… the “magical pony”

A Volumized Pony-Tail Tutorial


A few weeks ago my friend Kate Bryan, from The Small Things Blog, and I met up in Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina to film a few videos together. Kate and I have been friends for years and I just adore her, so when the opportunity for us to get together and film a hair tutorial came up, I jumped on it! The funny and magical thing about the internet is that Kate and I had never actually met in real life.  Sure we’ve chatted on the phone, skyped, and FaceTimed… but this was our first time meeting IRL, which made the day so much more fun!

We spent the afternoon filming 3 videos and I’ve got to be honest with you, it was one of the best days we spent in South Carolina that week. We laughed more than we talked and our guys hit it off as well. Once we were finished filming for the day we decided that we officially needed our own talk show!

Today over on Kate’s blog we are both sharing our top 5 favorite beauty products of the month, and over here we are breaking down how to take your everyday ponytail to the next level with this Volumized Ponytail Tutorial

This hairstyle is one of my very favorites so I brought in the professional (Kate!) to show us how it’s really done! I hope you enjoy!
