THE LOOK Soft and imperfect
HOW-TO "I gathered Leighton's hair at the nape of the neck and created a ropey ponytail by taking two sections and twisting them in opposite directions so they'd wrap into each other," says stylist Charles Baker Strahan. Alternating from the left and right sides of the head (like you would when French braiding) he added loose twists to the ponytail. He finished with pins and a mist of hairspray.
INSIDER TRICK "Instead of twisting all the hair back, leave out some face framing tousles to soften the look," he says.
