Looking forward to the carefree fun of summer, beach plans, or even the air conditioning at work this year? Prepare your hair this summer with this super stylish, quick, and easy tiered ponytail. Sam Villa, co-founder of Sam Villa® and Global Artistic Ambassador for Redken 5th Avenue shows us how he creates this beautiful woven look, without the use of braids!

This look includes interlocking hair pieced together with the placement of ponytail elastics from left to right and covering them with vertical slices to create a stacked row of ponytails. You don’t need much to achieve this minimalist, modern look:

  1.     A Sam Villa Artist Series Finishing Brush to smooth and brush back hair for a polished design.
  2.     Redken Braid Aid 03 braid defining lotion to coat the elastics to prevent damage to hair and provide mild control.
  3.     A handful of hair elastics.

Villa says there are two tricks to creating the voluminous ponytails, braids, twists and knots that dominate Pinterest.

  1.     Texture – For a bigger bolder design, compress hair with a Sam Villa Textur Volumizing Iron to create texture and volume prior to styling. It really fattens things up!
  2.     Pancake – To make braids looks more modern and full, gently pull apart each section of the braid with thumb and pointer finger to spread apart the design. Hungry already?
