Get the look

Step one
Start in the shower by using a volume-enhancing shampoo and conditioner. Then, after towel drying, scrunch some L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse evenly throughout.

Step two
Blow-dry your hair using a paddle brush to guide the hair straight. When it's about 80% dry, flip your head upside down to finish drying. This will lift the hair at the root and give your locks plenty of added volume.

Step three
Once it's all completely dry, use a flat iron for any further straightening. Your hair should always be totally dry when using any kind of iron on it to avoid frying your strands.

Step four
Part your hair deep on one side, using a tail comb for accuracy.

Step five
Gather all of your hair back into a low ponytail and tie. If you want an ultra-chic finish, take a small piece of hair from the pony and wrap it around the elastic. Pin underneath to secure it and voilà, your hair looks like it's holding itself up.

Step six
Complete the look with a generous mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray. That's it!

Where will you wear this simple yet totally gorgeous ponytail?
