Undone Pony

Ponytails usually don’t scream “prom hairstyle,” but this messy-chic pony is perfect for the occasion.

1. This look works best with air-dried or unwashed hair. If your hair is stick straight, spritz a texturizer throughout and wrap random sections of your hair around a styling wand to give your hair subtle waves.

2. Lift the top layer of your hair and lightly tease at the crown using a fine tooth comb to create volume. Then separate your hair into four equal sections.

3. Take the two bottom sections in the center and twist them inward toward each other, then secure with an elastic to create a low ponytail.

4. Next, take the two face-framing (top) sections of your hair and twist them inward and back towards the base of the ponytail. Criss-cross the two sections over the base of the ponytail and secure with bobby pins.

5. Pull out a few pieces of hair to frame your face, and finish with a light mist of a workable hairspray.
