“I am back with a fun twist on the half up ponytail for you to try,” explains explains Ariba Pervaiz, contributor for www.Latest-Hairstyles.com.

“This ‘do is ideal for those days I want to wear my hair down and still add a bit of interest. The “V” shape parting adds just the right amount of edge to this playful hairstyle. The elastic in the pony is seamlessly concealed with the help of a strong hold hairspray. I learned this technique while working backstage at Toronto Fashion Week and I am super excited to share it with you! This half up pony works great with straight or curly hair. In this tutorial I will be creating texture in the form of bouncy waves. Let’s get started!”
