Easy Hairstyling Tips from Philip Pelusi
Pelusi teamed up with Ben Cho for his spring fashion show to bring cutting-edge and modern hairstyles. Now, Pelusi is offering his styling tips to you.

Messy Twist

Step 1- Brush out a bang section and secure back with two bobby pins. Loosen a bit with your fingers by tugging at the hairline.

Step 2- There is section of hair over each ear. Run your index finger from behind your left ear up to the crown of your head. Smooth this section of hair into a low ponytail behind your left ear then twist the pony twice toward the back of your head. Secure the remaining tail with bobby pins, then repeat on the right side. Connect the two twists with a bobby pin.

Step 3- Roll a messy section of hair up around your fingers to create a twist under the bobby pins. Pinch it and then slip it off your fingers and secure with bobby pin. Repeat with remaining hair until it's all pinned up. Mist with hairspray.
 
Side-swept Bun

Step 1- Make a deep side part and apply shine serum, getting rid of all the flyaways.

Step 2- Then gather your hair into a low side pony and secure with hair elastic.

Step 3- Wrap the ponytail towards your ear into a bun and then secure with hair stick, this will hold the bun in place.
 
Volumized Ponytail

Step 1- Split the hair into a front portion and a back portion and pin. Then with the remaining hair tease it towards your scalp, creating a bouffant.

Step 2- Then undo the pinned section and smooth it over the teased hair and gather into low ponytail.
