Chic Pony

Time it took us: 2 minutes

Works on:
· Medium to long hair
· Straight or wavy
· Unwashed hair (Freshly washed? Add a small amount of styling cream or lotion to reduce flyaways)

Stuff to have handy:
· Styling cream or lotion
· Shine serum
· Small hair elastic
· 2 small bobby pins
· Not-too-stiff finishing hairspray
· Flat, boar-bristle styling brush

How to:
Step 1
Pull hair back into a low ponytail using a flat boar-bristle brush to create a bump-free finish. Secure with an elastic.
Step 2
Separate out a small strand of hair -- roughly the width of a pencil -- from the ponytail.
Step 3
Spray that piece well with hairspray then wrap it around the ponytail holder (see inset photo No.2).
Step 4
Bobby-pin the end of the small piece under the tail, and tuck in any loose ends.
Step 5
Lightly mist hairspray over everything and smooth with your hand.
