Section your pony for a brand new look!

We're always looking for ways to make the good old ponytail look brand new, and we just love this simple yet very effective way of making that happen! Sectioning your pony into two or three chunks adds detail, requires no complicated styling, and can be done in a matter of minutes.

Not dissimilar to a bubble ponytail, it's a look that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion, and one that works with just about every hair type. So, if you have long hair, why not give it a try?

Get the look

Step 1
For a super sleek finish, you need to start this style with smooth, straight hair. To do that, apply L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray throughout and flat iron.

Make sure all of your hair gets covered as the spray is both a style enhancer and a thermal protectant.

Step 2
Once your mane is on the straight and narrow, gather it all back into a low pony and tie. If you can, use elastics that contrast with your hair color so they really pop.

Step 3
Tie more elastics down the length of your pony, leaving a gap between each one. You can keep it simple like the model in the photo or you can go for more elastics and shorter gaps, it's all up to you.

Step 4
Mist your hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray for long-lasting hold and added shine. To tack down any flyaways, spray some hairspray into the palm of your hand then firmly smooth it over the problem area.

Will you be giving your ponytail this particular makeover?
