How to create a cascade of textured twists

If you have naturally curly hair or want to create a special day-two look after using a crimping iron, this textured style is the one to try. At first glance, the hairstyle looks complicated, but don't let it fool you. A sequence of twisted ponytails are nested into the design, and the texture provides softness and dimension.
This hairstyle looks amazing, even when you don't have time to wash your hair. Begin by pulling the upper section of your hair back into a ponytail, then make a small opening with your fingers and loop the hair through the hole to create the twist. Repeat that technique with additional sections until your style is complete.

Instructions
1. If your hair is naturally straight, use a crimping iron to create voluminous waves. If you have curly hair, start with step two.
2. Part your hair horizontally above your ears, then secure the upper section with a hair elastic. Gently pull the hair apart just above the elastic to give the top section more volume.
3. Use your fingers to create an opening in the hair above the elastic, then lift the ponytail up and over the elastic and pull it down through the opening. This will create the twist. Tip: Tug the sides apart slightly to fluff up the twist before moving on to the next step.
4. Repeat steps two and three while incorporating more hair into the first ponytail. You should have two twisted ponytails, one below the other, at this point.
5. Create more twisted ponytails until all of your hair has been gathered into one mesmerizing sequence of twists.
Wow! How can something so simple look so intricate? Feel free to share your secret or keep it to yourself. Enjoy the compliments and stay pretty!
