Ponytail Hairstyles That Make Hair Up
Want to change up your look? Put your hair up in a ponytail. It’s a simple way to give any hairstyle a boost, and you can wear it anywhere—to work, to the gym, or out on the town.
Today, women put their hair up into a ponytail when they are feverishly working on a project over their desks and on their laptops, creating something artistic, trying to keep cool, keeping it out of their faces during yoga or lifting weights, dancing the night away, and so on. The hairstyle has been changed over the years; it can be short, long, or super-long with hair extensions and it can be put up with everything from hair ties to pins and sometimes even pens.
The Ponytail Princess
To start your extensions, grab some hair from the front of your head and tie it in a loose ponytail. Then, grab some hair at the crown of your head and make a small ponytail about an inch thick with a thin elastic. This will be your base ponytail. Next, slide a four kinky curly clip in hair extensions weft directly under the base ponytail. It’s important not to put the weft upside down – this could lead to bumps later on when you have all your hair pulled up in a tight ponytail.
To apply for the extensions, part your hair into two even sections, then gather all of your hair directly above each ear and apply for the extensions with hair secure elastic as pictured. Once you've finished applying for the extensions, gather all of the pieces into a high clip in long ponytail hair extensions and lightly brush them for a smooth finish. Tease the ponytail for added volume, then pin any flyaways back and hairspray the entire style for a sleek look.
The Duchess Ponytail
The former Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, sported a middle part and sleek ponytail during a tour of Australia with Prince Harry. The look looked effortless and was a change from her usual bun or waves. The look is reminiscent of that classic chic we can all strive for and since it’s good for the Duchess, it’s good for us too!
The Bey pony
Re-created her look from the 2012 Met Gala. She wore a highly pinned ponytail with curls cascading over one shoulder. This is a ponytail that most women would look great in and it is perfect for any occasion. Her ponytail and dress are so full of elegance and power, while her beauty and glamour made her the of this year’s event. The hair trend of 2017 is focused on volume, so add some volume to your side pony by purchasing Halo Couture tape extensions balayage.
