Here’s how to create an office ponytail
1. Work final shine spray through hair
2. Smooth over hair for a high shine finish
3. Secure hair, low at the nape, with bungee elastic
4. Take section under pony and wrap around to hide elastic
5. Secure with a pin and spray with final fix hairspray
step one: Work final shine spray through hair
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.
