Step 2: Flip hair upside down and pull it up into a high ponytail. While your hair is still flipped upside down, smooth out the ponytail and brush out any bumps. Tightly secure the ponytail with a hair tie at the top of your head.

Step 3: Pull the shaft of the ponytail to the side of your head, just above the ear. Get more volume by teasing the ponytail at the roots. Once you’ve got the volume and texture, secure the poofed-up ponytail right above the ear with bobby pins. Add a unique accent by adding a decorative hair pin or barrette over the bobby pins. Set the look in place with hair spray.
