Trends To Watch

Favorite Festival Look Ever

My all-time favorite festival look is this “topsy” pony.

Get The Look

1. Prepare the hair by spraying Hot Sexy Hair Protect Me throughout.
2. Crimp from roots to ends with Sexy Hair’s Texture Lock Pro Ceramic Crimper.
3. Divide the hair in half down the center from front to back. Starting on one side at the front hairline, create a small section approximately 2’’ from the hairline and secure with an elastic.
4. Take a large piece of brightly colored synthetic hair and secure the middle of the strand onto the same elastic near the hairline.
5. Pull the elastic back slightly to create space to loop the ponytail up and through the hair on top of the elastic, creating a “topsy” ponytail.
6. Puff Big Sexy Hair Powder Play Lite into the section and expand, exposing the brightly colored hair.
7. Repeat this all the way down to the ends and secure with an elastic, then repeat on the opposite side.
8. Finish with Healthy Sexy Hair So Touchable Hairspray for a soft but secure finish.
