The ponytail is all at once cute, sassy, and sophisticated, making it the perfect accessory for those days when you need something that’s both beautiful and fast. Adding a ponytail to your ensemble brings an element of playfulness, but it’s important to keep it looking cosmopolitan, not girly.
So what makes this ponytail so special? Its the combination of waves, volume and side swept bangs that create a modern twist. Try this look with jeans and heals or your favorite little black dress.
To create this look start by applying a leave in conditioner on the ends of your hair, this is important to keep your tail looking pretty and polished. Next spritz a few pumps of a heat protecting spray and sea spray. The protecting spray will make sure your locks stay shiny throughout your blow dry and this waves spray is fantastic for making light sexy waves.
To add volume smooth, apply one of the Add Volume Texture Creams. This product adds medium hold and packs a ton of body into your main. Make sure to apply these products before you blow dry, they are all heat activated.
Now you’re ready for your blow out. For this look don’t use a straightener, you want a bit of wave. For slight waves use a concentrator attachment or for added wave use a diffuser. Now that you have a nice wave and great volume, pull your hair back just above the nape of your neck. Use a fabric covered rubber band to protect your hair from breakage. To complete the look take a small chunk from the ponytail and wrap it around the rubber band several times. A few bobby pins will hold the strands wrapped around the band in place.
Finish with a few pumps of a shine spray. A shine spray is a great tool because you don’t have to touch the hair after you apply it, just spritz and go.
Add your favorite sunglasses and a fabulous bracelet – you’re off looking chic, confident and fun!
