Celebrity stylist Vernon Francois has a pretty amazing styling trick to achieve the perfect summer pony puff and we’re shocked we’ve never thought to do this.

“Although shrinkage is a sign of healthy hair. It can sometimes make it difficult to achieve that perfect puff-pony or slick bun. Instead of forcing all of your hair into one band, try creating a smaller ponytail in the center of your head and then secure the perimeter. It will increase the length without putting too much pressure on your edges.”

GIRL. This makes perfect sense for those of us with dense, thick hair that rejects the almighty puff. Use your Maui Moisture Heal & Hydrate Shea Butter Detangler Leave-in, followed by an application of your favorite edge control.
