Hairstyles How To: Create Jessica Alba's Rocker Chic Ponytail

For the recent 2014 Global Citizen Festival, held on Saturday, September 27th in New York City, celebrity hairstylist Rebekah Forecast worked with Jessica Alba to create a rocker-chic look. Says Forecast, "My inspiration for Jessica's hair was the music festival itself. Cool, rock-chic with a little bit of punk - hence the braid - giving the effect of a buzzed side. I also wanted the high pony to look young and effortless."

Get the Look:
1. Says Forecast, "Beginning with wet hair, I applied a volumizing spray at the roots to help create texture and volume. I blow-dried the hair with a diffuser to keep the natural movement in the length and ends, but smoothed out the hairline.  

2. "Once hair was dry, I sprayed the whole head with a small amount of dry shampoo to give a second day feel. This also helps to get a good grip on the hair when pulling it into a high ponytail. I used a brow mascara on the hair line to tame any fly-aways.

3. "Once the ponytail was secured, I sprayed a bit of thermal spray and used a flat iron to create irregular waves throughout the hair. The spray gave the hair great hold as I knew she was going to be outside all day and touch ups would not be possible."
