Video: How To Get The Perfect Ponytail

The moment I first looked at the images from our Amsterdam shoot, one stood out as an immediate favorite. The image above left, with a girl wearing a pretty dress and her hair in a perfect ponytail. And by perfect, I mean it has just the right amount of carefree looseness to it, like she just did it herself and it only took her a minute.  For some reason, when I put my hair in a ponytail, it never seems to look that effortless.  So, when we had the hairstylist responsible for this look, Amy Farid, in our office, we asked her to share her tips on how to achieve the perfect ponytail like the one pictured in our catalog. We love this breezy look for spring!

I had never actually seen a “bungee” before Amy used one on my hair! I usually stick with the plain old hair elastic, but I also love our Elastic Hair Ties. In the video I’m wearing the Dip Dye Long Sleeve Tunic.

This is a very great video, thank you for posting! It looks very pretty, and it’s great for any day or occasion. By the way, in the top right photo, you kind of look like Zooey Deschanel, with your fringe and dark hair. :)

I would love a video or post on the stylist’s favorite tools like brushes, combs etc! I would love to do this look. I’m curious on the brush she used. My hair is on the thicker end and most brushes make it poofy. Love the vid!
