If you’re wearing a dress with gorgeous detailing around the neck or have second-day hair that doesn’t want to co-operate, the best thing you can do is pull it all up into a sleek, fuss-free ponytail like AnnaLynne McCord at the Breakthrough of the Year Awards. It’s not like the ponytails you did in primary school; this one has an extra dose of sex appeal. Kelly Grant from Our Place Salon in Potts Point gives us her tips:
STEP 1: Dirty hair is best for this hairstyle, but if you’re working with clean hair, spray your roots with KMS California Flatout Straightening Crème ($37.50) and your mid-lengths to ends with KMS California Hairplay Sea Salt Spray ($36.95) for raw texture.
STEP 2: Separate your hair into two sections by parting it from ear to ear (imagine you’re doing a half-ponytail). Work with the back section first, brushing the hair with a natural bristle brush towards the crown and finishing off with a hair tie. Then take the front section and brush back to the crown and tie off over the first ponytail. Doing it in two sections will give you more control on achieving the sexy, secure look.

Follow these steps and you’ll have AnnaLynne’s hair in no time. Sadly it may require a little more work to snag Kellan.
