Messy Pony Tail Tutorial with T3


With scarf weather officially here one of my favorite ways to wear a scarf is to have my hair is a voluminous pony tail. On day 2-3 of post "wash hair day" throwing my hair in a curly pony is a) easy to do and b) cute for any outfit! When T3 sent me some new products to try out I knew that the defined curls 1' barrel would be perfect for this look! The reason why I have fallen in love with T3 is because their products don't damage my extensions, and that you can buy multiple barrels to go with the adapter. 


I first start off by brushing my hair so that it's clear of any knots . On the days where I have fresh hair I blow out my hair first with the T3 blow dryer, and then curl after my blow out. Their blow dryer is MY FAVORITE!!! On the days where my hair isn't clean I'll use the Pureology Fresh Approach Dry Shampoo to give me roots an extra boost of life. (Notice Django doing his photobomb, by getting into my gym bag lol).


I divide my hair into three sections, and start from the bottom to the top. When I curl my hair I curl away from from face, and loosen up the barrel grip when I know the curl is close to being done (4 seconds). Once the curl is done I unclamp the barrel, and pull the barrel down allowing the curl to fall down. Since I have beaded extensions I don't curl too high so I don't interfere with the bead bond. 


Once I curled my whole head I'll then finger comb the curls to loosen them up. 


To give some volume at the crown I'll then tease my hair with a brush. 


I'll take my hair and loosely pull it behind my head, and take a hair tie to tie it in place. I'm all about things not looking perfect, and keeping it a little messy looking. 


I will then loosen up the hair around the crown to give it some volume by holding onto the back of my head, and using the pressure of my thumbs to push up the hair. For a little bit more volume I'll keep doing that around the hair tie. 

   
To hide the hair tie I'll take a strand of hair, and wrap it around the hair tie. I'll then secure the hair by taking a bobby pin underneath the hair tie.

This hair style is seriously so easy, and such a fun way to show off a fall scarf or some bold earrings!

  3. Great idea!

    At my gym (which has a much older clientele), all the long haired women seem to be about stick straight, every hair in place, tightly pulled back in a high ponytail.

    You've encouraged me to try something like this. I have a ton of hair as well and it can be most unruly. High ponytails pull and are painful and I've never thought this style to be cute or becoming on me.

    I think your style of pony will be flattering and youthful.

    1. oh I can't do high pony tails because I have a calic on the back of my head, and high pony tails make it hurt with all the hair weight pulling at it.

      Since I have beaded extensions the super slick back doesn't really work lol
