Step 1

Gather your hair into a half ponytail.

Start off by gathering your hair up into a half-ponytail. Starting just above your ears, run your fingers to the back of your head and separate the entire top section of your hair. Use a thin hair tie to secure the half-ponytail in place. 

If you want to achieve a shinnier and smooth look, apply Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Smoothing Hair Serum from the mid-lengths of your hair through the ends.

Step 2

Poke a hole.

Use your fingers to create a hole between the hair tie and your roots, wiggling the hair tie down the ponytail until you have enough space to work with.
