What you'll need: 
Hair dryer

Work Sebastian Professional Matte Putty between hands then tousle it through hair with your fingertips to give hair more texture
Next, scrape hair back into a ponytail, high onto the crown of the head but before fastening it give the hair a shake to loosen the style and use your free hand to tease hair away from the rest of the head
Secure the hair into a ponytail and coil a strand around the base of the ponytail, securing it with hair pins
