A sleek ponytail can make you look polished & professional! It´s no matter if you wear it down to your neck or in a high ponytail! To style a sleek ponytail for long hair, follow these super simple steps!

1. Start with clean, dry hair

Wash and condition your hair as usual, then blow-dry it using a round brush to smooth out any kinks or frizz.

Here is a super easy tutorial on straightening your hair without heat!

2. Apply a smoothing product

Before styling, apply a small amount of smoothing serum or hair oil to tame any flyaways and add shine. Be careful not to use too much product, as it can weigh down your hair or make it look oily.

3. Create a deep side or middle part

Use a rat tail comb to create a clean, defined part on one side of your head. For a sleek look, aim for a deep side part rather than a center part.

4. Gather your hair

Brush your hair back and gather it into a ponytail at the nape of your neck or the top of the back of your neck. Use a paddle brush or a fine-tooth comb to smooth out any bumps or lumps as you gather your hair.

5. Secure your sleek ponytail

Once you’ve gathered your hair into a ponytail, secure it with a hair tie. You can use a clear elastic for a seamless look or choose a hair tie that matches your hair color.

6. Smooth out the sleek ponytail

Use a small amount of hair wax to smooth out any flyaways and add shine to your ponytail. Run your hands over the surface of the ponytail to ensure it’s sleek and polished.

7. Make it look extra sleek

Wrap a small section of hair around the hair tie to conceal it for a more polished look. Secure the end of the wrapped hair with a bobby pin underneath your sleek ponytail.

8. Finish with hairspray

Finish with a light mist of hairspray to lock your sleek ponytail in place and prevent stray hairs from popping up throughout the day.
