Don’t be fooled by Blake Lively’s relaxed ponytail at Cannes Film Festival 2016 – it’s actually the new effortless look which makes a clear style statement. It’s all about ample texture, lift at the roots with pretty tendrils around the face to kept the look soft and relaxed but right on trend.
Step 1. Start with day old hair for more grip to your style
Step 2. Curl hair with 1 inch curling iron but don’t brush through, instead tip head upside down and loosely shake out curls
Step 3. Apply dry shampoo to roots, shake through with fingers to create volume and messy texture
Step 4. Use a snag free elastic for ponytail leaving one small section out to wind around the ponytail, then tuck under and secure with a bobby pin. Pull out a few hair strands on either side of your face for a softer look.
