Tucked over ponytailThe looped pony has always been a lazy solution for sweaty days. But when Diane Kruger stepped out wearing this elegant version, we were shocked to see how a cute ponytail could instantly become an ultra chic, upside down chignon.
How-to: "Begin by using your fingers to rake hair off your face and into a ponytail at the crown," says Kris Sorbie, education artistic director at Redken 5th Ave. "This gives the surface an organic feel." Next, cover the elastic by wrapping a small section of hair around the base, tucking ends underneath. "Lightly backcomb the ponytail for volume and roll the ends outwards and upwards to the top of the crown," says Sorbie. "Pin ends at the base and gently tug ponytail for a fanned out effect." Finish with a healthy mist of hairspray to keep all strands in place.
