How to: Rochas ultra low ponytail

It’s always good to start any hairstyling process with a good prepping routine. For this look, the hair should be straight and smooth so it’s best to apply an anti-frizz serum on damp hair before doing anything else. For extra protection, you can also use some heat protecting spray.

Dry your hair straight with a blow dryer and a paddle brush.

Create a center part then iron 1 inch sections of your hair to make it poker straight.

Once you’ve made your hair really straight, gather it going to your nape but make sure you leave some strands loose in front to frame your face.

If you want to get this look with the headband, take a rectangular piece of cloth or a bandana and just put it over your forehead. Make it go on top of the loose sections of your hair and then tie it over your low ponytail. If you don’t want to use a headband you can skip this part and go to the next step.
