1. Begin with perfectly straight hair (do a run-through with a flat iron if you must). Rub some shine serum between your hands and smooth over hair to get extra shine.
2. Part hair to the side.
3. Tease roots at the crown for a little lift, spritz with hairspray and smooth over with a comb.
4. With the exception of your bangs, which should be neatly swept to the side, pull hair back into a mid-level pony. Secure with an elastic.
5. Wind your ponytail into a bun and pin into place, tucking in any loose ends. Mist with hairspray.
