Dance Ready Side-Pony:
Spray dry roots with a volumizer (try Matrix Total Results Wonder Boost, $16) to add lift.
Make a side part, then tie hair in a ponytail right behind your ear on the opposite side of your part.
For soft waves, wrap large sections around a large curling iron; for tight curls, grab small sections and curl with a small curling iron.
Use your fingers to pull apart some of the curls so they’re looser and fuller.
Finish with hair spray. An anti-humidity one (like Garnier Fructis Full Control, $4) will keep strands tame.
