A twisted ponytail is not only a wonderfully simple and elegant style...its a great way to trim the ends. Smooth hair into a ponytail....use gel to control edges if needed. Tie a pretty ribbon around the ponytail holder to cover it and give it a pop of "wow". Now take a silk or satin scarf and tie down the edges...letting the twists hang out....then grapping a inch wide section of hair...2 strand twist to the end. At this point, trim as you go...trimming off the end.
You can also wait till you finish with all the twists and then trim the ends When all hair is completed...double check that you got each one and trim as necessary. Enjoy the hair style for a week, wrapping at night.
