Comb your hair, removing any tangles or snarls
Add a dollop of styling mousse or pomade to give just-dried hair some weight and texture. Brush hair into the ponytail.
Separate a small section the hair. For shorter hair separate the longer section the hair.
Wrap this section the hair around the ponytail. As you work, try to keep the hair close to your head as possible to make your ponytail tight.
Hold the hair fork with sharp tooth UP. Scoop with a fork a very small part of the of the hair on the top of the ponytail and gently angle the fork down to the scalp.
