Step 3: Apply generous amounts of the Extra-Body Sculpting Foam on the roots 

Step 4: Brush through with a teasing brush and retie your pony 

Step 5: Take a small strand from the back of your pony and spray with Extra-Body Finishing Hairspray

Step 6: Wrap around the pony and dry in place 

Step 7: Divide your ponytail in two equal parts and twist one over the other

Step 8: Pull a little after every few twists to fatten the twist and secure with an elastic

Step 9: Finish off with Extra-Body Finishing Hairspray 

Step 10: Use a flat iron to create waves for the front section
