No flyaways, no intricate styling methods, just an easy-as-pie undo that absolutely anyone with long hair can recreate!

To find out how to get the look, all you have to do is watch the video tutorial above. You'll also find the written instructions below to make sure the styling process is plain sailing (i.e. no video pausing to deal with).

Step three

Step five
Do the same on the other half of the ponytail.

Step six

Spray your whole style with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray for added shine and you're all set!
