Grab your comb, brush, a headband and some Scrunchies and follow the video above. Then, read below for a step-by-step tutorial on creating these Zoom hairstyles.
Zoom Hairstyle #1: All Goody Headband Ponytail
As Nikki says, “This is a way to match your outfit, or look like you put a little more effort into it.”
Step 1: Before pulling hair back, separate three small sections from the front, left and right sides of your hair that are about 1 and 1/2 inches apart. You should have three “straps” of hair hanging.
Step 2: Take the remainder length and pull it back into a “snatched” ponytail using Planet Goody Ouchless Forever Elastic Hair Ties. Smooth with a detangler brush like the Planet Goody Total Texture Intelliwave (only available in stores).
Step 3: Grab a Planet Goody Ouchless Headband and place it at the crown of your head. Next, take one of the three separate sections and wrap it around your ponytail and secure it with a Planet Goody Bobby Pin. Repeat this with the remaining two sections until you’ve created a basketweave pattern.
Zoom Hairstyle #2: Stacked Scrunchies Ponytail
Who would have guessed that not 1, not 2, but 3 stacked Scrunchies would look so good?
Step 1: To achieve this playful hairstyle, you start out by gathering your locks into a medium-high ponytail using the Planet Goody Total Texture Intelliwave. Nikki says, “I intentionally go up a little higher just because I would want to see it.”
Step 2: Next, grab three different colored Scrunchies. Nikki’s pick are the Planet Goody Ouchless Scrunchies in Neon Lights that work to punch up your style. Loop the Scrunchies around the ponytail. “We are just going to slide them on there and sit them… we just position them so each color gets its own shine,” explains Nikki.
Step 3: Take your brush and do a little back-brushing of the ponytail to enhance volume at the base.
Step 4: Finger-roll the end of the pony into the stacked Scrunchies and secure with Planet Goody Bobby Pins Black Hair Pins.
Okay, my friends. You are now ready to look fabulous on your next video call with these easy Zoom hairstyles.
