One hairstyle that every girl should master in her repertoire is the high ponytail. From sleek and sexy to playful and perky, ponytails have been a style staple for women since the 50s, and don't seem to be leaving. Not only are ponytails fundamental simply because they're functional, but the perfect high ponytail can take your garb from "I just threw this on" to "It's a look."
All the same, a great ponytail starts before a new day does by insuring smooth and silky hair. Beer is not just for social evenings, it can also preserve the maximum shine of your locks. Since beer is rich in proteins and vitamin B, it keeps the cuticles of the scalp closed, thereby enhancing the hair shine. Rinse your hair with some beer. Next, add Coconut oil to your hair. Coconut oil is the most awesome tip to make your hair silky in one night. Apply and massage coconut oil on your hair in such a way that every strand gets coated with the oil. Then run a comb through your hair and braid it nicely. In addition, apply a bit of conditioner on your wet hair in a uniform way, especially on the hair ends. Comb your hair with a wide-toothed comb. Then twist your hair to make a loose bun and secure it with a shower cap before going to bed. Use satin pillow covers while sleeping. This will make your hair softer and silkier when you wake up the next morning. Morning next, release the bun so that you get a shiny and frizz-free mane, shampoo your hair to wash off the oil and get silky and shiny hair.Now that a new day has come the key to the perfect high pony lies in thickness, volume, and texture. Regardless of your hair type. It all starts with clip-in hair extensions, the trick to adding instant length and volume to your hair. Seamless hair extensions are perfect for this ponytail hairstyle, as they are bound with silicone at the root of the weft, allowing them to lie completely flat against the head. Second-day hair is the best kind of hair to work with for textured and volumed hairstyles, as the hair tends to hold better with minimal hairspray or hair product required. If you can't wait a day before wearing this hairstyle, give your hair a quick spritz of sea salt spray to add some grit and texture.
- Separate a section of 2-3 inches at the front of your face on either side. If you need, clip the rest of your hair away to hold it back. In order to create a lifted look at the back, apply some dry shampoo at the roots and backcomb your hair with a teasing brush for added volume.
- Separate a section of hair at your ears. Then, take a 4-clip weft and clip it in upside down at the roots, in the direction that the ponytail will be gathered. This will allow the wefts to lie completely flat without pulling at the roots.
- Separate another section of hair at the crown of your head and clip a 3-clip weft in upside down. If you have naturally thicker hair, you can add a few more layers of wefts, or even stack 2 wefts together to a create a thicker weft.
- Once you are satisfied with the placement of your wefts, gather your hair into a ponytail (leaving the front sections from earlier out) and secure it into a high ponytail.
- Separate layers of your ponytail and tease each layer at the roots with a teasing brush to add extra lift.
- Moving toward the front of your head, clip two 1-clip wefts in behind the separated section of hair, toward the back. Then, gather your natural hair over the wefts, and clip all the hair back for now. Repeat on the other side.
- Gather both front sections of hair, including the 1-clip wefts, brushing the hair back with a Loop Hair Extensions brush. A loop brush will ensure that the wefts do not pull at the roots, as it glides easily over clipped in wefts. Then, join all the hair into the back ponytail, securing with another elastic.
- Spray some hairspray underneath the ponytail as well as over your head to smoothen down fly-a-ways.
A touch of KIPOZI for a Ponytail with volume
- Now for the tousled look. Using a KIPOZI 1 inch-curling wand, wrap 1-inch pieces of hair from the ponytail around the wand. For a messier look, curl each section in alternating directions.
- Once everything is curled, use a dry salt spray or texturizing mousse to mess the ponytail up and create a beachier, tousled look. Apply the product on the ends of the ponytail, and scrunch upwards for extra volume.
- Using a teasing brush, tease the top of the ponytail again for even more volume, then add some cute hair clips to complete the look.
