HOW TO: KHLOE-INSPIRED HALF PONY
We all know that Khloe is my favorite Kardashian, right? So it's no surprise that I try to perfect her styles — hair and fashion — on the weekly. She brought back a childhood fav but somehow made it look grown-up, sexy, and like a power pony. But how? Because a half-pony almost always ends up looking blahzay and limp, or on the flip-side: cheerleader-esque and perky — and most certainly not even remotely made for adulthood.
After some flip-floppy trial and error half ponies, I finally found the key. Your pony needs a little "bed" to lay on. I get it — it sounds super weird, and maybe even a little creepy, but hear me out. Your pony flops all over the place, but if it had a snuggly bed to rest on, maybe it would stay put. I know I would.
First things first, you're going to want to pump up your mane with some waves. You don't have to start with beachwaves, but why wouldn't you?! #beachwaverforlife If you want to go straight, that's doable, too, but you'll definitely need to add some grit and oomph.

Top 3 tips:
Whether you're working with a curly/wavy or straight base, make sure to build some grit with a texture spray. That will help you pump up the "bed" base and the pony! Lift a section, spray near the root, let dry for 2 seconds, and then release the section. Tip on tip: if you spray the texture spray before teasing then you'll build some instant grit and resistance, which will help you build a better base!
Build the "bed" around the perimeter of the head - not just right under the pony. And don't forget to plump up the pony, too!
If you feel like the pony is too tightly pulled back and your head is looking a little...large...feel free to leave some wispy pieces out, and even rock your baby hairs! We know Khlo-money would.
