Ponytails are great for all kinds of reasons – including practicality, easy styling, and hiding bad hair days – but did you realize they look really good with ombre hair? This side pony is just perfect for showing off a two-tone color and it creates a gorgeous a-symmetrical silhouette with a ton of volume thrown in for good measure.

If you have ombre hair or are thinking about trying it, this could be your new go-to style! It's full of texture and looks great on just about everyone. Keep reading to find out just how to get the look.

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse
Blow-dryer with diffuser
Hair elastic
Bobby pins
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Step one: Starting with damp hair, apply Volume Inject Mousse evenly from roots to ends then blow-dry using a diffuser. Scrunch your hair with your hands as you go.

Step two: Use a comb to define a side part. It doesn't have to be perfect, just more on one side than the other.

Step three: Gather all your hair over one shoulder and then secure it into a loose, low ponytail with a hair elastic.

Step four: Take a small section of hair from the pony, and wrap it around the elastic. Secure it on the underside of the ponytail with a bobby pin.

Step five: Secure any major flyaways or short sections of hair with bobby pins then mist generously with Bold Control Hairspray for long-lasting hold. And you're done!

You could even add a mini braid to the pony or team this hairstyle with a simple headband to help make it your own.

Happy styling!
