You’re not basic – so your ponytail shouldn’t be, either! Take your hair game up-a-notch by creating a glam wrap pony hairstyle that is sure to turn heads. The best part? This stylish look can have you looking effortlessly chic in under a minute and doesn’t require you to plug in your curling iron or wait for your straightener to heat up. Here’s how Redken Artist Cindy Duplantis creates a glamorous ponytail in just three easy steps.
1. Smooth & Tame
In order to create this pony, start by spraying your hair brush with your favorite high-hold hairspray. This quick technique helps to tame any static, frizz or flyaways that may pop up while you’re brushing your hair. It’s an easy way to help tame your mane while ensuring that your hair stays looking smooth and polished as you style.
2. Create A Low Pony
Next, use your brush to help gather your strands towards the nape of your neck and create a low ponytail. Once you’ve gathered your hair, secure your strands with an elastic to help lock in the hairstyle.
3. Get Wrapping
From there, take a small section of hair from the ponytail and begin wrapping it around the elastic. As you wrap, take your hairspray, spray the section, and smooth with your fingers as you go. Make sure to keep the nozzle close to the hair you’re working with in order to fully saturate the strand with the product. Continue this trick all the way around the base of your ponytail until you’ve come to the end of your section.
