The rosette embellished ponytail is pretty, feminine, and will complete any daytime look so that you can conquer your workload, grab lunch with the girls, or even head out on an early evening date.

Ready to get the look? Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Brush
  • Two clear elastic bands
  • Four to five bobby pins
