3. BRUSHING UP
When pulling hair into a ponytail, "Don't flip your head over," advises Blackmore. "You don't get that much more volume, and you can't pay attention to centering it." Instead, brush hair into place with a paddle brush and secure the ponytail with a hair bungee elastic. "They don't pull as much as normal elastics, which can cause tension and breakage around the hairline," notes Blackmore.
MC TIP: Spritz your brush with hairspray before brushing it back to smooth would-be wispies.
