How to get an ultra-sleek ponytail

Here's how you can create an ultra-sleek ponytail!Have you ever wondered how some girls manage to get their ponytails so gosh-darn perfect? While lying over the edge of your bed with a comb in hand is a method many ladies have used (it gets the job done…but might send a rush to your head), there's an easier way to do it. Here's how The Beauty Department likes to style a super-sleek pony.

First, smooth your dry hair with a product like Hamadi – Shea Hair Cream. It helps tame frizz and hydrate dry ends, which you don't want ruining your look. Make sure to comb it throughout your hair.

Now create a ponytail that leaves out the hair closest to your hairline. It sounds weird, and it kind of looks strange, but don't worry – this isn't the final look. Essentially, it's like a half-updo with the majority of your hair up in the ponytail. Use a comb to get rid of any bumps – it's okay if they build up toward the elastic.

Now start gathering the free strands of hair and smoothing them over the ponytail you just created. Use a comb as you do this to make sure it's totally sleek. When you've got it all together, tie another elastic around the base.

Finally, use a bit of hairspray like Fekkai – COIFF Sheer Hold Hairspray to smooth down any flyaways. That's it!
