So I’m brushing the hair straight back, going to take that section of hair, and I’m just using a hairbrush to very lightly tease it. My hair likes to split in the back, so I typically just do a little bit of teasing just to make sure that everything stays together. This is one step that I don’t do every time. I thought I would show you guys today, so you can see the full effect, but this is definitely something that you can skip, especially if you’re not a fan of teasing.
So I just did a bit of teasing and I’m smoothing it out now. And then I’m going to sweep it back and together with the first ponytail. So basically we’re going to pull these two ponytails together into one. And as I do that, I’m also going to look at how it looks from the front and make sure that I like the way that it’s arranged. And this is one reason why I like doing the ponytail in two halves, ’cause all I have to do right now is deal with the top half and get it perfectly the way that I want it. Then to secure it.
I’m actually going to use a DIY hair bungee. You guys have seen me do this before, where I take an elastic and I put a bobby pin at either end and I use that to secure my ponytail. But you can use a normal elastic here and it will be totally fine.
To use the DIY one, all you have to do is stick the bobby pin in one side, wrap the elastic around, and then pin in the other side. And this helps to kind of secure your hair without messing up all the arranging we just did. But if that seems way too over-achiever to you, just use a normal hair elastic and it will work just as well. And you can look here and see that doing the ponytail in two steps actually made the base of my ponytail a lot bigger and it provided more lift for the top of my hair, providing the illusion of having more volume.
To finish off adding even more volume, I’m going to add one more clip in by separating the top half of the ponytail in half and then I’m just going to clip it in just like we did before.
Again, this is adding volume to the base of your ponytail to make your hair look a lot bigger than it actually is. You can see here the before versus the after. My after ponytail looks way more volumize than the before.
