Reese Witherspoon's Bouncy Ponytail

As one of the most-talked-about hairstyles of the Oscars, we couldn't take our eyes off of Reese Witherspoon's hair. Our main question: Were hair extensions responsible for the volume? The answer: no! That's the actress' real hair, they say. The hair stylist responsible for the big, bouncy mane: Frederic Fekkai's Renato Campora, who channeled the mod-'60s.

Step 1: Create the foundation for the style by applying Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel and the Fekkai Silky Straight Ironless Smooth Finish Serum.

Step 2: Blow dry hair with a large, round brush to enhance fullness and volume.

Step 3: Divide the hair into two sections.

Step 4: Using a 1 1/2-inch curling iron, create movement and volume on the bottom layer.

Step 5: Tease the roots of the top section to create the volume.

Step 6: Finish the look with hairspray to secure the silhouette and shape of the style
