High-Volume Pony

Who tried it: Anna, Associate Editor



Time it took: 2 minutes, 33 seconds



What you need: An elastic, a stretchy headband



How to get it:

1. Start by misting your roots with a volumizing product and rub it in well with your fingers.



2. Create a low ponytail at the nape of your neck, says Irene. Take a teasing comb and backcomb the ponytail for extra texture — you want it to look chunky.



3. Tug at the top of your head to loosen it up a bit, so your pony looks more voluminous.



4. Slip on an elastic headband to push the hair back from the forehead and give it volume and lift, says Irene.
