Having a bad hair day? Work with what you’ve got! By adding instant volume to already-texturized (read: dirty) hair, the tousled ‘n textured pony turns greasy strands into a chic updo that’s sure to impress. Nicholas Penna Jr., lead stylist and owner of SalonCapri in Boston, breaks the look down for us in three simple steps.
-Take a brush and lightly tease the front layers of your hair between your temples;
-Gather hair—starting at the nape of your neck—and band your strands together with a snag-free elastic at the desired position;
-To hide the elastic, wrap small section of hair around the base of your ponytail and tuck it in to secure.
