How to do a ponytail for the office:

1. Prep your hair

2. Create a low ponytail

3. Wrap around a section of hair

4. Pin the wrapped hair in place

5. Finish the style with product

step one: Prep your hair

Take the ghd oval dressing brush and spritz it with the ghd final shine spray, before brushing it through your dry, straight hair. This will create lustrous shine in the final look.

step two: Create a low ponytail

Scoop your hair back into a low ponytail. To ensure a high shine finish to the pony, smooth down the hair with the palm of your hand after brushing. Gather all of your hair, smoothing out the top, taking it into a low ponytail at the back of your head. With your head tilted back, pull the style into place and secure with a hair tie.

Tip: Tilting your head back as you create the style will avoid any bagging of the hair under the ponytail, enhancing the sleek look.

step three: Take a strand of hair and wrap the elastic

Create a neat finish and hide your hair elastic by taking a piece of hair from the bottom of the ponytail and winding this tightly around your tie. Wind until there is only a little hair left and pull the strand tight as you go for a flawless finish.

step four: Pin the hair in place

Take a hair grip and secure the hair you’ve wrapped, underneath the ponytail, concealing the pin and the ends for that perfect final look.

step five: Finish the style with product

Finish your ponytail hairstyle with a generous helping ghd final fix hairspray. Spritz the product over the wrapped hair and smooth with your fingers, then mist over the lengths of the ponytail for a smooth and sleek finished look.

Sleek, sophisticated and a breeze to style, this beautiful ponytail hairstyle will see you showered with compliments when you step into the office. By simply wrapping hair, to hide unsightly elastics, you get a polished, professional vibe ready to take on anything.
