Letters To Juliet Hairstyle

The Folded Half Ponytail Hairstyle From "Letters To Juliet"

Awhile back (around the time this movie came out) I did a post about some of the cute hairstyles in the movie "Letters To Juliet." This was right after we had cut the princess's hair for Locks Of Love and sadly she didn't have quite enough length to try and recreate any of the hair styles. Well, it has been awhile and her hair has grown quite a bit. Enough in fact that we were able to attempt this cute rolled, twisted and folded half pony!

Here is the original hairstyle on Amanda Seyfried (or Sophie in the movie.) Which I grabbed from the Letters To Juliet Trailer on Youtube.

Any takers? lol. This is the second time recently that I have forgotten to take a pic and have had to use a screen shot from our video!

So anyway, this is a great hairstyle for moms as well as teens, tweens, and girls. I actually tried this on my own hair when I got home from the movie the night I watched it and have worn it quite a bit since then.... so I've had some practice. I love that this hairdo is quick but still has an elegant look to it.

The Letters To Juliet Hair Tutorial:


As you'll notice while watching the tutorial, I only used 2 bobby pins to create the style. Depending on the thickness and texture of your hair, you may need to use more. This will also depend on the type of bobby pins you are using. We purchased the bobby pins used in this video at a beauty supply store, so they hold a little tighter than the usual cheapy version. You'll probably need to experiment a little and figure out what works best for you!
