Comb all of your hair toward the crown of the head. Gather all of your hair with one hand while brushing it toward the crown.
Secure your hair at the high crown area with a hair elastic. If your hair is thick, use two hair elastics.
Take a small section of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the hair elastic.
Secure the hair you wrapped around the ponytail with a bobby pin underneath. This will hide the elastic and create a more finished look.
If you have any unwanted flyaways around your face or around your ponytail, use a light hairspray and spray in the direction of the crown while lightly smoothing out your hair with your fingers. This will give your ponytail a chic look.
