How To: Rockstar Ponytail

This post is sponsored by Global Influence Network on behalf of Tresemme. 

Ever since I purchased this utility vest, I feel like my sense of style has gotten a little more edgy. This includes my overall look, too. i've been rocking a smokey eye more often and transform my hair from wearing it in its usual style. Typically, I either leave it down straight or use hot curlers to give it lots of volume and curl. Lately, I've been keeping the volume, but wearing my hair in a ponytail that parallels popular hairstyles on the red carpet. 

After showering, I use Tresemme's Split End Remedy on my hair to ensure it remains healthy. No one likes hair full of split ends! Once my hair is dry, I use Tresemme's Dry Shampoo and Hairspray to create my new 'do. 

Step 1: Separate the top portion of your hair from the bottom portion. Put the bottom portion in a ponytail that sits on the crown of your head.

Step 2: Take small1" sections of the top portion and spray the roots with Tresemme's Dry Shampoo. Use a teasing comb to tease your hair. Do this to the entire top portion of your hair. Don't know how to tease your hair? Check out Ashley's tutorial

Step 3: Look cray cray!

Step 4: Smooth hair back towards the ponytail. Secure hair with bobby pins and spray with Tresemme Hairspray. You can also wrap the tail around the base of the ponytail to cover the holder. 

Enter for your chance to win a Tresemme prize pack; here's how:

Step 1: Snap a picture of your "before" hair.
Step 2: Style and transform your look!
Step 3: Capture your "after" hairstyle.
Step 4: Use a photo collage app or side-by-side photo app to post your photo to Instagram using the hashtag #TresemmeTransformation.

  4. That Tresemme dry shampoo gives me life. I kid you not it's the best stuff on the market and dirt cheap compared to some other ones out there. You look great, I love the volumized pony look and you definitely rock it girl! Side note- congratulations on the Au Pair job/ backpacking Europe. I can't wait to read about your adventures!

  5. I've never tried teasing with dry shampoo as well, thanks for the tip! Def going to try that!

  6. I love that rockstar ponytail! I would have never thought to tease it with dry shampoo!
