DIY: Everyday Ponytail Overhaul


Add a twist to your simple everyday look without going overboard. If you can do a ponytail, and you can make a braid, you can create this look. Heres what to do…

1, Wash hair with a clarifying shampoo, follow up with conditioner for 5 minutes.

2, rinse well and towel dry before putting in heat protecting serum and some lightweight mousse for texture.

3, blow dry hair completely from root to tips using a paddle brush. (do not hassle this part or you will end up with fried and frizzy hair !!)

4, (this part is optional) you can roll up hair in sections and straighten with a flat iron or curl your hair with a curling iron for added volume, or skip both entirely.

5, Pull hair into a low ponytail using a clear elastic. (Leave out a few tresses if thats what you prefer)

6, Take a section of hair from the pony and braid it.

7, Wrap the braid around the rest of the pony (starting a few inches down from the base) and use one or two bobby pins on the underside of the pony to hold it in place. Spray with hairspray to finish.

This low maintenance style looks best if you have highlights in your hair =)
