Step 1. Start with clean, or lived in, iron curled hair. Rough up the curls with your fingers and apply hairspray to the roots for lift and texture.
Tip: if your hair is ‘lived in’ switch out the hairspray for dry shampoo.
Step 2. Pull hair up as though you are pulling it into a ponytail. Twist the ‘ponytail’ and pin the underneath with bobby pins – Allow the tail to cascade down.
Step 3. Tuck and pin the ends of the tail with bobby pins.
Tip: this is where you can have a little fun. Grab pieces of the tail and pin them in different places to create texture. You can twist the ends before pinning for more visual interest!
Step 4. Spray, spray, spray! Spray hair generously with hairspray to lock in this style.
Tip: you can soften this hairstyle even more by pulling out wispy hairs near your ears. Or leave a portion of curled hair out in the front for a dramatic profile!
