When you have short hair, ponytail hairstyles tend to look more like rabbit-tail hairstyles: short and tufty. To create a ponytail that says heading-to-a-party rather than heading-to-the-gym, try this.
1. Follow steps 1-2 above to get textured waves. Quickly twist-and-press the hair at the front of your face with Philips StraightCare Prestige Nutri Wonder straighteners, as before. Any hair that escapes your short ponytail will then nicely frame your face in shiny, nourished waves, instead of hanging flat.
2. Create a small braid. Take a small segment of hair from the front of your hair and braid it, working towards the back of your head. Secure with kirby grips and a little hairspray, so that the end lies down flat. If you can French-braid, so much the better, but if not, don’t worry about it.
3. Tie the rest back. Follow step 5 above to hide the hair band, if you like.
4. Fix with hairspray. Short hair has a tendency to make a break for it. Fix with spray to keep your look in place.
