A ponytail doesn’t just have to be a hairstyle you can wear to the gym. This versatile hairstyle can be worn anywhere from a glam party to that important job interview you’ve been preparing for the last few days the classic ponytail never disappoints. It is absolutely a timeless hairstyle. One of the reasons why we love ponytails so much is that they’re so easy to create—it’s the perfect hairstyle for when you want to look put-together but don’t have much time to spare. That said, despite being simple, an easy ponytail hairstyle is still attractive. Want to take yours to the next level? Below, we’re bringing you a few more creative ways you can spice up your everyday super-chic ponytail.
HOW DO YOU CREATE THE PERFECT PONYTAIL?
Getting a ponytail just right is easier said than done. Take these tips into consideration the next time you want to pull your long hair or medium hair into a pony.
STEP 1: DETERMINE WHERE YOU WANT TO PLACE YOUR PONYTAIL
The first thing you need to consider when creating the perfect ponytail is placement. Where you decide to place your ponytail will determine how you should go about creating your hairdo. For example, high ponytails that are level with your temples or above can give your hair more bounce. Lower ponytails have less movement but look glossy and they are up to date also.
STEP 2: BRUSH YOUR HAIR THE RIGHT WAY
This may sound silly, but there is a right way to brush your hair when it comes to creating a ponytail hairstyle. If you want to help keep frizzy hair and bumps from making an appearance, brush your hair in the direction of your ponytail.
STEP 3: ADD TEXTURE
Adding texture to your hair can create a more voluminous look. After all, nobody wants a flat ponytail, right? Spray a volumizing hair spray, onto your hair and use your fingers to muss your hair up a little. If you want to create even more texture, comb back your hair after spritzing on hairspray.
STEP 4: HELP TAME FLYAWAYS
Flyaway can completely ruin your hairdo. Now, let us just say, this hair hack might sound super-weird, but it actually works! Use a toothbrush (one that hasn’t been used, of course) and spritz it with hair spray. Then use the toothbrush to brush down and tame those pesky flyaways.
Editor’s note: We mentioned this hairstyle is great for long and medium-length hair, but what about short hair? Don’t be afraid, having short strands won’t rule this lookout! Simply use these same steps to create a half-up ponytail.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO MAKE YOUR PONYTAIL LOOK FULLER?
Looking for ways to get a fuller, thicker-looking ponytail? Well, we’re sharing four different tips for doing just that
METHOD 1: TRY A DOUBLE PONYTAIL
Comb your hair and if you can have some waves in it, it is better. Split your hair into two sections, one on the top of your head and one on the lover part. Gather the two sections with two different elastics as you can see in the picture. Tease the hair a little bit and hide the elastic from the bottom section with the hair from the upper part. The hairstyle is done!
METHOD 2: USE BOBBY PINS
Never let your ponytail fall flat during the day. Prop it up with two or three bobby pins after you’ve tied your hair. Slide the bobby pins over the hair tie on the bottom part of the ponytail. Place them at a steep, diagonal angle and they’ll lift your ponytail for a heightened look.
METHOD 3: TEASE YOUR HAIR IN SECTIONS
Teasing a ponytail can help to make your hair look fuller—but how it’s done is what matters the most. Most people backcomb their ponytails in one section using a fine-toothed comb. If you really want to add the appearance of volume, split your ponytail into thirds and tease each section to add even more volume.
METHOD 4: FAKE VOLUME WITH A MINI CLIP
All you need to do is split your ponytail in half, stick a small claw clip inside, and hide it with the top section of your hair. This can leave you with a more voluminous finish. MCSARA clip in hair extension is always the best choice for added length and volume for your natural hair.
