The Perfect,
Quick Updated Ponytail

Despite having a job where I am meant to be presentable in public, I am wholly unskilled in the arena of doing my hair and makeup. I work with a fantastic hairdresser here in London, George Northwood (who also does hair for people like Alexa Chung and Rosie Huntington-Whitely), who offered to demonstrate how DIY hair is not as tricky as we think.


Step 1: Take a few sections at the crown and back comb using a small detangling comb to create volume at the back.

Step 2: Comb a section right over the crown to hide the back-combed hair.

Step 3: Now make a low ponytail. Coil a small section of hair from the ponytail around the ponytail elastic and tuck it in.

Goop would like to give a very special thank you to George Northwood.
