Lace Ponytail Wrap

Put a twist on an ordinary ponytail! During the Fendi Fall/Winter Runway show, master hairstylist Sam McKnight created a laced ponytail wrap that was both trendy and chic. BTC loved this creative pony so much that we wanted to see who would step up to the challenge of recreating it. And BTC Member Lindsay Mikesell Wolf from The Blowdry Cafe stepped up. Try this ponylicious creation when she’s looking for a little something different.
