How to get the cheerleader ponytail:
Step 1: Blow-dry hair using mousse or spray for volume, then pull hair high on top of head (above your eyes). The sleeker, the better, so brush out any bumps.
Step 2: Secure with a thick elastic band. For added bounce, tease the hair right at the elastic.
Step 3: Skip the bow, but spritz with hairspray. Try a headband for a super-trendy look.
