From Thanksgiving to New Years Day, there are so many different parties, activities, functions, gatherings…you get the picture. It is hard to find time to make your look for each event unique, doable and time sensitive. I have just the style to help. This modern and fun ponytail is perfect to add a slight edge to any look.
This look is perfect for any type of hair texture or type. The more texture the better so if you feel the need to add some loose waves as a prep that will only benefit you more, but not a necessary step. Then add a good texturizing product that is also workable with the hair. I recommend R and Co’s Soft Wave Spray or Oribe’s Texturizing Spray.
First, section hair as if you are going to put it in to a half up pony. You can either pull the hair all the way back from the hairline or have a part. It is your preference here. Use a small rubber band to hold the hair in place. Then take a small amount of hair from underneath the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic. You can either bobby pin it in place hidden under the pony or tuck it in the the rubber band on the underneath side.
With a teasing come or teasing brush of your choice, tease the hair in the ponytail towards the top, focusing mostly on the underneath side. Feel free to add more texture spray. Once done teasing expand the ponytail to your liking.
Gather the ponytail you created and the remainder of the hair and tie in to a low pony with another elastic. Repeat wrapping around a small amount of hair to cover the elastic. Repeat Step Two
At this point you can leave as is, or continue this pattern for as long as your hair or desired look can.
Finish with a flexible hair spray such as R and Co’s Outer space as texture is key, not necessarily extreme hold. I would also recommend using a shine spray such as R and Co Trophy or Oribe’s Shine Light Reflecting Spray.
