Inspired Look: Lala High Pony (Protective Styling)

Inspired Look: Lala High Pony (Protective Styling)

I first saw this look on and although Lala is in the background, I was drawn to her hairstyle! Many of the straight ponytail looks are too full, too shiny, or too long.  This one is PERFECT!  It is by Urban Beauty, I bought it at my local BSS for $9.99.  The picture online is kind of deceiving though, it makes it look wider and fuller than it is.  In reality it is a very natural thickness with some very subtle layering, the way a real ponytail would look.  And it does not have that “synthetic shiny” look that some phony ponies have.
My process was to wash, DC, airdry 50% with leave in, slick up into a ponytail using Bee Mine Curly Butter with a little bit of Ecostyler gel to my edges.  I prevously wore my bangs down and swooped to the side for this ponytail look.  To prep for this style I sprayed ApHogee Keratin & Green Tea followed by avocado oil then rolled the bang backwards on a large roller overnight.  The next morning, I removed the roller,pulled the bang backwards and slightly to the side to form a small “hump” in the front; Then pinned it around the bun then applied the drawstring ponytail.  I love this look!
I thought I was facing the same direction as LaLa for a great “who wore it better” type look.


How much do you love these earrings?!  Very Basketball Wife-ish…
Picked them up at an African Street Festival!
Stay tuned…I have something very special coming up for you from
Me’Shell Nicole Jewelry

I will probably play with the different heights and looks with this ponytail…there are quite a few possibilities:
  • Pretty!! Who said ponytails can’t be sophisticated and elegant.

  • Girl! That ponytail is bad! I want myself one!

    And I can’t wait til I get to TBL because the absolute FIRST style I’m rocking is the extra long, silky straight, wrapped ponytail!

    …and…does Kim K trim her nape hairs? :-s They’re eerily even.

  • This style is very cute. Now normally, I am not a fan of ponytails, but like MyHHJ stated above you are definitely rocking them with class. Very nice again!

  • oooohhhh i wanna try this style…btw…check out my last post 🙂
