What you need:

Bristle brush
Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray
Hair elastic
Bobby pin
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Step one: Start with dry hair and brush it all through to remove any knots or tangles.

Step two: Apply Iron Straight Heatspray from roots to ends. This will protect your hair when heat styling, and promote a smooth, sleek finish.

Step three: Run a flat iron through your hair, straightening it all section by section. If you find it easier, clip the top layers of your hair up while you flat iron the bottom sections, then work your way up.

Step four: Once all of your hair is straight, brush it all back into a tight low pony. Secure at the nape of the neck with a hair elastic.

Step five: Take a small section of hair and wrap it around the base of the pony to hide the elastic. To make sure the hair stays in place, pin it on the underside of the ponytail with a bobby pin.

Step six: Mist your whole style with Bold Control Hairspray. Spray a little on the palm of your hand and smooth over the top and sides of your head to tame flyaways, and you're done!
