premiere in Los Angeles, Kate Mara
stunned with a sleek, pulled crown and textured pony. Achievable with all hair types, this simple style adds an instant sophistication to any outfit. To recreate the look, hairstylist Alex Polillosuggests starting with clean, just-washed hair. Then, using a diffuser, roughly dry strands and prep hair for the deep side part with a fine comb and shaping spray-gel. After creating a comfortable, fly-away free part, brush hair back and into a pony. Using curling tongs, add care-free waves and veil mane with hairspray. To complete the look, take a small strand from the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic and pin to secure.
