EZ Beauty: Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Red Carpet Ponytail
If you have shoulder length or longer hair and are looking for an evening style, why not emulate Julia Louis-Dreyfus at the 2014 Golden Globes? A ponytail does not automatically equate to a look for the gym or harried mornings when you don’t have time to actually groom. As the 53-year-old funny lady proved, pulling your hair off your face lends a fun, spirited vibe to your look.
The hairstyle is quite forgiving and more relaxed than the super sleek looks we often see on the runway. It features a full, textured ponytail and a bit of volume at the crown.
1. Start with freshly washed and conditioned hair. Carefully squeeze and lightly towel dry with minimal rubbing or pulling then comb through with a wide tooth comb to allow the natural wave and texture come back.
2. Apply a generous amount of Wella Professionals Extra Volume Mousse evenly starting in the nape and working forward, then with the wide tooth comb from before, gently comb through ensuring an even distribution roots to tips.
3. Gently dry hair on a low heat using a diffuser, encouraging the natural waves especially around the face, and lifting the roots on the crown until the hair is almost dry—a little ‘cold’ to the touch.
4. Apply a few drops of Wella Professionals Oil Reflections at this stage with fingertips all over. It really sends the shine factor into over drive. Continue diffusing the hair until dry.
