How-To Steps

1. Brush freshly blowdried hair into a high ponytail and secure.


2. Loop a scrunchie around the base of the pony and divide the hair into four or five sections.


3. Grab one section and wrap it around the scrunchie, pulling out the hair as you go for volume. Continue this step until each section is wrapped around the scrunchie.


4. Tuck and secure the ends into the topknot. Check to make sure each side is balanced.


5. Apply Pattern Beauty Edge Control to smooth back the baby hairs and create edge art.
