How to tie a Secure Ponytail...

Gal pal showed me this little trick a while ago. Even though SG no longer has long locks, I still want to share this with everyone.
I used to just tie a ponytail with one elastic band but after an hour or so my do is not longer secure and pristine. The trick is to:

1. Tie a half ponytail first with an elastic band
2. Then secure rest of the locks together with the half ponytail with a 2nd elastic band. With this little adjustment, SG has no issue with her ponytail for hours and my ponytail looks fuller. (That is before I cut everything off!)

Do you have a ponytail trick?

  1. as someone who relies on pony tails nearly everyday, i try little tricks to help out.

    1. spray my hand with hair spray, then lightly go over the top of my head to calm fly aways.

    2. wrap a piece of hair around the rubberband so it looks slic and polished (not lazy and dirty).

  3. I sometimes do that, but I often use two hairbands and a ribbon.

    I'm not a fan of hairspray.

  4. The tighter the better...pullback hard for instant face lift...whatever helps these days!

  7. I have A LOT of hair and this trick usually works for me. Another thing I do is grab a lock and wrap it around the elastics and then secure that with a small bobby pin...it looks more finished and classier, I think. rather than show a boring elastic, there's my hair wrapped around instead. :)

  11. interesting technique - my hair is too short for a decent ponytail, but once it finally grows out a little bit more - I'll defs be giving this a try!
