Nothing feels better than whipping a long ponytail and knowing that you are SL-AY-ING, just like the beautiful Gabrielle Union (pictured above). So in today's post, we're sharing our top tips for getting a sleek, slayable ponytail in just a few steps!

What will you need?
Some people prefer to use gel, however, if you want your hair to be sleek AF with absolutely no waves then we recommend using edge control and beeswax. If your hair is especially kinky then Ebin's Extreme Firm Hold Edge Tamer is going to be your new best friend! You're also going to need a brush (a boar bristle brush or a round brush will work best), a comb, a few hair bands and some moisturizing holding spray.
First Step: Sleekness
To get your hair super sleek take your hair in small sections and alternate between the edge control and the beeswax, smoothing your hair as you go. Start at the back of your head and slowly make your way to the front. As you secure each section with a hairband, spray your holding spray to lock in in place. Once you're finished and all of your hair is secured in a bun, wrap your hair, preferably overnight, to set your hairstyle.

Next, apply your ponytail and use the drawstring to attach it to your bun. You can take a little hair from the ponytail and wrap it around to make it look even more realistic. Click here to watch this in action or watch the full video from TheBrilliantBeauty below!
