1. Sleek Curly Ponytail

Going out with the girls? Be a little extra and rock your naturally curly hair by gathering it into a thick slicked-back ponytail letting baby hairs show your soft side.


2. Sleek Low Ponytail

A sleek low ponytail wrapped in a lock of your hair is all the drama you need to make a statement. Pull tendrils near your ears loose and use a curling iron to emphasize their curl.

Have an Ariana Grande moment and slay the night with a high pony. Make sure your locks are sleek and straight before you pull them high and tight.

Do you have long straight hair? An ombré color would give your sleek locks the glow-up they’re looking for to stand out from the crowd!


5. Sleek Ponytail on Straight Hair

Straight hair makes a statement when slicked back and pulled up in a high ponytail. A smooth serum controls frizz so you can dance the night away.

A mane like yours deserves a special style so why not go with a couple of highlights to show off your sleek low ponytail?

9. Invisible Ponytail

Balayage on a straight high pony makes a statement no one will ignore and everyone will think is stunning.

Not all ponytails have to be slicked back and perfect. Part the first half of your hair into two curly face-framing sections and the rest of your hair into a thick ponytail sure to stun.


11. Short Ponytail

Short hair can look super cute in a ponytail too! Pull your locks into a pony right at the crown of your head or lower to really show off cheekbones.


12. Blonde Sleek Ponytail

If you have long hair, make it look even longer by pulling it back into a smooth ponytail. Blonde highlights bring warmth to your face and add to the overall style.

Side ponytails serve all the attitude! For a different take on this classic favorite, take a few minutes to comb out a side part and style those baby hairs. Smooth with serum.


16. Sleek Ponytail with Weave

Another ponytail that makes a statement, this trendy take starts at the crown and uses a thick lock of hair to wrap around the ponytail.
