m&t in the press | once wed | DIY tousled layered ponytail

It was a lot of fun collaborating with Emily of Once Wed on this Tousled Layered ponytail. Full feature on Once Wed.

Tousled Layered Ponytail

1. Divide hair into two parts (top half and bottom half).

2. Tie lower part into ponytail.

3. Loosen top portion of hair, select a smaller section on top and lightly twist using bobby pins to secure in back.

4. Take small sections of each side while overlapping in the back with bobby pins (a layer at a time), until all the hair has been overlapped above the ponytail.

5. Use a hair bungee band to tie both the excess-layered hair strands and pony tail together.

6. Conceal the hair band by wrapping a small section of the hair from ponytail.  Secure using bobby pins.

so where do we begin? last month, we had the pleasure of being asked to join forces with an amazing creative team at the erich mcvey workshop. almost a week long project, we got to work with some of the industry’s top creatives along side erich mcvey, ginny au, sarah winward (honey of a thousand flowers)…just to name a few. and when you think it can’t get any better, once wed founder, emily newman, was there to provide her knowledge and expertise. she has now posted the amazing series of styled shoots on her blog. thank you erich & amy for having us there! it was an amazing experience! xoxo ~ mimi & taylor
