A pouf pony is a magical marriage of done up and functional. It's the last in our pony series (also featuring a posh half-up pony and a chic and sleek pony), and we're already calling dibs on this one for holiday parties.

Pureology Artistic Ambassador Natasha Sunshine shares how to achieve this pony.


STEP 1: Start with day-old hair. You can manage hair better when it hasn't been washed as recently. Spray Pureology Fresh Approach Dry Shampoo at roots, taking 1-inch parting sections starting at the hairline and finishing at the crown. Brush product through hair for a satin finish.

STEP 2: Spray Fresh Approach Dry Condition from mid-shaft to ends. Brush Product through for max shine.

STEP 3: Tease hair from hairline to crown in 1-inch sections. Using a natural bristle brush, gently smooth hair into a high half-pony. Secure with an elastic.

STEP 4: Place a thumb on each side of the head at the back of the earlobe. Run thumbs to center of head to get the next section and secure with an elastic. Hide elastic with 1/4-inch section from underneath the pony and secure with a bobby pin.

STEP 5: Pull remaining hair into a low pony and hide the elastic after securing. Either leave the last section loose or use a clear elastic to pull hair together. Finish with Pureology Strengthening Control Mist.
