Saturday – The wrapped pony – You’ll need some string or thick thread for this one but it makes the prefect party style.

Smooth polishing balm through the ends of your hair for serious shine!

Wednesday – The high pony – Prep hair with a sea-salt spray to add texture and waves to the ends. Create a ponytail high up on your head and secure with a band. Take a small section of hair and wrap it round and round the band to cover it, clip the end underneath and secure with a Kirby grip.
