Ponytails are just ponytails, right? Simple, easy to style and totally predictable... or are they? This sleek chic number might just prove a couple of those long-standing misconceptions wrong! Sure, it's simple, but it's very pretty, and you're not likely to find anyone else wearing it in the same room either. If you need a formal hairstyle for an event but don't have the time - or inclination - for something really intricate, this could be the look for you!

The ultra-sleek texture is the main focus of this style, so there's no teasing or complicated sculpting with bobby pins to deal with. All you have to do is master that gorgeous twist and you're good to go!

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray
Flat iron
Bristle brush
Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray
Hair tie
Bobby pins
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Step one: Starting with dry hair, spray evenly from roots to ends with Iron Straight Heatspray and flat iron.

Step two: Brush the hair through and mist with Strand-Smoother Serum Spray for an instantly sleek texture. This will help to tame any flyaways and render a cashmere-soft finish.

Step three: Leaving a large section of hair loose on one side, gather the hair into a low pony at the nape of your neck and secure with a small hair tie.

Step four: Sweep the loose section of hair back and wrap the ends around the base of the pony to create the twist. Pin underneath to hold it in place.

Step five: Mist the hair all over with Bold Control Hairspray and you're done!
