There are several reasons why we revisit the tousled ponytail time and again. It looks quite sexy, but in an easy-going way, has plenty of texture and movement and can be dressed up for a formal occasion or tweaked down for a more casual look.
Tousled ponytails work best with medium-length to long, wavy hair. So if you have straight tresses, wrap them around a medium-barreled curling iron to create loose waves before pulling them back into a pony.
Here's a step by step tutorial on how to create a tousled pony in ten minutes:
- Heat Protectant Spray
- Blow Dryer
- Hair Tie
- Tousle Waves Spray
Get the Look:
Spritz your damp hair with heat protectant spray and blow-dry it roughly.
Trace out a soft side part of your choice. Divide your hair into medium-sized sections.
Take one section and twist it, holding the end with your fingers. Spritz it with tousle waves hairspray for added texture and blow-dry completely. Repeat the step with all the hair sections.
Once you've texturized your hair, finger-comb it gently to break it up and create a more natural, tousled finish.
Spritz your hair generously with hairspray to seal the texture for longer wear.
Pull all your hair back into a loose ponytail and secure it with hair tie. Pull out small wisps for a more laid-back look.
Finish your tousled pony with hairspray.
