The ponytail’s a classic, easy hairdo that will never go out of style, but sometimes a small tweak or twist can turn it into a truly standout look.

Got three minutes? That’s all you need. Scroll through to see the step-by-step double ponytail tutorial!
Work a pea-sized amount of styling cream (Atkin loves Éclat Naturel Styling Cream ($46) from Leonor Greyl) between your fingers and run it through the lengths of your ponytail. You can also smooth down any loose pieces up top.
And that’s your double ponytail: five simple steps in three minutes or less.
