Teased Low Pony

This few-step style takes minutes. Just comb through hair, lightly tease the crown, and pull back into a low pony. Be sure to keep the pony loose so you can pull out face-framing pieces.

If you want the hair-wrapped pony like the one in this photo, take a one-inch strand from underneath once you’ve tied the hair back. Then wrap it around the hair tie until you have about an inch left of hair – tuck the ends into the hair tie and spritz with hairspray to secure.

All natural

Who says you have to do anything with your hair for it to look good? You won’t need anything more than a bit of volumizing mousse and shine serum. Just scrunch hair and let it air dry for a casual, natural look like this one.

PS — if you want to achieve this natural look but are rolling your eyes at us because your hair falls flat the second you walk out the door, we totally understand. Try the following:

  • Dry shampoo, dry shampoo, dry shampoo. We can’t stress it enough – this stuff is a game changer and triples as a volumizer, oil absorber, and texturizer.
  • Run a few curls through it. The key word here is few. Take a larger barrel and wrap face-framing pieces – but only for a few seconds. Then run your fingers through it to create that carefree look.
