After what seemed like the longest, hottest & driest summer, we are finally starting to get our fair share of rain here in NY. Having naturally curly hair, the humidity presents a significant challenge for me. So when we’re expecting a day full of wet weather, a ponytail is my hairstyle of choice. This is my new favorite way to wear mine because it is a little edgier & slightly more glamorous. Some examples:
How to try it:
1) Tease your hair back at the crown (even if you have bangs, this will work). Smooth out the top over the teased portion.
2) Pull all your hair back into a high ponytail. You want it to be slicked fairly tight on the sides, but keep the volume at the top.
3) Secure with a clear elastic or one that is the same color as your hair. You may need to tug on the top to pull it out more so you get the right amount of height.
4) Spray with a firm hold hairspray. (I also like to grab a small section of hair from the ponytail, wrap it around the base and secure with a bobby pin for a more polished look).
