Pull the lower sections of your hair into a ponytail with a flat brush and secure with a bungee or tie.

Step 5 Smooth
Smooth hair back with your fingers and a little hairspray to control flyaways and give it some extra shine and sleekness.
Step 6 Tease
Gently tease the top sections of your hair for a small lift.
