A ponytail is a quick and easy hairstyle that can be enhanced with bejeweled combs or fancy pins. This simple yet sophisticated hairstyle works equally well for both the office and all of your after-work events. Since the style draws attention to your face, it’s a nice idea to play up your eyes to complement your hairstyle.
Sleek Evening Ponytail
The first step towards creating a perfect evening sleek ponytail is preparing the hair. For this, use your standard shampoo and conditioner in shower.
Work a humidity protection cream or serum all through your hair after towel drying it and then blow-dry and straighten it with a flat iron to stick down the cuticle for ultra-sleek strands.
Now pull your hair into a high center position above ears and secure with a ponytail holder. Addition of height and bulk will elegantly transform your plait from casual to glam.
Grab a small piece of hair from the tail and wind it around the base of your ponytail to hide the elastic and pin in place.
Spritz your hair with a liberal amount of smoothening serum for added gloss and to keep any flayaways in check.
Top off the hairstyle with a broad evening headband or hair-wrap for a special touch. If headbands are not your cup of tea, consider a flower or an embellished hair tie with rhinestones.
