Tools:
A hairbrush

2. Take a small section of hair from the ponytail (about a half inch thick) and pull it aside.

3. Wrap the section of hair around the ponytail to hide the elastic and secure with a bobby pin. Spritz the ponytail with hairspray (or smoothing pomade, if you prefer) and comb through to smooth the tail.
