The Textured Ponytail Hair Tutorial


I’m admittedly a “hair down” kind of girl, but I do think textured ponytails pair really well with turtleneck sweaters. And after recently finding some pretty sweaters from Express, I thought it would be a perfect time to film an updated tutorial.

You can watch the video below to learn how to get this look, but the key is starting with some texture or bend in your hair to get a similar result.

Watch this to learn how to curl your hair, or watch this to see how I add texture and definition!

My favorite texture powder at the moment is by Virtue, but there are a lot of similar options out there as well. If you are more of a texture spray kind of girl, my favorite is the Un.Done Volume and Matte texture spray from Amika.

As far as other tools go, a medium classic hair tie like this one from Gimme Beauty, and clear elastics, are what you’ll need to hold the ponytail. It also helps to have a good comb for backcombing.

The secret is in using two separate ponytail holders! It creates the nicest foundation and support for a volumized and bouncy ponytail.

    Love the look but I have really thin hair. I have about as much hair on my whole head as what you did in just your first pony. Any tips?

    I’m so bad with hair so I’ve found your videos SUPER helpful. I love this one as I always have to have my hair pulled back for work!

    In terms of texture spray or powder, when would you use it if you were curling your hair? Would you use it before or after? Would it depend on your hair/personal preference?

      I use it after the hair is curled, while I’m styling it, before hairspray.
