Throwing your hair into a messy ponytail is simple. But expertly pulling your hair into perfectly-textured, red carpet-ready look like Emma Stone’s? Well, that’ll require a few tricks from the star’s go-to pro, L’Oréal celebrity hairstylist Mara Roszak.
Luckily, we were able to hang out with Roszak at the PeopleStyle HQ — and she showed us exactly how to create the boho-chic look in the How It’s Done video above.
To set the texture for the ponytail, Roszak begins by using a GHD Platinum Professional styler to create waves on small sections of hair. With each pass of the iron, the pro twists her wrist, alternating in upward and downward motions, in order to create the perfect bends. Then, to finish the texture, Roszak uses a curling iron to curl the front sections of hair away from the face.
Once the texture is complete, she moves onto the ponytail, separating the sections from the ears forward and pinning them out of the way. She then teases the hair at the crown to create volume, and braids a few small pieces of hair throughout to add a boho feel.
Next, Roszak pulls the back section of hair into a low ponytail, leaving the front sections loose, before pulling them back, and pinning them around the base of the pony in order to hide the elastic. She locks everything in place with L’Oréal Elnett Hairspray, and pulls on random pieces of hair to create an effortless, undone look.
