Hi, I'm Summer Spence, I'm here at the Wedding Cottage Hawaii, and I'm going to show you how to do a formal ponytail for a bride or prom. You'll need a rubber band, bobby pins, alligator clip, hairspray, curling iron and a round brush. So to begin, I just curled the very bottom of the hair to give it a little bit of a wave. And you wanna start combing the hair into one hand. We're going to do a low ponytail, making sure the hair is smooth. You can spray, and then smooth with your hands. We're gonna take our elastic, holding very tightly, to the ponytail with this hand, you're gonna work your other hand around it. Taking a section of hair, a very small section of hair from the bottom, spray it, so it's smooth, and you're going to take that and wrap that around the rubber brand, spraying as you go. Then you're gonna take your bobby pin, and then you're going to secure it underneath the ponytail so you don't see it. You might want to secure it with two bobby pins, depending on how thick the hair is. Smoothing the ponytail, and following the wave, the natural wave pattern. I'm Summer Spence, and I just showed you how to do a formal ponytail for bridal or prom.
