Anyone can create a ponytail, but if yours keeps sliding down your head as the day goes on, here's an easy trick from stylist Robert Vetica. (He created the textured ponytail seen here on Salma Hayek.) "Give the hair a good teasing where you are placing the elastic for the pony," he says. "Brush all your hair into place, but before you finish, use your fingers to give it a more deconstructed effect." After attaching the elastic, you should have a more secure style that lasts all day. In this case, being a tease is a very good thing.

The majority of you were loving Jennifer Lopez's look at the Grammys, and I've got the scoop on the inspiration behind her hairstyle from stylist Robert Vetica, who worked with the multitalented actress last night. Inspired by the 1970s, Vetica focused on creating volume and texture to give Jennifer's one-length hair a throwback feel, and here's how:
First, apply Moroccanoil Treatment on wet locks and blow-dry until the hair is smooth, using a round brush to build volume. After making a center part, start curling. Use a one-inch iron, making sure you curl the hair downward in a spiral fashion. (Vetica started curling in the back of Jennifer's hair, working his way to the front, lifting her hair away from her face in the process.) Next, break up the curl with your fingers and apply Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream for texture and hold. Finish off by brushing out the hair, backcombing underneath for even more fullness, and then spritzing on hair spray for shine and control.
