It’s no secret: low-maintenance styles are THE go-to looks for today’s ~cool girls~. So when celeb stylist Mara Roszak (@mararoszak) created a tousled high pony for “Maid” star and actress Margaret Qualley for the 2022 Grammy Awards, we needed details. 


“The cute bike short meets classic Chanel inspired me to create a high pony with a slightly ’80s feel. We wanted the pony to have some volume and natural wavy texture, while keeping it classic and swept off the face,” explained Mara of the style.

Products Used



Apply Elements Renewing Leave-In Spray from Wella Professionals to damp hair to hydrate and protect during styling. 


While the hair is still damp, apply styling oil and use a small round brush to smooth the hair dry maintaining natural texture around the face.


Once the hair is dry, apply a small amount of Wella Professionals EIMI Root Shoot Precise Root Mousse at the base to create soft volume. Then, use a 1 1/4 curling iron to accentuate the hair’s natural texture with a slight bend. 


Gather the hair back into a high ponytail just below the crown, leaving out some soft face frame pieces. Use pins to secure the ponytail in place and wrap a small section of hair around the base of the ponytail to hide any pins or elastics. 


Lightly spray the ponytail with EIMI Ocean Spray Spritz Salt Hairspray and gently scrunch to create a bouncy texture. Then, lock the style into place with EIMI Stay Firm Workable Finishing Hairspray

To finish, add a barrette to the base of the ponytail slightly off center.
