Is This The Secret To A Perfect Ponytail?

I can’t speak for anyone else but I usually spend all of 2 minutes on my hair every morning.

More often than not, I end up sticking it up in a ponytail which either looks like I’ve been dragged through a hedge backwards or I haven’t washed my hair in 5 days.

But it seems there is a simple trick to achieving the perfect ponytail and all you need is an elastic band along with two bobby pins.

Kristina Youssef, a stylist from Australia, demonstrated the hack on her Instagram account a few months ago but it was recently spotted by Pop Sugar.
