1. WHIPLASH BRAID

You can’t go wrong with a classic braid. It’s an easy way to wear your pony and with the help of hair extensions you can customise the thickness, length and colour plus have the added bonus of protecting your own hair. Go for an extremely exaggerated length to get heads-turning (without the whiplash, of course).

2. WRAP-ROUND PONYTAIL BASE

Don’t give your weave secrets away. Take a strip of hair and wrap it around the base of your pony. To create a fountain effect, use more hair and wrap upwards.

Employing this technique will instantly make your ponytail oh-so-pretty!

3. GAUDY OMBRÉ

Pack a pony punch with a dose of colour. An ombré ponytail piece provides more flexibility to wear highoctane shades like pink, green and blonde, which most likely deviates from your day-to-day all-in-one.

4. OVERLY LONG

It’s all about the inches, darling! One-length hairpieces that exceed 20 inches and beyond are the bedrock to this glam girl look. Slick the base of your hair into a pony and play with texture by experimenting with bone-straight, wavy and even yaki style lengths.

5. SLEEK & SLAYED

Have your smoothing gel and edge tamers at the ready, because the polished ponytail is getting a lot of ‘likes’ on Instagram. The elements are an ultrasmooth base and sleek tailored edges that look almost artsy.
