The perfect pony for summer?

Ponytails are basically the best hairstyles ever. They're practical, versatile and can be worn by anyone with hair long enough to tie up. The high-shine pony featured opposite is a great approach to the look as it's sleek, simple and – most importantly – easy to style!

To get the look, all you have to do is follow the tutorial below...

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream
Paddle brush
Flat iron
Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray
Hair tie

Step one: Starting with damp hair, apply Frizz Vanisher Cream evenly throughout and blow-dry using a paddle brush. The cream will smooth the cuticle as the hair dries, helping to eliminate frizz from the very beginning.

Step two: If you don't feel your hair is straight enough once it's all dry, use a flat iron for any touch-ups.

Step three: Brush all the hair back off of your face then spray all over with Strand-Smoother Serum Spray. This will give the hair an even sleeker finish, eliminating any final flyaways.

Step four: Gather the hair back into a ponytail and secure with a fabric hair tie.

Step five: Use your hands to lightly muss the hair on the sides to complete the look.

If you want to give this style a more polished finish, take a section of hair from the pony and wrap it around the elastic then pin underneath to hold it in place. This will camouflage the hair tie, making this 'do look even more chic! Alternatively, accessorize with a barrette to disguise the tie.

Happy styling!
