How to Get an Effortlessly Chic Textured Ponytail

How to Style a Textured Ponytail

Looking effortlessly natural is easily achievable with a bright face and a smile to match, but add a feminine textured ponytail, and you have it made. Rodney Cutler, the stylist responsible for Emma Watson's pixie cut, created a textured feminine look for the Spring/Summer 2011 Banana Republic show. To find out how to achieve the look at home, keep reading.

  • Spray a volumizer like Cutler Volumizing Spray ($21) on towel-dried hair.
  • Twist sections of hair while drying it with a blow-dryer.
  • When hair is dry, part your hair to the side, then pull it loosely into a ponytail at the nape of the neck. For a smooth look, secure the ponytail with elastic — the same shade as your hair.
  • Pull out a few pieces of hair at the top of the crown to create height. Don't worry about making it perfect — it should look a little messy.
  • To give hair more texture, apply Spray Redken 08 Wool Shake ($18) to the ponytail

i have no beef with the idea of the post... making a hot looking and messy looking pony tail. i dont think its supposed to make people think you really did it in a taxi either. 'effortlessly natural,' though? thats redundant isn't it. what you mean is effortlessly/naturally attractive, right?

Confused?! - some things just are what they are...a messy ponytail.

I don't get the point. Is this supposed to be planned yet look impromptu? As if you did your hair in the back of a taxi but you really didn't? And the bit about using elastic...but not just ANY elastic. It has to be the same color as your hair. How much time do people normally spend on their ponytails? Does anyone really spray styling products on just to do a ponytail? I've never worried about mine being too perfect. I just don't want chunks of hair falling down or odd parts showing up in my hair.
