Wish there were more African-American hairstyle ideas out there, complete with pretty pictures and easy-to-follow steps? Wish granted.
I'm a big fan of the snooze button, especially when I've got the Monday morning blues, so this sideswept ponytail is the perfect look for today. (If you're ever in a time crunch, this one's practically effortless, especially if your hair happens to have extra texture from the day before, says hairstylist Garret Dunton.)
1. I leave out my bangs and smooth them to the side using a blow dryer and a round brush.
2. Using my fingers, I roughly gather all of my hair to one side and secure it in a ponytail under my ear with an elastic.
3. Then I separate my ponytail into three large sections, and wrap each section around a 2-inch curling iron to add a few curls throughout the bottom half of my hair.
4. I mist my ponytail with Dove Flexible Hold Hairspray, $4, to keep the look in place but still give it some natural movement.
