A polished pony is always on trend and will be the number one trending hairstyle at May Ball this year since it goes so perfectly with just about every dress style. Faviana Style 10014 is our top pick since it has such an intricate back and a polished pony will be sure to show it off.

To capture the ultimate Kim K pony, follow these super easy steps:

  1. Run your favorite straightening serum through damp hair.
  2. Blow dry your hair straight and then follow up by using a straightening iron to tame any frizz.
  3. Remember to always spray heat protecting spray through your hair before styling! Our fav is the Tresemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Leave In Spray which you can get at almost any beauty store.
  4. Combine a mixture of hair gel and a drop or two of oil to comb through your hair.
  5. Pull your strands together into a high or low pony – whichever you prefer for this look!
  6. Top it off with a bit of hairspray and you’re good to go!

Trending Hairstyles at May Ball: Volumized Mixed Braid

This year, braids are the number two trending hairstyle at May Ball. You can make them as polished or messy as you’d like. To achieve the volumized mixed braid look, start out with a loose french crown braid and secure the braid at the nape of your neck. Then, start a loose fishtail braid until you reach the end. Start pulling pieces out of each of the braids for a volumized, carefree, look and finish off with a touch of hairspray to keep your strands in place.
