The One Handed Ponytail

If you’re in an arm cast and thought you’d never be able to pull off a ponytail, I have some good news for you…

L.Erickson barrette



Behold… the large rectangular barrette!

L. Erickson enamel barrette


These barrettes are by L. Erickson and can be found at Nordstom.  All you need to do is tilt your head back and with clip in hand, grasp you hair and close the clasp.  The ponytail should be at the nape of your neck.


If you would like to try a one handed ponytail using an elastic or fabric hair tie, Bandaged Beauty Kaylee has been kind enough to share a great technique that she has perfected.

Step 1

Sit on a couch and put your hair hanging over the back.

Step 2

Place an elastic around four or five fingers.

Step 3

Once it’s around, take two fingers out to twist it and pull the hair through.


Did this work for you?  Would love to read your comments 💕
