A Polished Ponytail in 7 Minutes

Forget the ponytail-as-afterthought. Instead do a quick tease for an easy retro-glam version. Start by creating a deep side part, then tuck face-framing strands behind your ears.
Now, starting at your crown, begin teasing tresses: Hold up a 1-inch section of hair, pulling it forward, and spritz with hairspray. Using a teasing brush with boar bristles, slowly brush hair from midshaft to roots about three times. Spray with hairspray before letting it fall.
Repeat until you’re 3 to 4 inches from your hairline. Comb a small section of hair from the front over the pouf. Smooth, being careful not to comb out the volume. Gather everything back into a ponytail. Secure with clear elastic.
