Model Jourdan Dunn is always serving up hair inspiration with her ever-changing tresses. Last month, we saw her rock an innovative twist on the classic ponytail crafted by stylist Ursula Stephens, so we were thrilled when we learned one of our contributors and stylist Monaé Everett gave a tutorial on how to cop the look at the home.

Press play below to watch the Stunning Braids author break down the steps to recreate an everyday version of the look and follow along with step-by-step instructions.
First, lightly dampen hair and massage Biosilk Silk Therapy serum throughout the hair. Use a rat-tail to gather the middle of the hair into a high pony. Monae said this helps to make a tighter, sleeker ponytail. Next, grab some gel and smooth edges up into the ponytail. Once secure, wrap two to three packs of jumbo braid hair extensions around the ponytail with the attached rubber band. Now, create a two-strand twist on one side and secure ends with ponytail leaving some out. Trim for a blunt cut and finish off with a hair sheen like Ouidad Mongongo Oil Multi-Use Curl Treatment to add shine and tame fly-aways.
Bonus: Get creative with hair clips and accessories to add flavor and height to the look. To dupe this look, Monae cut a jumbo setting roller in half to use as a ponytail accessory.
