10 Days of Super Easy Ways to Style Your Hair: Day 4

4. Soft wavy ponytail. So you've flat iron curled your hair and worn it for a day or two. Now, it's time to pull it back into a ponytail. If you notice you've got some oil at your roots, spray a little dry shampoo through your hair. I only use it on my bangs because they're the oiliest. Next, tease the crown of your head. I like a lot of volume, so I tease it pretty high. I subscribe to the philosophy that hair, like boobs, can never be too big. You may not feel that way, so tease to a height with which you are comfortable. Now, pull your hair into a loose ponytail near the middle of the back of your head, leaving some wispy pieces around your face. You'll want the ponytail to be a little higher on the head than Day 1's style. Pin any stray pieces you may have that you didn't leave on purpose. Next, tease the "mane" of your ponytail for a little texture. Last, spray a light mist of hairspray, and you're done. Because you haven't washed or re-curled your hair, you get a soft wavy look that I just adore.

I like leaving chunky bangs for this look

Notice the volume at the crown
I teased more at the top of the ponytail and less at the bottom
