Do you love popstar Ariana Grande’s sweet and sassy half-up half-down hairstyle? Thanks to our friends at Latest-Hairstyles.com, they’ve come up with this easy-to-follow hairstyle tutorial that will show you how to get her look. Learn how to do her chic half up ponytail in just a few simple steps.
“This ‘do is ideal for those days I want to wear my hair down and still add a bit of interest. The “V” shape parting adds just the right amount of edge to this playful hairstyle. The elastic in the pony is seamlessly concealed with the help of a strong hold hairspray. I learned this technique while working backstage at Toronto Fashion Week and I am super excited to share it with you! This half up pony works great with straight or curly hair. In this tutorial I will be creating texture in the form of bouncy waves. Let’s get started!”
Ariana Grande Inspired Hairstyle Tutorial:
Step 1: Create a diagonal parting starting at the center of your hairline, running back towards the crown on the right side.
Step 2: Create the same diagonal parting starting at the center point of your hairline and back towards the crown on the left side as well. Add a final horizontal parting to connect the two diagonal partings and create a triangular-shaped section.
Step 3: Tie off the triangle section with an elastic band.
Step 4: Place the ponytail forward and take a small section from the back of the ponytail. Tease the section several times. Continue teasing small sections of hair until the entire ponytail is teased.
Step 5: Take a small section from the ponytail and spray it generously with hairspray until it resembles a piece of ribbon. Wrap it around the elastic to conceal it.
Step 6: Generously spray hairspray to the ends of the section to secure it into place.
How simple is that?! In just 6 easy steps, you’ve mastered the art of re-creating the signature hairstyle that helped make Ariana Grande one of the current style stars of today’s times.
What’s great about this half-up half-down hairstyle is that it keeps your hair out of your face (which is perfect for hot, humid Summer days), but it still has a soft, romantic look.
