For a sleek ponytail you can wear to any occasion you will need a parting comb, a boar bristle brush, and a hair elastic. We use a hair bungee in this tutorial to avoid getting those dreaded bumps on top. Start by parting your hair how you would like it. Next hold your ponytail in one hand while you brush the top back with your boar bristle brush. Keeping the ponytail in one hand while you secure a hair bungee will keep the top sleek and smooth.
