Textured Grown Up Girls Ponytail

A ponytail doesn’t need to always look cutesy.

If you went blonde this summer and bleached those roots, don’t be in a rush to go back to your roots! Embrace that rooty blonde, grungy look and play up the cool ‘90s cruel girl look.

Make sure to pull out a few pieces at the front to add texture and frame your face and smooth any unruly locks with N4’s Smoothing Balm mini. This highly concentrated formula means that a little goes a long way. It’s perfect to add a touch of polish to that ponytail.

Back-to-School Baby Highlights

Starting somewhere new, doesn’t mean that you have to totally reinvent your style. Not unless you want to of course!

You could just go for something altogether more “subtle” as your back to school vibe. Think just a sprinkling of soften caramel highlights in chocolate brown hair. This baby highlighting effect still makes a noticeable difference and yes, caramel highlights look just as delicious as they sound and are always a great transitional color as we had into the Fall.

Take good care of your hair in term time and beyond with N4’s problem solving hair solutions range. Shop our latest hair remedies; There’s bound to be a vegan friendly and organic back-to-school hair kit that is just perfect for you.

Must Have!

I've used this product for years! Changed my hair from frizzy mess to natural waves. I can tell when I go without using this product for a week. I hope they never stop selling it!

  1. Michelle

    This product mixed with the Blow Dry Lotion leaves my hair looking so soft and shiny, like I just left the salon. I highly recommend.

  2. Rosella Morgan (verified owner)

    This stuff is AMAZING!! Seriously, hands down the best product I’ve used. It leaves my hair so soft, I can’t keep my hands off of it! I have natural curly hair and this keeps my straight style smooth and perfect all day – even with my contestant touching. Don’t hesitate, buy this – it’s worth it!!

  3. courtneymckibbin (verified owner)

    This stuff is incredible… I threw all of my other products away after one use. I have thick, naturally curly hair, and this deflated it without making it greasy. My hair is so soft and transformed; I can’t stop touching it! It works great for air drying or blow drying. Paired it with the hydrating shampoo and conditioner, and will never go back.

  4. lbeird (verified owner)

    I ordered the full sized Smoothing Balm after receiving a mini in a beauty box. I have very, very fine hair, styled in a pixie cut. I have a lot of hair, albeit fine. You wouldn’t think from the product details that this balm would work on my hair… but it does! It takes out static and smooths, but doesn’t weigh down my hair. I blow dry upside down, run a mini flat iron through, smooth a little balm on, and hair spray – DONE. It takes all of 5 minutes!

  5. ginnygirlu2

    This makes you feel just like you stepped out of a salon. the scent is so fabulous. I was hopeful it would smooth my thick hair but I was not expecting it to make it feel so healthy and like silk. I straigtened my hair and again, I did not expect it to help with my tools but it really cut the drying time down. I can’t believe it! It is that good & smells that good! kind of like a very light high end cologne. I don’t think it would offend many people’s nose. It is hard to find other than here. I received a small bottle in my #birthbox Need the big bottle but a little go’s a long way and I have long hair.

  6. vickisorders

    I’m 65 years old and used to have thick, heavy, lovely hair; I could do anything with it. Now, like most older women, my hair is thinner, drier, and more brittle. I still wear it long, so I’ve been looking for a product that will moisturize my hair and make it more elastic, will reduce the tangling at the ends (which leads to split ends), and will restore the smooth shine that I used to have. This is it. I still blow my hair dry for styling, and it left my hair smooth, shiny, and with thicker volume without feeling sticky, stiff, or oily. It almost feels like my 20-year-old hair again. Lovely product.
