The Effect: Glossy and Undone
To make a messy ponytail more flattering, comb a nourishing, shine-enhancing oil through damp hair before blow-drying it; then skip the round brush and use just your fingers to get a tousled texture. Create a not-too-perfect side part, then gather hair into a low pony. Pull out a few strands around your face for a softening effect. At Lanvin, a final mist of shine spray added gloss (without the grease).
