining the top and middle ponytails together (repeating the previous step for the 2nd and 3rd topsy).

- Complete the look by tightening or loosening each section to your preference!

Note: The topsy ponytails should hide the elastic hair-ties but use bobby-pins as needed.

CelebrityCrush of the Week: Chris Pratt!

Chris Pratt

2014 has officially become the year of Pratt. If you didn’t already love him as the oh-so-adorable Andy Dwyer on Parks & Recreation, there is NO doubt that you are positively drooling over Chris Pratt as Star-Lord in the summer blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy! This lovable actor takes charm to another level and has become a household name in recent months, taking the helm of one of the most highly-regarded comic book movies! And next year is going to find him as the lead in the much-anticipated Jurassic World, which means a lot more eye candy in our future! So there you have it, LuLu*s loves. Enjoy your weekend with a little bit of Chris Pratt on the brain!
