Making ponytail

1. Make a ponytail

Collect your hair into a high ponytail at the top of your head, leaving your bangs or face-framing hair out.

2. Curl small sections

Grab small sections from the ponytail and curl with your Dyson Airwrap.

Keep going until the entire ponytail is curled.

3. Curl your face-framing hair

Pull the curled ponytail back and let it cool. Then curl your face-framing hair (or bangs).

Then wrap this hair up in a self-gripping roller and let it hang out for a bit above your forehead.

Removing ponytail

4. Remove your ponytail

Remove the hair tie and check out how your hair looks.

I have a feeling that for people with finer hair, this method will give more of a curl, but for me it’s more of a blowout look.

It’s giving a very voluminous blowout! If I had a lot less hair, it would probably give me way more curls, but I like the vibe. I would do this again!
