Before you put your hair into a ponytail, you will have to ask your hairstylist to give you blonde highlights that blend together into your hair and go lighter as you reach the very tips of it.

Once that’s done, you will have to comb your hair back and upwards in a very high ponytail, but, instead of tying up with just a headband, tie your hair around it to cover the hair tie and you’re done.
