Forgoing traditional elastics will also update your double ponytails.
"A fun twist on the look is to wrap the pigtails in elastic twine vs. rubber bands. This gives it a little more attitude," Fugate explained. "The twine also gives you control when styling the hair. And it helps to avoid bumps and rigidness in the hair that elastics can cause. When you are wrapping the twine, it is locking the hair in place, rather than using a rubber band moving the hair around a lot as you flip the hair into the band loop."
To secure the tails, hold the pigtail where you want it to stay, then wrap the twine around. "Once you start wrapping, you can't really move it around as you can with rubber bands," Fugate said.
