DIY Knot Ponytail

Hairstyles like this knotted ponytail are easier to DIY than you might think -- just follow this super-simple step-by-step guide. Then, make over your tresses with the help of iVillage beauty coach Gabriel Samra by joining our Get Great Hair Community Challenge now!

Ponytails are a simple style when you don’t have time to wrestle with your hair, but that doesn’t mean they have to be blah. Add a little spunk to your ponytail with a simple knotted base.

1. First, add a texturizing product to your hair to give it a little grip.

2. Next, divide your hair in half.

3. Then tie the two parts into a double knot.

4. Secure the knotted ponytail with an elastic band and a couple of hair pins.

5. To keep the ponytail in place, tease the ends.
