A sleek, slicked-back ponytail will keep you looking put together even when frolicking around in the surf and sand. To recreate the sleek styles that took Fashion Week by storm, simply:
1. Smooth the hair with hairspray and a comb.
2. Tie into ponytail, high or low.
3. Take a small section of hair from the ponytail, smooth it with hairspray and wrap around the base of the ponytail and pin underneath.
4. Flat iron the ponytail for a sleek, smooth finish.
