Yes, half ponytails are very simple. I'll give you really, really, really easy instructions since I am the same way with hair! lol. First, part your hair in the center. Next, take the two pieces in the front and pull them up so they meet in the center. Then, take your brush and brush back the top of your hair so you have a little section of hair on top of your head. Then, adjust it to where you want it, higher on top of your head, or lower in back of your head. Then put your ponytail holder in..
Heres an instructional video on how to do a half up, half down pull through, but ignore the clip, just watch how she brushed her hair back..
* Just go down to the picture of the blonde girl with the title: Half Up, Half down.
