How To: A Plump Ponytail

The plumped-up ponytail is basically the same as a regular pony, but if you're looking for a unique way to give it your own special oomph, you can add a little bit of height to the front and some volume to the back.

This creates an overall dressier and more polished look. To find out how to re-create the same beautiful look as Emmanuelle Chriqui in just a few simple steps,


  • Step 1: Apply a palmful of mousse into towel-dried hair. Use your hand to scrunch your hair to give it more volume.
  • Step 2: Then, back-comb or tease your hair at the crown until you reach your desired height and gently brush it over to smooth hair out using a boar-bristle brush.
  • Step 3: Now it's time to gather your hair into a ponytail and secure it at the back of your head just above your eye brows with an elastic band or cord.
  • Step 4: Tease the ponytail and then apply a light hold gel to the ends. When you are finished, mist your entire head with hairspray and scrunch a little bit more before it dries.
