Here’s how to create a casual ponytail
1. Use styler in hair and twist clockwise and anti-clockwise to roots
2. Spray hair with hairspray and secure
3. Loosen sections to add texture
step one: Twist styler clockwise and anti-clockwise to roots
Taking small sections of the hair, work the ghd platinum® styler from the roots, rocking it clockwise and anti-clockwise.
step two: Spray hair with hairspray and secure
Gently tease the hair in sections, misting lightly with hairspray as you go. Secure with a bungee or hair band, slightly off center.
Tip: Tilt the head back while you secure the ponytail - it keeps hair from bagging underneath.
step three: Loosen sections to add texture
Lightly loosen the hair in sections to bring texture to the final look. Mist with hairspray to finish.
