You Will Need
- Medium length or longer hair
- A brush or comb
- A ponytail holder
- A curling iron or hot rollers
- Bobby pins
Prep your hair
Start with slightly dirty hair; freshly washed locks are difficult to control.
Make a high ponytail
Brush or comb your hair into a very high ponytail on top of your head, and secure it with a ponytail holder.
Make some waves
Taking a small section of ponytail at a time, create soft curls with either a curling iron or hot rollers.
Let curls cool
Let the curls cool for a few minutes.
Using your fingers, make a loop out of each curled or braided section, tucking the tip under the ponytail base and securing with a bobby pin.
Give your style staying power with a final spritz of hairspray.
