Need a low-maintenance maternity hairstyle (a la Kate Middleton) or are just looking for a chic and classic way to wear your long locks when tight on time (and patience)? Stick with a simple and sleek ponytail. Accessorized with an Emi Jay hair tie ($10.99-$12.99 for 5) to keep ridges at bay or a Dauphines of New York adorned barrette ($60) for added glam, this isn’t your gym-ready ponytail. Here’s how to DIY it at home with tips from stylist Kerrie Urban.
How To DIY A Sleek Ponytail
Spray hair with Pantene Pro-V Stylers Heat Protection Spray ($5.99).
Smooth out hair, using a paddle brush and blow dryer.
Spray 4-5 pumps of Pantene Pro-V Root Lifter Spray Gel ($3.99) onto hands and run it through your hair.
Using a paddle brush, gather hair back into a ponytail about halfway up your head.
To finish, spray Pantene Pro-V Touchable Volume Non-Aerosol Hairspray ($3.99) on your fingertips and run over the flyaways.
