Tracee Ellis Ross Inspired Pony

I’ve loved Tracee Ellis Ross ever since Girlfriends. In my head she’s Auntie Tracee. Although her hair has always been goals, she’s been killing it lately. I was particularly inspired by her do’ at last year ‘s Golden Globes when she hit us with this…tracee ellis ross pony tail

So, when I recently found myself in a hair-rut I decided to try something new and who better to use for inspiration than Ms. Ross herself?

I used YouTube for tutorials, as I do with most of my hairstyles to accomplish this pony. This video gave a really great step-by-step of how I achieved my look.

Once I felt prepared, I headed to my favorite beauty supply store: Pico Beauty Supply and Salon. Since this was a trial-run I purchased Bobbi Boss Beach Curl hair that was $10.99. I didn’t want to spend a whole bunch of money on some hair that might not work out, but for the price this hair is really soft and I love the texture. It does tangle, but for $10.99 I’m satisfied.

I already had Cantu Curling Cream in my hair as well as Eco Styler Olive Oil gel so to avoid too much product build-up, I spritzed my hair with Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hold & Shine Moisture Mist and then smoothed down my edges with Cantu Edge Stay gel.

 

I then brushed my hair into a ponytail and made the smallest bun possible. Next, I wrapped the hair around my bun, securing the tracks down with bobby pins as I went. To seal the deal, I wrapped up my hair with a silk scarf and let it marinate for about an hour.

The results were fire and this will definitely be a go-to style for when I’m tired of my bun and feel like getting fancy.
