Richard’s Double Pony Step-By-Step
Part hair down the middle and divide into two even, 1-inch sections -- one on each side of the part, leaving out the front bangs
Beginning on one side, pull back hair into a ponytail, using Joico Power Spray to help hold hair in place against the head. Secure first ponytail with a hair tie.
Repeat on the other side.
Take out a small piece of hair from the ponytail, and wrap it around the base to camouflage the hair tie. Apply Power Pray for extra holding power.
Using a curling iron, add curls to each ponytail in 1 – 1 ½ inch sections.
Line small clips (your choice of style) along the top of the head, starting behind the bangs and working your way back towards the ponytail.
Tease each pony using a brush, combing backwards towards the head to give hair volume and lift.
Gently brush through to soften and loosen up the waves.
Finish with additional Power Spray as needed.
