Now take the ponytail that you just made and twist the hair. Either you can twist the ponytail as a whole, or you can make sections and twist them around each other to form a spiral. Once you are doing twisting, secure it with another hair tie.

Now from the base, start making a coil by twisting the ponytail. When the ponytail completes one circle around the main base, use U pins to secure it in place.
