Step 1: Part your hair in the centre to get two equal sections.

Step 2: Flip one section over the other in a crisscross way so that you end up holding the left section in your right hand and right section in your left.

Step 3: Now loop one section of hair through the hole so as to tie the knot. Pull each side tight to secure this ponytail.

Step 4: Now hold the knotted sections and tie off your pony just below the knot using hair ties.

Step 5: Grab a bobby pin and insert it down the knot to prop it up.

Step 6: Lastly, take a small section of hair and wrap it around the hair tie, once you reach the end, tuck the ends under the ponytail and secure using bobby pins.
