A year or two ago, I would have seen a hairstyle like this and thought "I would never wear my hair like that." Now it's like, my favourite. The best way for me to get it right on my own hair is tons of dry shampoo for a nice gritty, dry texture at the roots and fine backbrushing with a boar hair bristle brush before tying it up. #halfup #longhair

MASON PEARSON HAIR BRUSH Before we met the Mason Pearson, we never knew the full potential of a hairbrush. Its boar bristles detangle and smooth for perfect, shiny, shampoo-commercial hair (with zero static). Even hairstylists guard theirs backstage. "I don't leave my Mason Pearson unattended," says Hawkins. "There's magic in it." - Allure Mag's 50 Beauty Products to Buy Before You Die
HIGH, HALF-UP PONYTAIL "The height of the ponytail elongates her face and complements her cheekbones beautifully," says Rush. You can re-create this look using a two-inch curling iron to give the hair a slight bend before bringing the front section up into a high ponytail with an elastic. Finish by smoothing out the top with a boar-bristle paddle brush, like a Mason Pearson. "This will give it a baby-soft feel and take away the severity of the height."
Side braid (left) to side bun (right). The bun can be created by separating the ends of the hair, looping and pin down each one. So cute! I just do this hairstyle with a normal braid and I'll work up to the more difficult braid!
