Here's our step-by-step guide to creating a messy ponytail.
A great alternative to the chignon: the messy ponytail is perfect for fans of the boho, romantic style. Easy to create and keep in place all day, wear it at the beach or on a night out in summer.
Here's our step-by-step guide to creating a messy ponytail Step 1:
Create your centre parting
and keep one section to the side. Then create a low ponytail
. You will use the section you kept to one side to hide your hair band. Roll it around the hair band and secure with a hair grip, which you can hide in your hair. Step 2:
Leave two pieces of hair loose around your face to give your style that messy feel. If you have straight hair, create a wavy effect using curling tongs
. Step 3:
Scrunch up or backcomb your lengths
for a romantic touch. Finish with a layer of hairspray. © Pixelformula/John Galliano Prêt-à-Porter show, Spring-Summer 2013 © Jean Louis David
