Polished Ponytail
By Brooke Nipar

First things first: for a sleek pony, it's best to start with a smooth blowout and center part.

Tease the crown to give hair volume and create a sexy Brigitte Bardot bump.

Leave a strand out of your ponytail to wrap around the hair elastic.

Extra-chic final touch: Cinch the ends with an elastic and loop under, anchoring with hairpins.
