A Disney-Do: The Jasmine

             Part Two of A Disney-Do has come at last! This is what I like to call "The Jasmine." We all know and love this strong-willed diva and her signature poofy-pony. As this series calls for, I added my own twist to Jasmine's classic look. Not everyone has gorgeous long black hair so if you're like me and are on the average side of things, this look will take you up a notch.
            Here's what you do:

  • Pull hair back into a pony tail and use a comb to slick back the sides. 
  • With your fingers, comb through the top and middle of your hair, messing it up a bit and adding volume. If you have bangs (like me) pin them back.
  • Secure your hair with an elastic and then take about 1/2inch thick piece of hair from the bottom of your ponytail and wrap it around the elastic to cover it up. Pin into place.
  • Get three small black/clear elastics. The first section will be bigger than the rest, so secure an elastic around your hair about two-three inches down from the original. The distance varies depending on your hair length. 
  • Once secure, pull the hair between the two elastics outwards all around to make a poof. You can make it as messy as you'd like. A teasing brush helps to get a thicker look to it.
  • Repeat the previous two steps with the remaining elastics.
  • Tease the ends of your ponytail slightly.
  • Spray with hairspray.
Et Voila! There you have a lovely Jasmine-esque hair style.
