Blake Lively called on Rod Ortega to create her special "Triple Pony" for the Met Gala in NYC. Although it didn't look too dynamic from the front, the back was one of the best looks that night.

To achieve the look, Ortega blew the hair completely dry (he used the T3 Evolution LongLife) and then created loose waves (he used the T3 BodyWaver).

1. Separate the hair in three: the crown, the back of the head along the occipital and the nape.

2. Using clear, thin elastic bands, secure each section at the base.

3. Loop each section through and repeat in each ponytail.
