To make a curly ponytail, wash and condition the hair, apply strong gel, blow dry the hair, make a side part, wrap an elastic bungee around the hair, and apply hair spray. This one-hour procedure requires shampoo, conditioner, hair gel, heat protection spray, a blow dryer, a diffuser, a styling comb, hair spray, shine spray and an elastic bungee.
- Prepare the hair
Wash and condition the hair. Squeeze out excess moisture, spray the hair liberally with heat protection spray, apply strong hair gel, distribute the gel with a comb, and blow dry the hair with a diffuser. To preserve the curls and reduce frizz, do not comb the hair during or after drying.
- Form the ponytail
Use the pick end of the styling comb to make a deep side part. Gather the hair in your hands, draw it over one shoulder, and wrap a hair bungee around it. Place the bungee below and behind the ear. Connect the bungee hooks.
- Set the style
Gently break up large curls with your fingers. Mist the hair with flexible-hold hair spray, applying extra product to the hair near the bungee. The best hair sprays for this style are frizz-fighting formulations that contain silicone. Give the hair spray 10 seconds to dry, then apply shine spray.
