It’s such a brave hairstyle decision — it could have easily gone wrong but it WORKS for her! It’s a perfect mix of girl next door and sexy!
Celebrity hairstylist, Mark Townsend, shares exactly what he did to create this sweet hairstyle for Dakota! He even shares his inspiration behind this simple ‘do!
“Working with Dakota has been such an incredible and inspiring experience. For the 2015 Oscars I wanted her hair to reflect her personality and style, and the Saint Laurent gown she chose to wear was very vibrant. We decided her hair should be off the dress, but not necessarily up, so I went for a young, cool ponytail. She has the most amazing fringe so we kept them down with some face framing layers to keep the style modern and perfectly imperfect.”
Here’s the step-by-step guide on how to recreate this ‘do!
“To create the look, I started by adding a few drops of Dove Youthful Vitality Silk Crème to her damp hair and blow dried with a Mason Pearson brush.”
“For texture and grip, I liberally sprayed Dove Refresh+Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo throughout her hair, then gathered it just above the occipital bone, securing with a tight elastic.”
“The key to dressing up a ponytail is in the details, so I pulled a small amount of hair from the ponytail, wrapped it around the base to hide the elastic, and secured with bobby pins.”
“To create additional texture I sprayed Sally Hershberger Glam Waves spray in my hands and raked it through the ponytail.”
“I finished by spraying Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray to add shine and keep her hair in place all night.”
There you have it! So what do you think of Dakota’s simple pony, HollywoodLifers? Let us know what you think!
