There are soooo many ways to add a little umph to a regular ponytail, and with it being summer time, it is nice to have all that hair off of her neck. I thought I would dedicate a few posts just to ponytails and how to add a little umph to them. Starting with.....Fishbone/tail. I am not exactly sure what the real name is, but we use both terms at our house.

This works best if the hair is damp.

-After you get the ponytail in, separate the hair into 2 sections.
-Take a small section of hair from the right side of the right section and cross it over to the left section.
-Take a small section of hair from the left side of the left section and cross it over to the right section.
-Keep going until you are at the end of the ponytail!

This will actually take awhile. This particular day, it took me about 10 minutes.

I will also do a tutorial on this do!

I love ponytails with a twist! Thanks for thinking of that. I may try this one, but I'm afraid my gal's hair is too short...and her attention span is too short.

Oh, you are patient! I can't stand doing fishtails. I am too neurotic and get too many flyaways. Whenever I see little girls with them I always think "Their mom is super patient".

She is such a pretty girl!

I have a question...I tried this and I ended up with two sections? When you cross over to the other side do you combine the piece you are going to take over with the piece from last time? I don't know if that makes sense...I just ended up with a mess and could not figure out how it all stays together.
