Gold medal cute hairstyles for day and night up next!
1. The Olympic Volleyball Player: Jennifer Kessy
Apply JONATHAN Product Weightless Smooth No-Frizz Hydrating Balm ($24, jonathanproduct.com) throughout slightly damp hair to tame flyaways. Blow dry hair completely. Once your hair is dry, pull the hair back to a high pony tail. Take 3 rubber bands and spread them apart on the pony tail. Use JONATHAN Product Silky Dirt ($14. jonathanproduct.com)on the separated sections for added texture.
2. The Olympic Gymnast: Nastia Liukin
Thoroughly wash hair with a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. I recommend Jonathan Product hydrating shampoo ($18, johnathanproduct.com) and hydrating conditioner ($18. jonathanproduct.com). With clean, dry hair, section out the bang portion of your hair and clip it to the side for now. Apply a small amount of Dirt Texturizing paste by Jonathan Product ($26, jonathanproduct.com) to your hands. Then start a loose French braid from each side of your head half way to the crown. Pull both sides/French braids and the remaining hair from the back of the head into a high pony tail. Unclip the bang portion of the hair. Loosely pushing it forward first to create a small pompadour, braid the remaining loose hair and add it to the already created pony tail. Finish off this look with Jonathan Product Finish Control hairspray ($22, jonathanproduct.com).
