What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray
Tail comb
Hair tie
Bobby pins (for short or layered cuts)
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Step one: With a tail comb, define a straight center part then comb your hair through to remove any knots or tangles. This will help to fix your part in place, and make the styling process really easy.

Step two: Mist the hair all over with Strand-Smoother Serum Spray for an instantly sleek texture. Comb it all through again to ensure even coverage.

Step three: Gather your hair back into a loose pony, securing just below the nape of your neck. If you have a layered cut or shorter hair, use bobby pins to secure any major flyaways/unruly sections of hair.

Step four: Finally, spray all over with Bold Control Hairspray for long-lasting hold, and you're done!
