How-To: Half-Up Knotted Ponytail

This week, Pureology Global Artistic Director Wendy Belanger joins Ruth and shares her half-up knotted ponytail. It’s a great style for women with straight hair that don’t want to curl it, but want to do something special. All you need is Pureology Strengthening Control Hairspray, 2 elastics and a bobby pin. A special thanks to Kris Sorbie for the mannequin!
