1. Apply Schwarzkopf Professional Professionelle Laque Super Strong Hold Hairspray at the crown and tease the hair in sections to create volume.


2. Pinch small sections of hair at the root to create ridges, then use a tail comb to smooth out the midlengths and ends.


3. Apply Redken Wax Blast 10, then use your tail comb and fingers to make the ridges more defined.


4. Take small sections of hair back and use a bobby pin to secure each one right at the occipital bone. Gently pinch and pull each section to continue that ridge pattern.


5. Then, gather all the hair into a ponytail and secure with a clear elastic. 


6. To create the bun, attach two bobby pins to an elastic. Hold the pony up to the head and slide one bobby pin in, then move across the front of the pony and slide the second bobby pin in on the other side. 


7. Twist the pony, slide a bobby pin into the center and then wrap her hair around the base to finish creating the bun. Apply more bobby pins as needed and spray Professionelle Laque Super Strong Hold Hairspray for a sleek finish.

1. Crimp the hair at the roots to create texture, then apply L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Wild Stylers Next Day Hair and lightly tease at the crown.


2. Pull half of the hair back and secure with a hair pin. Then, pinch small sections to form ridges for dimension and apply Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+® Session Finish Extreme Hold Hairspray so they stay in place. 


3. Then, starting at the base of the ponytail, take large sections and twist to form the updo. Secure with bobby pins, then finish with Schwarzkopf Professional SILHOUETTE Super Hold Hairspray for extra hold.

1. First, apply Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo at the roots section by section.


2. Brush the hair up into a ponytail, ensuring the grain flows in the same direction. Then, use your fingers to create separation and texture.


3. Next, hook a bungee band in the back and wrap it around the ponytail to secure.


4. Spray Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray throughout the ponytail section by section, then create a three-strand braid and wrap the braid around the base of the ponytail.


5. Pull it apart slightly for added volume, then use a bobby pin to anchor the braid to the base.


6. Using your hands, apply Oribe Swept Up Volume Powder Spray to pull out a few pieces to add softness.
