Hair Inspiration: Looped-Under Ponytail ~ How to

As seen on the runway of Carolina Herrera this elegantly equestrian and simple updo is the perfect hair look for the upcoming holiday season. Love the fact that is simple yet super chic... totally effortless!

Here is the step by step:

1. Start with clean hair. If your hair is damaged or frizzy in texture, use a smoothing and conditioning oil or balm (backstage at Carolina Herrera, Orlando Pita used Morrocanoil Light) to help improve the quality and give it a natural looking shine.
2. Apply a styling cream (Pita used Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream) to dampened hair, then blow-dry it straight.
3. Part the hair in the middle and pull it into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. If your hair is fine, you can tease it a little for more volume then spray it with hairspray to hold it.
4. Loop the length of the ponytail under and secure with an elastic band, keeping one small section free. Using the fingers, mold the shape of the looped ponytail into a neat triangular shape.
5. Wrap the loose section of hair around the base of the ponytail, covering the elastic. Pin it in place.
6. Finish with hairspray to hold.

..and voila you simple & chic hair-do for this holiday season! I can totally see wearing this on the 25th...or for some nice dinner with friends right before New years
