Step by step
Spray the whole of your hair with hairspray and brush through. Divide your hair into two sections, top and bottom. Dampen your hair then apply mousse to the bottom section of the hair and brush through again. Using a comb, gather hair into a ponytail position. Twist the hair between your fingers, applying mousse as you go, until it starts to twist back on itself then tuck hair into a tight chignon and secure with grips. Glam up the top section of your hair by teasing it through onto the top of your chignon. Take the remaining hair, twist it and secure it with a grip then finish off with hairspray.
Have several gos to make sure the height of your ponytail gives a natural-looking effect.
