Adding volume to every bun, braid, and ponytail has been the look of the season, and considering the effortless feel of the latter we’re not walking any red carpets anytime soon! we called in freelance hair stylist Mauricio Cifuentes to show us how to spice up our ponytails for a night out on the town. Follow the steps below and try the look for yourself:

To add volume to your ponytail, take the end of your comb and loosen the taughtness of your pony, adding height. Finish with a touch of hairspray to get rid of any stray hairs.
