's sexy style involves just a looped ponytail and a few loose strands. To recreate her 'do, begin by sectioning out bangs and a few pieces along the front hairline. Next, backcomb hair through the crown to create a lot of volume.
Then, collect hair into a ponytail right behind and slightly above the right ear. Secure tresses with a hair elastic, but instead of drawing hair completely through the hair elastic, pull the ponytail through only halfway so that it forms a large loop.
Loosen a few strands and take out a few pieces and add some texture with a curling iron. Also, give the hair around the face a little curl, too. To finish the look, sweep bangs across the forehead and mist the entire style with hairspray.
