Sassy Ponytail in 6 Easy Steps
There are days (all of them) that I just can’t be bothered to do my hair, but I still want to look put together. And, added bonus, ponytails are perfect for hot summer days, so really it’s a good idea to start practicing now. I sat down with the hair goddesses at Brambila and they gave me six easy steps to a sexy, sassy ponytail.
Apply a dry texturizing spray at your roots, then massage (like you’re lathering shampoo!) to create extreme volume. This creates an amazing base for a sturdy pony to last all day, even on a hot and humid day. Unite Eurotherapy’s Texturiza Spray rocks my world – and smells delicious.
Using a close bristle comb or a teasing brush, carefully back comb the roots at the crown of your head. Teasing, when done gently, comes in handy for two reasons; It provides great lift and it also helps keep the sweat further away from your hair (which prevents your style from falling due to oil).
Pull your hair back with your hands to create an effortlessly chic and bouncy ponytail. Position your pony a little higher than what you might think because it will fall a bit. Secure with an elastic.
A ponytail looks more polished when you wrap the elastic with a piece of your own hair. To do this, section off a piece from underneath your pony, then wrap it as many times as you can around the elastic. Secure this hair underneath the pony with a bobby pin.
Gently massage a pomade into the ends of your hair. We use Unite Eurotherapy’s Second Day. Using a pomade adds a lustrous gold look to your hair, making it look healthy, shiny, and rich.
Lastly, finish off the look with a spritz of light-hold hair spray. You don’t want your pony to look plastered, but you want to keep frizziness at bay.
