For anyone who wants to show off an ombre dye or just keep their hair under control, a sleek ponytail is the perfect hairstyle. At once chic, practical and seemingly effortless, it's a classic hairstyle and one that anybody with long hair should have in their repertoire.
The good news is that to get the look, there are only a few simple steps to follow.
Iron Straight Heat Spray
A flat iron
Bold Control Hairspray
Create an extreme side parting with a tail comb and apply Iron Straight Heat Spray. Then, begin by blow-drying your hair, always pointing the dryer downwards. This will ensure hair dries as straight and vertical as possible at this stage.
Once hair is dry, apply more spray and run a flat iron through hair, working in large sections, to get it looking smooth and sleek. If your hair is prone to frizz, apply a small amount of Frizz Vanisher Cream to maintain the straight, smooth feel of this look.
Gather your hair in a low side ponytail and secure with a hair elastic. Wrap a section of hair from the pony around the base to hide the elastic for an extra chic touch.
Spray a little Bold Control Hairspray onto the palm of your hand, rub hands together and then smooth over the top and sides of your head to prevent flyaways and ensure everything stays sleek.
And you're done!
