Today, we’ve got an easy-to-follow tutorial for one of our fave DIY hairstyles. Read on to learn how to create this look at home.

The Polished Pony: Ponytails are one of the quickest and easiest ways to look polished in a hurry. From high and tight to low and textured, a polished pony is a good style to have in your DIY repertoire. For this look, you’ll need dry shampoo, a comb, a hair elastic, and your favorite hairspray or pomade.


  1. Spray your roots with your favorite dry shampoo and brush through
  2. Find your most complementing height. For a mid to low ponytail, use a comb to gently tease your crown to add a little extra oomph!
  3. Grab your favorite hair tie (we LOVE EmiJay hair ties!), look up, then gather your hair and secure your pony.
  4. Tame flyaways with a good strong hold hairspray or pomade.
  5. Expert Tip: Looking up while gathering and securing your pony will keep it from sagging!
