Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Want to learn how celebrity stylists manage to create a perfect high ponytail? Then check out our tips…
5 Easy Ways To Rock Your Perfect High Ponytail
1. Stack ‘em up
One ponytail’s better than two! If you want to make your pony look fuller without any effort, you can do this easily if you simply stack one on top of the other.
Here’s how to do it
Divide your hair into two sections, and put a rubber band on the second one. You want to make sure that the top ponytail is around the crown of your head. Next, make another ponytail from the rest of your hair, and make sure to position it right below the upper one. Once you’re done with that, grab a comb and tease the upper section a tiny bit to give it more volume. You’re done!
Since the upper section will be teased and a little fluffy, it should cover up the bottom section. No one will even know that you’re wearing two ponytails, it’ll look like you just naturally have a ton of volume. Put a little hair spray if you like, and you can go about your day with a fabulous hairstyle.
2. Don’t be afraid of Extensions
Perfect High Ponytails can really highlight just how thin or thick our hair is. If you have naturally fine, silky hair that’s kind of greasy on top of everything, chances are you struggle to give it any real volume. Well, don’t worry. The number one celebrity trick for sexy hair is extensions. Yep, we’re not lying. If you actually look at their pictures without extensions, you’ll see that these ladies don’t really have Disney princess hair in real life.
If you want to try this trick, it’s very important to find the right product. If you have naturally fine hair, then your best bets are virgin Russian hair extensions or something else that will match both your hair color and texture. Virgin hair means that it’s never been dyed or chemically processed before and that it’s all real, natural hair. Synthetic extensions are fine, they just don’t look nearly as good as real human hair.
Try clip-ins for some quick volume to add to your perfect high ponytail, or try permanent or semi-permanent options for lasting volume.
3. Bobby Pins to the Rescue
How do you get your perfect high ponytail to look at all bouncy instead of just dropping down after an hour of wear? Use bobby pins. You’ll need two of them to pull off this trick. Simply tie your hair into a high pony, and then use two bobby pins to prop the tail up from the back. You can make the pins go under the hair elastic to keep them hidden from view.
This trick takes about two minutes, and yet it’s super effective.
4. Texturize for Success
If your hair elastic keeps slipping, it might mean your hair is too silky and soft. While this is nice because it means your hair is well cared for, it can make it difficult to get volume and have a hairstyle stick.
So, before you even begin pulling your hair into a perfect high ponytail, give it a little texture. You can do this with a salt spray or a texturizing spray that you can find in all drugstores, or you can use some volumizing powder or even dry shampoo. All of these products will make your hair look thicker and they’ll help it not only look less greasy but hold a hairstyle better.
5. Braid the Problematic Strands
Are there any strands that keep falling out of your ponytail? Braid them. You can make Dutch braids on pretty much any section of your hair, and you’ll not only help those rebellious strands stay in place, but you’ll have a pretty interesting ponytail to wear.
A perfect high ponytail is a very versatile hairstyle. It can work both for an everyday trendy look, but it can also be made to look very glamorous and elegant. Experiment with our tips and soon you’ll be able to make the perfect high ponytail of your dreams.
