  Make a Tousled Ponytail in 5 Easy Steps

Wavy hair and ponytails are two of the hottest hair trends of this season. When you merge the two, you get a perfect on trend hairstyle – the tousled ponytail.

Tousled ponytails are everywhere these days and the easiest way to rock them is to go for a simple low variation that gathers all your hair at the nape of your neck and allows your wavy tresses to cascade beautifully down your back. This style works best with medium-length hair, preferably layered.

Pair your tousled pony with a casual dress for a fun outing with friends or wear it with an elegant outfit for a more formal occasion.

Here's how you can make a tousled ponytail that looks as if it were styled in a salon:

Step One

Spritz some tousle waves hairspray all over your damp hair. Don't worry if you haven't had the time to shampoo your hair; you can still mist your hair with the spray.

Step Two

Divide your hair into 7-8 vertical sections, about 2" thick. Twist each section, hold on to the end and blow dry it. The tousle waves hairspray will help your hair to set as you dry it. Repeat this step with the rest of the sections till you've created gorgeous beachy waves.

Step Three

Use your fingers to break up your hair and make a middle part.

Step Four

Gather all your hair at the nape of your neck and tie it in a low ponytail using an elastic.

Step Five

Spritz your tousled ponytail with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to set your hairstyle and you're good to go!
