Get the Look
Spritz some high-lift creation hairspray on your roots to give your hair an instant boost.
Create a side part with 1-2 inches of your face-framing hair and section off your strands.
Using your fine toothed comb, back brush your hair gently at the crown to create a small bouffant. This teasing technique will help you build volume. Spritz some bold control hairspray to set the teased hair section and tuck in a couple of bobby pins to prevent the bouffant from budging.
Using the back of your comb, smooth out your front hair over the bouffant to make it look even. Spritz some more hairspray to set this section.
Mist your ponytail with a good quality heat protectant hairspray to shield the strands from the damages of heat styling.
Roll the end of your ponytail on a medium-barreled curling iron, wait for a couple of seconds and let the curled hair section slide off the iron.
