How to Achieve a Snatched Ponytail
There are a couple ways to get your snatched ponytail on point. Both require a hair brush and just a little bit of perseverance as your arms may get tired trying to secure your hair!
Before starting the process of putting your hair up, it’s important to tame your flyaways and frizz with a spritz of S Factor by TIGI Smooth Silky Serum. This will ensure that your look isn’t going to be compromised with some damaged hair peeping out.
Now that your hair is prepped, it’s time to start gathering your hair for the snatched ponytail. If you choose to go the hairspray route, then the main strategy is to gather your hair and spray the hairspray as you go. You want to continue to do this before you secure your hair so that the hairspray is working to smooth and flatten your strands. If you only use the hairspray at the end and then smooth out your hair, you will have already secured the ponytail and will be left with bumps. Remember: spray a little and brush, spray a little and brush, and only secure once it’s flat and to your liking. TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Texture Hold Level 1 is a great choice as it has a strong hold but will still be easy to brush through as your gather your hair.
Using Hair Gel
If you want a more slicked back texture and a wet vibe, then hair gel is the product for you. Hair gel will give your snatched ponytail a sleek and shiny look. The strategy for hair gel is to apply the gel at the root of your hair and comb it through before gathering your hair. Once it’s to your liking, brush and gather your hair tightly into a high ponytail. Once your hair is secure, you can add more gel to make it look wetter push down any baby hairs that might’ve escaped.
