If you’re anything like us, you still want to look glam, but not overdone – and what’s a better way to achieve that effortless but oh-so-gorgeous look? The style every celebrity seems to be flocking towards – the Jumbo Goddess Ponytail. Featured in different lengths on everyone from Jennifer Lopez to Linda Osifo, what we really love about this look is that it looks deceptively extra – but is actually super simple to achieve.
If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, this braided chain-link braided ponytail on Issa Rae is right up your street.
According to her go-to hairstylist, Felicia Leatherwood: I did this braid using 4 different pieces of hair… This has become my favourite type of braid to do. Thanks @sharonblain for re-sparking my creativity. #issarae for @covergirl.#hairbyfelicialeatherwood : hair assistant @styledxr : Makeup by @kilprity: Wardrobe by @jasonrembert.
If you’d like a super smooth base then Linda Osifo is your ultimate hair inspiration. A simple hack her is tying a scarf tightly around your hairline. Once that’s secure, blow-dry the perimeter until it is set.
If you fancy an editorial look you can recreate Eunice’s MASSIVE cobalt blue puff and twist braid.
