The ponytail, AKA everybody's favorite updo, is so versatile that it's always going to be 'in', especially when it can we styled, shaped and sculpted to fit any and every hair trend. Basically, people just love to wear their ponies and the winds of hairstyle change ain't gonna stop them. Appropriately, windswept hair textures are set to be a huge beauty trend for 2014 and one of the easiest ways to wear them is with a ponytail, naturally.

Get the look

Recreating this look couldn't be easier, and it's also a lot of fun to style. Wispy, carefree textures like this mean you get to break a few rules, what's not to like? For a hairstyle like this, you need to forget about taming flyaways, embrace them instead!

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse
Blow-dryer with diffuser
Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray
Fine-tooth comb
Hair elastic
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Step one: Starting with damp hair, scrunch Volume Inject Mousse evenly throughout then blow-dry using a diffuser. Keep scrunching as you go to give your look plenty of movement and body.

Step two: Mist the hair with High Lift Creation Spray and tease the top layers a little to create a lightweight, wispy texture. You don't have to tease very much and you can use your hands to muss and tousle the hair, too.

Step three: Gather the hair back into a slightly loose high pony.

Step four: Take a small section of hair from the pony and wrap it around the base to camouflage the hair elastic.

Step five: Mist all of the hair with Bold Control Hairspray, and muss the lengths of the pony. Take a few sections of hair and push the hair back on itself, then scrunch to finish. That's it!

Now you can go ahead and dress up the look with intense makeup for a night out or something more neutral for a chic daytime ensemble. Happy styling!
