How To: Polished Ponytail
Worn at the gym or gala, a ponytail is a versatile look that is both playful and elegant. My favorite look for red carpet in a couture gown, the ponytail is understated and refined.
✒ Boar Bristle Hairbrush
✒ Hair Elastic
✒ Styling Moose
✒ Shine Serum
✒Day-old hair transitions better into a ponytail. Start by adding a dollop of styling moose to hair for some weight and texture.
✒For sleek ponytail, run a flat iron over hair. For wave/curly style, wrap 1-inch sections around curling-wand and repeat in diferent directions.
✒Brush hair back into ponytail. Using a boar-bristle brush will help with bumps and tangles.
✒ Secure with elastic.
✒Tame fly-aways with a spritz of hairsray.
✒ For added polish, run a shine serum through ponytail.
Hide the elastic: Pull a pencil-thick piece of hair from the bottom of the ponytail. Wrap hair around elastic. Leave 2-inces to pull down through the elastic. Secure with bobby pins.
Add hair accesories: Find a great headband or jeweled clip, or take a very thin piece of ribbon and tie a sweet bow on top or hide bow underneath, bobby pin to secure.
