Hey ladies! So many of you have confided in me that you can't seem to get the hang of the messy ponytail. "Messy" should be easy but in reality, it takes a little practice. But beyond that, it requires a shift in mindset. We are trained to be neat and to look sufficiently undone, you have to undo fight against the urge to be tidy.

First, some tips:

1. Don't overthink it.
2. Don't feel self-concious. It's supposed to be hot mess and no one thinks you're trying too hard. In fact, no one thinks you are trying at all and that's the point.
3. Once your ponytail is up, forget all about it. Just leave it alone and own it.
4. Don't overthink it.

Now watch the video to see how I create a messy ponytail and give it a try. I think you'll be surprised at how easy it is to create this cute and sassy style.
