Pony Tails Are NOT A Last Resort
The pony tail is great! We’ve all used a pony tail to pull our hair out of our face when running errands or as a
last minute fix when there’s no time to do a full style. But the pony tail has so much more potential than that! It doesn’t have to be “just” a pony tail; it can be a sweet, sexy, flirty full on style.
The Triple Braid
This is perfect for work or going out for lunch with the girls; plus it’s super easy to do! After washing and drying your hair, spray it with a volumizing spray. Pull it back into a low pony tail, making sure that the top of your hair is loose and voluminous. Split the pony into three sections and braid each individually. Then braid each of the three together and secure with a clear plastic band. This oversize braid will give you a fun and focused look for any day of the week.
To get this look, pull your hair into a low, loose side pony and spray it with a thermal protection spray. Use a waver to get some tousled waves by wrapping 3-inch sections around the barrels and letting them heat just enough for a subtle wave. To add a little extra flair, wrap a section of hair around the elastic band and pin it down or fluff up your bangs and pin them back into a little poof.
A Big Bun
This daring look is perfect for date night or going out on the town with your best girlfriends. Spritz your dry hair with a flexible hold hairspray and tease it all over to give it some volume. Pull your hair into a high pony on the top of you head and secure with a strong elastic band. Wrap your whole pony tail around itself and pin the ends down to create a big, loose bun. Pull out random sections for a bit more daring and messy-on-purpose effect.
