How to Get an Effortlessly Chic Textured Ponytail

How to Style a Textured Ponytail

Rodney Cutler, the stylist responsible for Emma Watson's pixie cut, created a textured feminine look for the Spring/Summer 2011 Banana Republic show.

  • 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.

  • To give hair more texture, apply Spray Redken 08 Wool Shake ($18) to the ponytail
