New 'Do Every Day: Tatyana Ali’s Tight 'n' Low Pony

Yesterday we featured Shakira’s perky ponytail, but that’s not the only version of the always-good-for-summer style you can try. Tatyana Ali shows off a low ponytail, which looks extra put-together thanks to her supersmooth strands.

To get the look:

-Apply a smoothing serum through strands (like John Frieda Frizz-Ease, $9,, then straighten each 1-inch section with a flat iron.

-Make a diagonal part, then tightly pull all of your hair down and to the shoulder opposite your part line.

-Tie your hair with an elastic at the base of your neck. 

-Now wrap the ponytail around a 1-inch curling iron to create a soft wave just like Tatyana’s.
