Whether you're looking to elevate your everyday ponytail into one that's sleek and smooth, trying to figure out how to incorporate your new bangs into your old favorite styles, or simply attempting to master basic hairstyles before moving on to the more complicated stuff- this ponytail is a must-know! Plus, we'll show you how to make your hair elastic invisible!

Perfect the ponytail

Step one

Starting with towel-dried hair, spray it hair all over, from roots to ends, with a straightening heat protection spray.

Step two

Blow dry your hair as smoothly as possible using a paddle brush. Using the concentrator nozzle on your blow dryer and always pointing it in a downward motion will give you the best results!

Step three

Flat iron the hair to get a smoother, sleeker texture.

Step four

Spray the hair all over again, this time with hairspray.

Step five

While the spray is still drying, brush all the hair back into a ponytail (but leave your fringe out, simply sweeping it to the side).

Step six

Secure the hair with a hair tie.

Step seven

Spray the palm of your hand with hairspray.

Step eight

Smooth down the hair along the scalp and in the ponytail to tame and flyaways or frizzy sections.

Step nine

Take a small section from the ponytail and spray it with hairspray. Wrap the hair around the base of the ponytail.

Step ten

Discretely secure the hair with a bobby pin and you're all finished!

There you have it- an easy guide to creating the ultimate ponytail. Now you know how to achieve it, there's simply no reason not to!
