Bonus style tip: The sleek natural ponytail can pass off as a cute summer look too.

How to do a Sleek Natural Ponytail

What you need

  • Styling gel
  • Styling mousse
  • Fine tooth comb
  • Bristle brush
  • Toothbrush/edge brush
  • Elastic hair tie

Step 1: Part your hair

  • You can start with freshly washed hair or not.
  • Make your preferred part either a side or middle part with a fine-tooth comb.
  • Apply some styling mousse to your roots, smooth it down your hair and finger detangle.

Step 2: Sleek your hair down in sections

  • First, divide your hair into 3 sections, apply your gel to the topmost part of your hair, and smooth it down with a bristle brush.
  • Repeat for the other sections.
  • When you get to the hair at the front where your parting is, divide it into smaller sections and sleek down each section of hair gently.
  • Then gather all your hair into a secure low ponytail and smooth down any flyaway hairs.

Step 3: Lay your edges

  • Go in with a fine-tooth and style your baby hairs however you want.
  • Now, sleek them down with a toothbrush or edge brush.
  • Rock your sleek natural ponytail as desired.
  • At the end of the video, Bri Hall also showed how to achieve this ponytail look with extensions. All you need to do is wrap your low ponytail into a bun and attach a natural ponytail extension to it for more volume and definition.
