    Winona Ryder's dark hair enhances her look together with her large brown eyes and the bright red lips. She certainly has style, which she expresses in the ease of her appearances and elegant hairstyle choices. Her teased ponytail is just one example of this. Follow our instructions and style your own version of her high-volume ponytail.

  • Styling tools for the Winona Ryder teased ponytail:

    A curling iron with a small rod (in case your hair is not curly), volumising shampoo, volumising powder, a hair tie and hair grips

  • Styling Instructions for Winona Ryder’s Teased Ponytail:

    1. Use volumising shampoo to wash your hair.

    2. If nature did not give you curls, use a curling iron with a small rod to create soft waves. Simply roll thin strands of hair around the curling iron rod and allow the hair to warm for a short time. Then release the curl and allow it to cool.

    3. Lift individual strands of hair at the crown and apply some volumising powder to the roots. This provides the necessary bounce. For even more bounce you may want to use your fingers to tease or back comb your hair at the roots.

    4. Use your fingers to create an off centre parting and gather your hair in a loose, low ponytail. You may want to pull a few strands of hair over your ear.

    5. You can create more volume on the top by slightly pushing your hair up from the base of the ponytail. Use your fingers to shape your hair around the hair tie. The style should remain laid-back, loose and unpretentious.

    6. Finally, hide hair tie underneath a thin strand of hair, which you can pull out of the ponytail and fix using a hair grip. You may like to tease the hair in the ponytail using your fingers.
