Karlie Kloss, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Heidi Klum, AND Taraji P. Henson all rocked ponytails at the 2016 AMAs on Nov. 20. Read expert tips on how to rock the easy and classic trend for yourself below!
A ponytail was once a “lazy” hairstyle, but now it’s cool, modern and the best thing about it — it’s super easy to do at home!
Celebrity hairstylist Tym Wallace created Taraji P. Henson‘s stunning ponytail using SheaMoisture’s new Argan Oil & Almond Milk Smooth & Tame collection. It works on any type of hair — fine, frizzy, straight, curly — it controls frizz but isn’t heavy and won’t weigh hair down.
He said: “When thinking about Taraji’s AMAs look, we wanted to do a look she has never done on the carpet. Three feet of hair — the perfect choice!”
Here’s how to get the effortless look seen on Taraji!
“1. Cleanse hair with SheaMoisture Argan Oil & Almond Milk Smooth and Tame Shampoo and Conditioner — use on both your natural hair and extensions. Let the extensions air dry to bring out the natural texture, without frizz or flyaways.
2. Before blow drying, apply a dime size amount of SheaMoisture Argan Oil & Almond Milk Smooth and Tame Blow Out Crème to hair.
3. After blow drying, mist SheaMoisture Argan Oil & Almond Milk Thermo-Protect Milk on hair. Then separate hair into small sections and silken using a 3/4 inch flat iron.
4. Create a strong center part and slick the hair into a low ponytail.
5. Wrap extensions around natural hair. Taraji is wearing True Indian True Signature in Indian Wavy. Tip: Let the extensions air dry to bring out the natural texture-without frizz or flyaways. The longer, the better! (Taraji is wearing 36 inches). Add SheaMoisture 100% Pure Argan Oil for luster and to keep hair frizz-free and smelling amazing all night long!”
