Ponytail Round-up – Advise for the right ponytail for every occassion

The ponytail is a style that can take you anywhere; from the gym to work, a fancy dinner to climbing into bed. The last couple of seasons its ruled the runway and now more than ever. A ponytail is one of our favorite styles as it requires little time, it’s easy to style and there are endless ways to wear it. From full and bouncy, sleek and straight to low and flowing we’ve rounded up our favorite tutorials from the web and the best AVEDA products to achieve success. All of these tutorials are achieved with just a short list of tools!

1. Beautiful, Bouncy High Ponytail direct from the Salon!

What You’ll Need for this look – Hair Elastic – Bobby Pins – AVEDA Air Control HairSpray – AVEDA Pure Abundance Hair Potion – Hairbrush – Fine-Tooth Comb

High Ponytail AVEDA Salon Napa Valley SALA SalonStep 1: Give your hair some texture. If it’s freshly washed and a little too smooth, add some Pure Abundance Hair Potion. This formula transforms in your hands-from a powder to a light, absorbent lotion. It adds texture and increases strands’ diameter to create abundant volume. Allows your ponytail to stay in place all day long.

Step 2: Pull your hair towards the crown of your head. Keep in mind you want to be pulling up, not back. Hold it in place while smoothing out bumps.

Step 3: Once you have found the perfect ponytail placement (center of your head, visible from the front), it’s time to take your hair elastic and secure the pony into place.

Step 4: If this pony is taking you out, keep it looking chic by taking a 1 inch section of hair from underside and wrap it around elastic. Secure it with bobby pin under the ponytail to hide the elastic and pins.

Step 5: For some added volume and texture, tease the ponytail with a fine-tooth comb, gently combing hair upwards and towards the front. Finish with AVEDA’s Air Control Hair Spray, a flexible, lasting hold hair spray-for all hair types-that has a net-zero impact on the Earth’s climate – Look good and do good!
