Paula Abdul (Mar 5th, 2009)
Paula Abdul’s smoothed-back ponytail has volume on top and sleek, sideswept bangs.
Step 1: Apply a nickel-size amount of styling lotion onto damp hair. Using a paddle brush, blow dry two-inch sections straight.
Step 2: Leaving your bangs out, take a two-inch section of hair on top and hold it straight up. Use a tight-toothed comb and backcomb in short strokes along the back of the section down toward your scalp. Repeat with all sections on top of your head.
Step 3: Use a natural bristle brush to smooth the surface of the top of your hair as your gather all of your hair and place into a ponytail in back.
