Step by step: The segmented ponytail

We have been seeing the segmented ponytail everywhere lately, from Heidi Klum to Blake Lively. It is fresh, fun and bold! Learn how to create this cool hair style with our simple step by step guide.

First off, start with hair that’s been air-dried for natural texture. Spray in some dry shampoo for more texture to work with.



1 Pull the crown of your hair, and the side hair above your ears high in the back of your head into a ponytail. Secure with a thin elastic band and repeat with new segments of hair the further down you get.






To add volume, gently push each segment up until hair bulges. Repeat for every step.







Take a small section of hair from the formed ponytail and wrap it around the base. Pin into place.





Repeat the above process with the remaining sections of hair. Finish off with hairspray, which will provide the necessary hold and add lustre.



There you have it. A fun bold segmented ponytail!
