1. Brush dry hair back away from your forehead into a tight, high ponytail, smoothing with gel as needed to keep hair slick and back.
2. Secure with an elastic.
3. Curl 2-inch sections of the hair in the ponytail around a large-barreled curling iron. Curl each section so that they fold away from the inside of the ponytail: counterclockwise on top of your pony, clockwise towards the bottom. Set for about 10 seconds each.
4. With each section, after you twist the iron out of your hair, roll the section back up with your fingers into the same coil and pin either down onto scalp or back into ponytail, creating a random look.
5. Go nuts with a strong hold hairspray -- no, really, now is not the time to be skimpy, it's the freakin' prom.
