Here is how to make your ponytail a shorter length without having to resort to scissors! I hope the pictures are clear enough. My brother was sitting while he took them and I was standing, so the angle isn't quite right. If someone needs further clarification I can try to take some more!



Hold your hair in a ponytail in your left hand (I have no idea why I have a big purple splodge in my hair! Must be leftover dye from a few years ago)



Hold a hairstick, tip facing the ground, next to the ponytail on the left. Then move the ponytail over the hairstick.



At this point you will have to loosen your ponytail some by pushing it towards the hairstick. This allows you to move the hairstick upwards.



Then bring the hairstick down, and voila! Your shortened ponytail is done. You can add another stick to keep it more secure if you want. You will have to experiment with what tension works for you!

Here is a shortened ponytail I did last month:



It is slightly longer because I made it looser than this one. Enjoy!

Love,

I love this, Leia, and will have to give it a try! Thanks for posting the instructions. Your hair is looking SO beautiful (and I don't see a purple "splodge" at all!)

I can't believe how much your hair has grown. Your hair looks like "Princess hair", if you know what I mean. It's so long and thick and dark and wavy. Gorgeous! I really admire it.
