Triple Twistback Side Ponytail | Easy Hairstyles

So my girls have totally been into ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ (SYTYCD) lately and I noticed that for the first few weeks the girls were sporting different variations of twistback hairstyles.  Twistbacks are easy to do, so I thought I would feature one that I saw the most on the show, as it is super cute and easy to do.  Here it is…

This hairstyle can be used on little girls, tweens, and teens. Even moms can use this hairdo! The style is particularly fun, because you can incorporate hair twistbacks any way (and quantity) you desire. {Be mindful, that thin hair will make the twists look very skinny, so you may only opt for one twistback per side. Using Pomade on the twisted strands will help you reduce fly-aways, too.}

As always, in hairstyles like this, if your daughter cannot hold the hair twists for you… feel free to use a gator clip or something to hold them.

  4. Hi Mindy,

    Your oldest twin daughters look a lot like Kayla from desperate Housewives. She plays Tom Scavo’s daughter from a different woman not Lynette. The actress’ name is Rachel Fox. Check it out! Byee x

  5. Love the twist look! Especially for my “tween” only I want to know what kind of pomade you use? Your girls look like they have the same thickness and texture as my girlie. Thanks for all the inspiration!

  6. I LOVE your videos! thanks SO much for the helpful tip about fixing your own hair. I’ve tried to fix my own hair, but had trouble. Thanks so much1 Now I’ll have to try again. I wondered if you could do a video showing how to tell where your natural part falls. I REALLY would like to know.
