The Breakdown: DIY Ariana Grande's Ponytail at Home

  1. Start by spraying Herbal Essences Tea-Lightfully Clean Blow Dry Prep Mist ($4) on damp hair for lightweight conditioning and heat protection.
  2. Blow-dry with a nylon-bristled brush to smooth out the texture.
  3. Flip head over, and with a boar-bristled brush, brush all hair toward the highest point of the head — spray the Herbal Essences Naked Flexible Hold Spritzer ($7) to get rid of flyaways.
  4. Once hair is smoothed into a ponytail, secure with a strong hair tie.
  5. Take random-sized pieces from the ponytail, and wrap them around a two-inch curling iron to give the ponytail amazing texture.
  6. Take a small section of hair from underneath the ponytail, and wrap it around the hair tie, securing with a bobby pin at the base of the ponytail.
  7. Finish by spraying Herbal Essences Set Me Up Max Hold Hairspray ($6) around the perimeter of the head for a smooth finish.
