How To: Smooth & Centered Low Ponytail

This week has been a doozy, and I'm glad it's over. I'm not sure if it's the new year, or if it's this time of year, but I'm currently in a no-fuss kinda mode.  I've been more into things being clean, simple, and easy. It's translated into my beauty routine as well.  Hair is even having a minimalist moment. Take today's hairstyle, for instance.  Seen all over the runways, the smooth and sleek low ponytail with a dramatic center part is so big right now. It adds instant sophistication and luckily for us, it can be easily recreated. I was sent some of the amazing new Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Smoothing collection and was really impressed with how well it worked. This is so easy, y'all.

First, a little background on my hair. It's naturally wavy, coarse, and is frizzy. The latter trait is even further enhanced thanks to the humidity of living in the South. Wavy, frizzy city, y'all. And I managed to sleek it down using just one product.

1-I think this is the first time I've shared my wet hair on the blog. Ha! Anyway, the first thing I did was apply Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Smoothing Light Weight Weather Proof Cream through my combed out damp hair.

2-Using this brush and a hair dryer, I straightened my hair. I skipped using the nozzle on the dryer here, since I'm using this type of brush, but use if you'd like.

If you already have straight hair, go ahead and part hair down the center then smooth over frizz and flyaways with a dime sized amount of the Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Smoothing Light Weight Weather Proof Cream.

3-Gather hair into a low ponytail and secure with a clear elastic (pictured above). Wrap a small section of hair from the ponytail around the elastic and secure with bobby pins.

4-Optional: Run a flat iron over the ponytail for an extra smooth finish.

That's it! Thanks to the Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Smoothing Light Weight Weather Proof Cream, this hairstyle has survived the crazy weather this week of rain, snow, sleet, and more rain. All WEEK! It's that good. Now, go get ya some!

  3. Great hair tutorial! I think my hair has been in a top knot all week, so this would be a good go-to instead. Have a great weekend.

  5. I enjoy learning about caring for girl-hair even though I don't have any. It's like people who like reading about yachts when they don't have one.

  24. You look lovely and I like low ponytails as well, just that for me, they don't suit very much - I tend to wear higher or at one side :) But a low ponytail is always so elegant!

  27. I never think to straighten m y ponytail but I rarely wear one unless i am pulling up hair up in the middle of the day.

  28. Telling the total truth here! Currently one of the tabs I have opened is a Google tab that says "smoothing gel for winter hair." I'm so on the hunt for something like that Suave product above. In the warmer mouths I let my hair air dry, but this -14 degree weather heck to the no. Sadly my hair is beginning to look blow dried. It's bad. I needed some advice. By tab, hello Elle's beauty advice. Thanks girl, have a great weekend! (:

  29. Love the smooth ponytail. I usually go for a a high ponytail or topknot when my hair is straightened. Think I'll try this next time. What kind of brush did you use? It looks cool.

  48. I am so lazy when it comes to my hair, I often don't blow dry it. And also because the ends of my hair tend to be really dry, so I'm always afraid of damaging it more with the blow dryer.

    I, personally, am not a fan of a low pony tale -- I think it bothers be having all my hair so close to my neck. If I'm going to put my hair away from my face, 9 times out of 10 I'm pulling it up for a high pony tale. That's just how I roll, lol! But I still enjoyed reading this tutorial. You're always so good at capturing the right picture for tutorials. :-) Love ya!
