How to use Hair Extensions to make Amazing Ponytails

How to Give Good Ponytails

  1. Use Older Hair Extensions:  You don't want to use your brand new shiny and silky hair extensions to make a ponytail.  It's rare that you opt for a ponytail with freshly blownout hair...usually its for 2-3 days post blowout.  So... make your hair extensions blend by using older sets for hair extensions from previous installations or a great set of ponytail ready clip in extensions.  Start by adding some texture and weight to the extensions with a little dry shampoo, hairspray or sea salt spray and then add some waves with a curling wand.  Clip In your hair extensionstowards the center of your head and then smooth into a ponytail.  
  2. Throw away your traditional ponytail holder:  Hairstylist will tell you some of the best ponytails are made without ponytail holders.  Try using an assortment of hair bungees and bobby pins to achieve a more voluminous ponytails that is still secure. 
  3. Smooth the perimeter:  Even if you opt for a messy ponytail you want to create a smooth perimeter. We love soft flexible products like Free Your Mane conditioning pomade or Redken Glass Anti Frizz Serum.
