STEP 1

Prep damp hair with K Beauty Volumizing Mousse, Christophe Robin Volumizing Mist and create a center part.

STEP 2

Use a Dyson hairdryer and your fingers to rough dry the roots. Once the roots are dry, brush through mid-shaft to ends with a Mason Pearson brush. For added hold, spray a generous amount of Ouai Texturizing Spray.

STEP 3

Split the hair horizontally into a top and bottom section.

STEP 4

Pull the top section into a high, top of the head ponytail and secure with a hair bungee. 

STEP 5

Next, use a Mason Pearson or similar brush to brush the bottom section to the top and secure with a BLAX hair elastic.

STEP 6

Once the hair is secure, apply Ouai Hair Oil to the ponytail, split the pony into two sections, tie the hair into a knot, and secure with french hair pins. Take the remaining ends and wrap into the knotted bun and secured once again with french hair pins.

STEP 7

When the bun is secure, detail pieces with your fingers, pulling out strands at the nape of the neck.

STEP 8

Finish the look with OUAI Dry Shampoo for a sleek yet messy finish!
