And dress it up with a few butterfly clips, Olivia got hers from Princess Polly. To get the look, she says "I use a refresher spray to dampen my scalp, then I use a brush to comb it back in place. I also glaze my scalp with gel and hairspray which helps to brush out all the bumps and keep it slick all day. I use hair elastics to then secure a tight ponytail near the top of my head. To get that extra slicked effect, I use a toothbrush and gel to brush back my baby hairs."
