Wash your hair properly
The first and foremost thing is to wash your hair properly. It is important not to leave it rough otherwise you might end up losing a lot of hair while combing them.
Allow the hair to dry
Once you have washed your hair, allow it to dry naturally. You can use a towel to gently rub your head, which will help in drying it a bit quickly.
Brush your hair gently
Next thing is to brush your hair smoothly, so that there is no roughness left. You can use a wide teethed comb as well, but a hairbrush is recommended.
Assemble all your hair on one side of the head
Once you get smooth dry hair, it is now time to gather it on one side of your head. You can now decide whether to make a one way side ponytail or a two way. You can choose whatever seems cooler to you.
Divide your hair in segments
Depending on what you have decided, divide your hair into different sections. You need to take a chunk of it in front of your face and leave the rest behind on one side. If you are making a two way ponytail, you will have to leave some hair on both sides.
Tie your hair and use a hair spray
Tie your hair now and use a hair spray to keep the ponytail in your desired position. Remember not to use a brush once you have used the spray, as that can cause a slight damage.
Use bobby pins to keep the rest of your hair in position
Finally you can use bobby pins to keep your hair segmented in different positions. Now you can go out partying with friends with a beautiful fancy side ponytail.
