If you are a gal on the go that’s looking for a quick and easy hair style that holds up all day, look no further! The high ponytail is popular because it is so versatile and easy to do. So today I thought I’d share with you my super easy, three-step tutorial to creating a high ponytail that won’t fall during the day, using my favorite TRESemmé products. This simple technique creates a lot of body, making this a good style choice for us girls with thinner hair! The finished result is both playful and sexy, a look that can easily transition from day to night. Check out the step by step tutorial below!
HIGH PONYTAIL – STEP ONE
Use TRESemmé Dry Shampoo to perk up second day (otherwise known as dirty) hair. It’s an oil-absorbing powder that, when applied to your hair, can soak up excess grease and dirt without getting your hair wet. Use your fingers to loosely lift and section the hair, and focus on spraying the root area. Also, be sure not to rub it in immediately after spraying it on—give it a few minutes to absorb the oil at your scalp! Regardless of whether or not my hair is oily, the TRESemmé Dry Shampoo helps to create volume and texture to my fine hair, making it easier to style.
HIGH PONYTAIL – STEP TWO
Create volume by using use a slim hair brush with tourmaline bristles to further help work the dry shampoo formula into your hair. Once you’ve completed each section of your scalp, slightly tease your crown with a teasing comb to create lift at the root. Here I’m using a tangle teezer, which will also help grab all the fine, baby hairs and secure them. Adding volume creates a ‘messy’ or ‘undone’ look, rather than a slicked back and polished pony.
HIGH PONYTAIL – STEP THREE
Begin to pull your hair up to your desired height and secure your high ponytail with an elastic hair tie. Finish it off by adding beachy waves and the TRESemmé Compressed Micro-Mist Hair Spray! The breakthrough NEW TRESemmé Compressed Micro-Mist Hair Sprays give you style without stiffness for a natural, lasting hold that will move with you as you dance, run, work, or party the day away in a carefree, high ponytail!
