The Ponytail

Supplies:

  • Paddle brush
  • Elastic band
  • 1 1/4″ Curling Iron
  • Hair pins
  • Hairspray

Instructions:

Step 1 / Brush through the hair to remove any tangles. Then sweep all the hair up into a ponytail slightly higher than the center of the back of the head.

Tip: For a smooth style, brush through the hair, then spray it with hairspray before brushing through it again to smooth down any loose hairs.

Step 2 / Wrap the ponytail with an elastic. Make sure it is tight against the head by dividing the ponytail into two halves and pulling each in opposite directions.

Gently pull the hair at the crown up and forwards, slightly loosening it from the elastic. This will help it even out but also add a hint of volume without needing to back comb the hair first.

Step 3 / Divide the ponytail into two halves and curl each half towards each other with a 1 1/4″ curling iron. This step is important if you want the ponytail to look polished.

Step 4 / Take a small section of hair from underneath the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic band to hide it.

Step 5 / Secure the end of the hair underneath the ponytail by sliding a hair pin upwards, into the hair, to hide it.

Step 6 / Set the style with a shower of hairspray and you are ready for anything!

    How can you get the kink out of a ponytail, or prevent it???

      Honestly, I’m not sure. I usually run a flat iron over it or just wait til the next day to wear my hair down again (:
