While it’s easy to want to throw your hair up in a ponytail, the actual process of doing it brings out the perfectionist in all of us. But thanks to the inspirational hair seen at Chloe Spring ’13, plus the right products, we can show you how to get this low loop pony that’s messy chic (emphasize the messy) in five minutes or less.
1. Use your fingers. The best way to texture your tresses is simply using your fingers. Manipulate your hair by separating pieces to add some romance to your look.
2.Use a little dry shampoo. If your hair is tied back, you’ll want to rid your hair of any oily residue. Work in some dry shampoo that will add extra texture and revive flat roots. Ojon Full Detox Rub-Out Dry Cleansing Spray ($13-$24)
3. Add some lift. Not only will a teasing spray give some body to your hair, it will also leave a matte finish and add long-lasting hold. Redken Style Connection Quick Tease 15 hairspray ($18)
4. Elasticity is key. The low messy loop pony is doable with the help of durable elastic. For a slide-proof look, stick to elastics that will give you a secure hold without sacrificing your chic style. Goody Slide-Proof Secure Fit Elastics ($3.99)
5. Don’t expect perfection. Loose pieces and uneven loops are what make this look truly messy chic.
