Hair Tutorial - How to Do a Sleek Ponytail


  1. Start with perfectly clean, slightly damp hair. Brush out the tangles from your hair with a paddle brush.
  2. Divide your hair into two sections: top and bottom. Pin the top section for later.
  3. Gather up the bottom section of your hair to just below your crown. Secure the pony with a hair tie.
  4. Iron the top section of your hair. Then brush it toward your pony and secure with a tie.
  5. Run your iron over the rest of your ponytail for a more polished look.
  6. For a seamless finish, grab a small section of your hair and wrap it around your hair tie. Secure the end tight with a bobby pin.
