Things You'll Need

  • Elastic hair ties
  • Bobby pins
  • Hair spray
  • Gold headpiece (optional)

Gather two front sections of hair on each side, about 1 to 2 inches wide.

Tie hair into a ponytail, leaving the two front sections of hair to hang.

Fasten a clear, elastic band approximately two-thirds of the way down your ponytail to add volume and shape to your updo. For added glamour, incorporate a few small braids into this hairstyle on either side.

Scrunch the remaining hair and one section at a time, fasten to the top of your head to create a voluminous, messy updo. If your hair is extremely straight, use a curling iron to add waves to your strands.

Tease the front two sections of hair at the root and sweep back to create more volume up top.

Spritz a moderate amount of hairspray to hold. To add a lovely dose of glitz, use a hairspray that contains flecks of glitter.

Add a sparkly gold headband or other accessory like leaf-shaped bobby pins to put a unique goddess like twist on this incredibly chic hairstyle.
