  • Hairstyles for New Year’s Eve: The Elegant Ponytail Version

    Ponytails are well-loved because they look great, and they are so versatile. It takes just a few styling tricks to turn an ordinary ponytail into a festive party hairstyle. Kate Mara’s ponytail style (see the photo above) is suitable for quiet as well as for wild New Year’s Eve parties. Glamorous ponytail elements are low side partings, accessories, and gel-treated hair strands styled in geometric patterns.

  • Styling Instructions for Kate Mara’s Sleek Ponytail:

    1. Spray heat protectant into your hair before you straighten it using a flat iron.

    2. Use a styling comb to create a low, slightly slanted side parting. The parting should be straight

    3. Distribute an about pea-sized dollop of hair gel in the palm of your hands. Then use your hands to work the gel through your entire hair.

    4. Separate and secure an about 2 inches wide strand of hair above your forehead. Then gather the rest of the hair into a low ponytail but do not yet secure it with a scrunchy. Add more gel if needed.

    5. Now comb the strand of hair over your forehead across the crown of the head and toward the ponytail starting at the side parting. You may like to apply more hair gel before gathering the ponytail again and securing it using a scrunchy.

    6. Apply hairspray for extra gloss and hold.
