If your hair is dry and you have not conditioned it then you are running the risk for splitting the ends. So to begin with, make sure that you shampoo well and use a conditioner unless of course your hair is oily. Towel dry it as there is no need to blow_dry your hair for the ponytail look. You might want to add a little bit of gel to give it a nice shiny look and to help keep those flyaway hairs under control.
No matter where you look, you see stars and their hair. On TV, in movies, on magazine covers, it is hard to miss stars such as Paris Hilton or Amy Winehouse, even Sinead O'Connor or Kelly Osborn. Why is it that these stars can pull off these looks without being the least bit worried about what people think? Confidence. They are a rare type of woman who doesn't care what the public thinks about how they look.
