Here are Ted’s tips to get-the-look – fresh from the runway:

  1. Spray build it blow drying agent on roots and blow dry straight with a round brush.
  2. Part hair in a clean center part, flat iron, then spray a flat brush with beautiful hold hairspray and brush hair.
  3. Back comb hair starting from 2.5” inches from the face, pinch back combed hair, then lightly brush hair back into very low pony tail.
  4. Pull soft fringe out at the front of the hair and use a bungee elastic to make ponytail.
  5. Use rat tail comb to pull up bouffant at the top of the head and spritz beautiful hold hair spray everywhere to give hair a sexy, undone texture.
  6. Twist pony into messy but secure low bun resting on the hairline.
  7. Secure with bobby pins.
