The Slick 'n' low
WORKS BEST FOR Straight, fine, shoulder-length hair.
HOW TO DO IT For an oh-so-now ponytail that's pulled to one side, begin with a blowout, using mousse and a holding spray on damp hair. Tease hair at the crown to create volume, then smooth the rest with a brush and twist into an off-center ponytail. Instead of an elastic, use a line of bobby pins on the underside of the twist, starting at the top and ending at the nape-you'll need at least 20. Side bangs add a flirty softness.
