Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer were at a Meet the Cast event recently and, while of course we wanted to hear all about the cute couple, we kept getting distracted by Anna's pretty ponytail, featuring just enough backcombing to make it interesting!
My Little Ponytail
Anna shows that a ponytail doesn't have to be boring if you style it well. If you'd like to try out her look for yourself, follow our easy tutorial below...
Get the Look
What you'll need: Paddle brush, tail comb, hairspray, volumizing mousse, long hair
After washing and conditioning, apply some volumizing mousse from root to tip, then blow dry straight. Don't worry about perfection, this style doesn't need super sleek, poker straight hair, which is why you shouldn't reach for the flat iron unless you have really curly hair.
Use your paddle brush to pull the hair away from your face and into a ponytail at the crown of your head.
Take your tail comb and use it to loosen a section of hair at the front, at the top of your forehead.
Use the comb end of your tail comb to lightly backcomb this loosened front section to form a small quiff.
Close your eyes and spray this front section. Then spritz some hairspray onto your palms, rub them together, and run them down the sides of your head, past your ears, to make sure the sides are super smooth.
Finish by lightly backcombing the center of the ponytail and also spritzing it with hairspray to avoid it going flat.
That's a true True Blood hairstyle!
