STEP 1 I prepped the hair and saturated it with Techni.ART Full Volume Extra Mousse and loads of Tecni.ART Beach Waves Salt Spray to add a gritty texture. Then, I blow-dried the front hairline and the entire hairline up at the sides and back and back at the top (in the direction I wanted to place the ponytail). This is the most important aspect, as it makes the messy top knot look styled and gives the base more direction and hold. Then, I hand dried the rest of the hair to give it a rough, undone, messy texture. STEP 2 To give it a more modern high- fashion look, I used a brush to bring the hair up into a high ponytail at the top of the head and tied it with a hair bungee. Then, using my hands, I rubbed the hair at the base of the ponytail to loosen and fluff up some of the hair while still keeping the majority of the hair bushed in the direction of the ponytail. Then I carefully pulled out a few tiny wispy hairs around the front—nothing too long, just those fine short hairs. STEP 3 Next, I added a bit of Tecni.ART Morning After Dust Dry Shampoo. Then, in large sections, I back combed the hair to double the volume. This is an important step if the hair is fine. Then, I used a bit of Tecni.ART Air Fix Hair Spray. STEP 4 I looped the ponytail and wrapped the rest of the ends near the base of the ponytail, pinning it with bobby pins to secure it. Then, I pulled the knot into a messy shape with width and height. STEP 5 Using some fine pins, I secured any loose edges of the knot to keep it in place, then misted with more Tecni.ART Air Fix Hair Spray. N ot a m e m b e r ?
