Your new favorite 'do for summer.
It's only a matter of time before our favorite hairstyle trends of the past start coming to the forefront again. The latest to do so? Side ponytails. A staple look in the '80s, side ponytails are making their way on the scene again! Here's how to nab the style:
Get the look
Step 1: After washing your hair in the evening, apply L'Oréal Professionnel Volume Envy Extra mousse to your damp strands. Next, tie your hair into a braid starting at the nape of your neck. Allow your hair to dry overnight.
Step 2: In the morning, untie the braid and gently run your fingers through your curls to break them up a bit.
Step 3: For matte, lived-in texture, spritz L'Oréal Professionnel Next Day Hair to the lengths and ends.
Step 4: Separate one small section of hair from the top of your head. This section of hair will be used to camouflage the elastic used to secure your ponytail.
Step 5: Flick your hair upside down and begin to gather your strands into a ponytail. Return to standing position and tie your hair up into a very high ponytail-think: just nearing your forehead-that's secured slightly to one side with a clear elastic.
Step 6: Retrieve the piece of hair you separated in step four. Wrap it around and over the base of the ponytail, discreetly tucking in the ends.
And there you have it! A modern take on a classic '80s style.
