Today we’re tackling the one hairstyle that seems pretty easy, but not everyone gets right the first time. The perfect high sleek ponytail. There were certainly plenty of them on display at the Met Ball.
To put the icing on the cake, your arms are aching and you’re all hot and bothered!
Even when you try to redo it, the bumps are like whack-a-mole! When one bump disappears, another is revealed and it’s just a massive frustration!! Eugh!!
Take a breather.
Don’t listen to anyone who says a high sleek ponytail is easy because they clearly haven’t tried it themselves. Instead, listen to us. Here at Number 4 Hair Care we’ve rounded up the best tips on how to achieve this smooth and sleek look. You’re welcome!
Use A Bit Of Heat To Get Your Hair To Cooperate
A greasy mop is always something we thought would be needed for this hairstyle to help keep it all in place. But, washing your hair so you can use your hairdryer on the roots is a great way to perfect this hairstyle.
After using N4’s Hydrating Shampoo and Hydrating Condition, use N4’s Blow Dry Lotion to help with your styling and protecting your hair against heat. It’s the perfect product to help shape and control your strands when you style it, without leaving any heaviness or stickiness behind.
Simply distribute evenly between your damp locks and blow dry with your hair flipped down. We recommend using the heat and a brush in the same direction as your roots.
Create Your High Sleek Ponytail In Sections Rather Than Just Going For It In One Go
This will help make your pony much smoother, especially if you have a big head of hair. As you gather your hair make sure to smooth it with a brush, and put it in half a ponytail. Really work on smoothing your hair on the sides and at the top so it’s bump free.
Parfaite! Now you don’t have to worry about your high sleek ponytail wandering off to one side.
Always, ALWAYS use hair gel or hairspray to keep it in place
To finish the look, all you need to do is gather the rest of the hair that’s down and put it up in the ponytail! Make sure to smooth the sides, below your high sleek ponytail and on the top with hair gel to keep everything in place.
