Your sleek top hair beautifully contrasts the curly ponytail. If you’re naturally curly, you just need to emphasize the curls by twirling sections of your hair with your fingers, with the help of hairspray. If you have straight hair, it’s best to curl it after making the ponytail to nail the sleek finish. Trust us; you’ll love the light and bouncy feel of your ponytail with your every move.

Perhaps you have lots of scarves lying around in your closet that you’ve already forgotten about. Don’t throw them away as they can be used for your next hairstyle–the scarf bun. Just roll the scarf lengthwise into a strip and twist your hair with it until it forms a bun. You can even match your scarf’s color to your OOTD!

4. Sleek and Fierce Ponytail

Nailing this sleek and fierce ponytail is definitely a hairstyle victory. It’s simple yet elegant and sophisticated. Make it look its best by making sure that your ponytail is smooth and free from tangles. We recommend using a straightening iron before making the ponytail to ensure that your hair has a nice drop and bounce.

5. Sleek Braid with Accessories

It’s easy to leave our hair elastics around when we don’t need them. But you can most definitely make good use of them by using them as an accessory to a simple low braid ponytail. After making your low ponytail, line up several elastics, then, finish off by braiding your hair. You can also use a gemmed clip over the base of your ponytail for the perfect evening look.

Sleek hairstyles never go out of style. So, master these hairstyles and look pretty all the time!
