How To Do a Sophisticated Pony

Gone are the days when ponytails were reserved for the gym and lazy hair days. With the right styling tools, the pony can instantly upgrade and elevate your look. Check out our advice below to take your pony to the next level with minimum effort. All these styles take 5 minutes or less!

For a do-it-all-spray, we like: Dry Bar Triple Sec Hair Volumizer, $25,

Add texture and freshness to your hair, all in one spray. Spray the underside of your hair and along your hairline to absorb excess oil. Massage into roots and toustle with your fingers for added fullness and volume.

For added shine, we like: Oscar Blandi Dry Conditioner, $25,

You’ve heard of dry shampoo, now try dry conditioner out for a change. This superfine mist added nourishing oils for a hint of shine, plus it helps detangle hair for easier brushing. After straightening hair, spray product and smooth back into a sleek pony. Use a hair bungee (as opposed to a band) to keep hair snag-free and smooth.

For volume, we like: Alterna Bamboo Volume 48-Hour Sustainable Volume Spray, $25,

Apply this spray to damp hair before your blowout for a serious boost in volume. For a truly glam look, divide hair into two ponies, one at the top of your head and one directly below it at the crown. This double pony look will create the illusion of fullness and volume, no extensions needed!
