Step 1: Prep hair with Dream Coat for a sleek & shiny start. This anti-humidity spray is necessary to keep this look sleek and frizz-free. Create a clean center part using a rat tail comb.
Step 2: Starting on the left side of the part, take a 1-1.5 inch section parting with a comb in a straight line from the part to the edge of the hairline.
Step 3: Spray the section with Cult Favorite Hairspray and gather into a ponytail. Secure with a clear elastic. Cult Favorite hairspray is key for secure hold without any crunch or dulling color.
Step 4: Repeat section-by-section until you have 6 ponytails going from the front of the head to the base of the neck. Take care to keep the bases of the ponytail in line.
Step 5: Starting on the left side of the part, take the first ponytail closes to the forehead and smooth on One-Minute Transformation cream. This creates a smooth and polished finish for each pigtail and is imperative to getting keep this sleek look in line.
Step 6: Split the section in 2, taking each section around the next ponytail in line on the head and securing to the 3rd ponytail behind it with a clear elastic.
Step 7: Pull on the teardrop shape you’ve created to exaggerate little “bubbles.” Repeat the process all the way down the head. Move onto the second ponytail. Split, skip, secure.
Step 8: Spray liberally with Cult Favorite to seal in the style without freezing the hair or creating a cloudy cast on the color.
