The ultimate hair tip you never knew you needed.

2,253 Hypes

Chris Appleton, the Los Angeles-based celebrity hairstylist behind some of the hottest a-list celebrity looks, has a quick tip for you on achieving a lazy girl volumizing ponytail.

In a recent Instagram video, Appleton demonstrates how to execute the staple hairstyle. Starting with creating a middle-tousled ponytail, he pulled the model’s hair through the elastic, folded the hair under and then through again, mid-height and fanned the hair out to create more volume and dimension. To emphasize the look, he cinched the ponytail tighter for a closer and fuller fit. Appleton has created statement hairstyles on the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Ariana Grande, Kim Kardashian and many more, so we trust the doctor here with this tip.

During the fall, messy top knots and easy pull-and-go ponytails are top of mind when you’re in a rush and still want to look polished. If you’re looking to recreate the style on yourself, take a closer look at Appleton’s instructions below.
