Hey guys. This week we are adding one more fun Halloween hairstyle tutorial to our collection before October is gone! We recently went through our archives on our website (Princess Hairstyles) and found this spider web ponytail that we originally posted way back in 2008 as a pictorial. We remembered this woven spider web as being one of my daughter's favorites back then.... and she says she still remembers receiving tons of comments and compliments on this hairstyle when she wore it to a school Halloween carnival 8 years ago while she was in Kindergarten! Of course, we decided we needed to share this spooky hairstyle in an updated video tutorial for you today.
Tangled Weave Spider Web Ponytail Video Tutorial (Click here to watch the video directly on YouTube.)
We are loving the intricate webbing design created around the ponytail with these woven twists. As mentioned in our video, you could add a bun instead of the ponytail if you prefer, and bring the weaving all the way around her head in a full circle, just like a real spider web!
We added a cute spider bow (which was given to us years ago) to our finished design. Of course, this is optional but a spider accessory of some kind would make the perfect finishing touch to this hairstyle.
Supplies needed to recreate this spider web hairstyle:
- Several small, clear elastics.
- 1 medium size hair tie or ponytail holder.
- Several claw clips
- A spider accessory to add to your finished web (optional.)
P.S. Although this hairstyle is fairly easy and requires no braiding skills at all... it can be time consuming. I would give yourself 20-30 minutes to complete.
