We've spotted this same crisscross ponytail again and again on Pinterest, and we've repinned it more than once, too. But while we love looking at hair porn, we needed further instructions to get the look at home (sorry, we're not so strand savvy). So, we enlisted Lauren Thompson from the Nunzio Saviano Salon to break down this pony, step by step. We're dubbing this the new way to hide an ugly elastic, and it's just as easy as the old wraparound trick. The woven design immediately upgrades the classic second-day ponytail to red carpet-worthy levels. Plus, this is one updo tutorial we can guarantee won't end in a #PinterestFail.
