Sharing is caring!

Hey guys! Today I have this ultra-chic voluminous half up ponytail hair tutorial I would like to share with you today that’s inspired by Ariana Grande. It’s actually a fun twist of the half up ponytail for you to try. The look was done by Ariba Pervaiz who’s a contributor for Latest Hairstyles.

Here’s how she came up with the technique:

This ‘do is ideal for those days I want to wear my hair down and still add a bit of interest. The “V” shape parting adds just the right amount of edge to this playful hairstyle. The elastic in the pony is seamlessly concealed with the help of a strong hold hairspray. I learned this technique while working backstage at Toronto Fashion Week and I am super excited to share it with you! This half up pony works great with straight or curly hair. In this tutorial I will be creating texture in the form of bouncy waves. Let’s get started!
