FESTIVE HALF-UP PONY

BEFORE

AFTER

There’s no denying that sleek equals chic. Sophisticated and easy to style, this glossy half-up ponytail is oh-so simple and perfect for partying. Go all out and embellish the look with festive hair slides for added glamour. Don’t forget the all-important bevelled ends for that ‘90s vibe too!

STEP 2 – SECTION
Section the hair horizontally into two sections, beginning at the bottom of the head and work upwards.

Turn the ghd platinum+ styler a quarter turn inwards for a soft bevel on the ends of the hair.

STEP 5 – CONTINUE
Continue this technique throughout the hair until all hair is smooth and tucked.

STEP 6 – SECTION
Section the front of the hair into a large triangle, clip this up and out of the way.

STEP 7 – TIE

Finish the look by wrapping hair around the elastic and misting with ghd Perfect Ending Final Fix hairspray.
