A girl can never go wrong with the classic ponytail. Whether you’re going to work, brunch or running errands, it’s the perfect daytime look. It’s always fun to give the classics a twist, and for inspiration we’re looking to Olivia Wilde who added a banded style to her chic ponytail. Check out the easy steps below to recreate Olivia’s new ‘do thanks to the style gurus of Style Noted.
Step #1: Towel dry hair to damp.
Step #2: (IF YOU HAVE BANGS) Separate bangs with a comb, and blowdry straight down for a sleek, smooth look.
Step #3: Blowdry the rest of your hair using your hands to create volume.
Step #4: Pull hair back and gather into a high ponytail.
Step #5: Secure with an elastic.
Step #6: To create the banded effect, place a clear elastic every 1 inch down the ponytail. Then gently pull out each section a bit to get more body.
