“This pony style works just as well for the office as it does for a day at the pool.” -Jennie Kay

I’ve fallen in love with this retro ponytail because it’s stylish and easy to create in minutes!

What You Need:

– a hairbrush

– a comb

– two clear hair elastics

– a few bobby pins

– your favorite soft hold aerosol hairspray

– a smoothing pomade (optional)

Step 1. Smooth hair into a ponytail with a brush at the mid to bottom of your neck and secure with a small rubber elastic.

Step 2. Take a small section of hair from the ponytail (about 1/2-inch thick) and pull it aside.

Step 3. Wrap that section of hair around the ponytail to camouflage the elastic and secure with a bobby pin. Spritz the hair in the ponytail with an aerosol hairspray (or smoothing pomade) and comb through to smooth the ponytail.

Step 4. Using an additional small elastic, secure it midway down the shaft of the ponytail.

Step 5. Spread apart the section within the elastics into two. Flip the bottom of the tail up and through the opening.

Step 6. Repeat step 4 again.

Step 7. Repeat step 5 again. Spritz the entire style with an aerosol hairspray to smooth flyaways or frizz.
