How To: Messy Ponytail

Whether for the weekend or a night out, throwing your hair into a messy ponytail can be the easiest and quickest way to make your hair look ‘done’. Plus it’s a style that works wonders on days when your hair won’t do what it’s told.

But how can turn your plain ponytail into something modern and fresh? Our senior stylist, Annalise is sharing three easy steps to help you create this modern ‘undone’ look for yourself:

1. Make sure your hair is dirty or at least a day old. Drop your head back and use your fingers to pull your hair from the nape up into a ponytail and secure at the top of the crown. Best not to try and make it too high. 

2. Once secured use your fingers to ‘messy’ up the front of the hair. or push your palm flat on areas to make the style look worn in. you can also pull small strands out from the side of the ears to make it look even messier too. 

3. If your hair hasn’t been washed your ponytail should remain textured. So you shouldn’t need to do anything else to it. Finish off the look with a spray of a medium hold hairspray. We lovel Label M’s hairspray. 

Some further inspo for your weekend ahead is below. Happy styling!
