Get an ultra-sleek ponytail

They’re simple and elegant – no wonder the runways have been taken over by ponytail hairstyles. Learn how to get the sleek look with these four foolproof steps.

They’re not just for those days when you need a quick styling rescue so you scrape your hair back. This season’s catwalks have shown how the ponytail in all its forms can be a seriously stylish look.

But how do you make sure your look is red-carpet chic and not schoolgirl or gym bunny? With the help of experts, we’ve created this step-by-step guide.

Step 1. Mousse-up

Prepare your hair for a sleek and shiny look with some mousse. Work in some Pantene Pro-V Satin Smooth Mousse while your hair is still damp, and then blow dry to glossy perfection.

Step 2. Polish up the look

For amazingly shiny hair, warm a little Pantene Pro-V Smooth & Sleek Dry Oil in your hands and run them through the mid-lengths and the ends. Then straighten your hair in sections using styling tongs.

Step 3. Hold your head high

Height is the secret to an elegant look. Brush your hair into a high ponytail just above the crown, so it won’t slip down. Instead of a hair band, try using a ponytail bungee band (a band with a hook on each end), for fewer snags and a tighter grip.

Step 4. Spritz and go

Use a maximum-hold hairspray such as Pantene Pro-V Ultra-Strong Hold to tame those fly-away hairs. Concentrate on the troublesome area around the hairline for a super-sleek finish.
