Three Top Tails Step-by-Step

On February 15, 2012 by coreypowellhair

Do you really need a good reason for a ponytail? A perfect look for a cocktail party or dress down couture – they also keep you cool and an extra day or two out of a blow-out,. Here are three effortless looks that start with dry hair and require NO precise blowout!

 

 LOW & MESSY

  1. Spritz hair all over with a salt spray and scrunch it upward with your hands.
  2. Bulk up texture by blasting your hair with a blow dryer for about a minute.
  3. Finger comb hair into a slightly loose ponytail and anchor with an elastic.
  4. Take a half-inch section of the tail, wrap it around the elastic and pin underneath.
  5. For added roughness spritz the tail with texturizing spray and scrunch one more time.

 

HIGH & SLEEK

  1. Apply a light smoothing cream and tightly brush hair into a high ponytail at the level of your temples.
  2. Camouflage your hair elastic with a 1/2-inch of the tail, wrapped around the base and pinned in place.
  3. To smooth fly-aways and lock in style, mist the head (not the tail) with a light finishing spray.
  4. For a runway-sleek tail, go over small sections of the hair with a flat iron, until completely smooth and shiny.

VOLUMINOUS

  1. For a quick lift and body, apply a texture spray from roots to mid-shaft.
  2. Wrap big sections of hair around a 1-inch curling iron, winding away from the face.
  3. Starting about 3-inches down the hair shaft, tease hair toward the scalp with a boar-bristle brush. Smooth a layer of the crown over the teased portion.
  4. Part hair to your liking and brush the sides back and down, gathering all the hair into a low ponytail. Secure with elastic and mist with a light-hold spray.
