5 Steps To Ariana!

Did you catch the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards last night? Ariana Grande and her trademark ponytail were there in fabulous, full-volume force, complete with new-this-summer fringe. The singer’s stylist, Aaron Light did the ‘do, and you can, too….

1. Start by applying a small amount of Matrix Style Link Blow Out Big Queen Cream to damp hair. Blow-dry bangs with a 1-inch round brush, then place them in a 1-inch roller to cool and keep the shape. TIP: If you don’t have rollers, wrap the hair around your finger and secure with a clip or bobby pin. Blow-dry the rest of the hair so it is silky and smooth.

2. Brush hair into a high pony tail on the top of the head and secure with a hook bungee. This will create a tight pony tail with no slippage. For thick hair, use two bungees.

3. Spread a dime-size amount of Matrix Style Link Shape Switcher onto fingertips and brush hands backward from the hairline to the pony tail to smooth any bumps and secure flyaways. Repeat with a barbering brush for extra smoothness.

4. Wrap a small piece of hair around the bungee and secure with a bobby pin. Spray pony tail with Matrix Style Link Mineral Rough Me Up Salt Infused Spray for texture. Remove roller from bangs and smooth as desired

5. To finish the look, take a few random pieces from the pony tail and using a crimping iron, crimp the hair from top to bottom. TIP: Dust finger tips with Matrix Style Link Mineral Booster Texture Booster and lightly run through sections before crimping for extra texture and volume.
