What’s new about this ponytail?
Instead of going through the whole of the head, we’ve just crimped sections to add movement through the hair

How can we replicate the look at home?
Working with clean blowdried hair, use ceramics to straighten it out and then secure it into a side ponytail. Next take your crimper and randomly crimp through sections to give your style that distressed, textured feel.

What are the key products you need to recreate the style?
Heat protection is key. Use Mizani Thermasmooth Smooth Guard Smoothing Serum (£17.25/100ml) before blasting on the heat. And for all-day hold use Goldwell Style Sign Texture Pump Freezer (£9.45/200ml)
