Textured Ponytail Step by Step with Cloud Nine
Cloud Nine’s style ambassador James Earnshaw shows us how to create this textured ponytail step by step. It will take your clients from chic weddings to big nights out.
Start by prepping your locks with Cloud Nine’s Magical Quick Dry Potion. This hair hero not only works to protect your hair against heat, but also reduces drying time by up to 50%.
Start by sectioning off the hair. Using The Touch Iron begin to curl your hair, leaving out the ends for a more textured look. Be sure to glide through these sections slightly quicker than you normally would to create loose waves full of texture.
Once you have curled all the hair, leave to cool for a few minutes then take the Luxury Texture Comb and loosen off the wave.
When all the hair is combed out, brush it back spraying a texturizing hair spray into the root to create height and texture.
Take the hair back into a midheight pony and secure with an elastic. Taking a section from the ponytail, wrap around and cover the hair elastic.
To finish, add extra texture around the face using The Micro Iron to pinch sections of the hair to manipulate into place. Here you can also take framing sections and add smaller waves.
This updo is perfect for clients who are slowly heading back into the world after lockdowns – it’s chic but still casual and cool which is one of the main hair trends we’re seeing in 2021.
