Tips and tricks for getting the perfect hair wrapped ponytail:
1. The strand of hair you are using to wrap around the top needs to be not too thick and not too thin. If you are having trouble, you might need to add some hair to your strand, or take some out.
2. When initially making the ponytail, make sure your hair tie is tight enough to hold the ponytail in place, but not too tight so that you can't get your fingers through or pull the hair through it.
3. Use our video as a guide showing the points of reference and the direction the hair should be going. IE grabbing the strand from underneath the ponytail, wrapping the hair completely one time, pulling the hair back over in the opposite direction, etc. These steps are very simple, but if you don't follow them exactly, it may not work.
4. If you want the wrapped hair to stay sleek and clean looking, use hair product before you start to help control flyaways.
This simple ponytail look can be used for almost any occasion, from the most casual (school days, the beach, working out, shopping, etc) to the most formal or fancy. We've even seen girls wear a sleek hair wrapped ponytail to the Prom or for their wedding! This is probably the most timeless, popular, universal, and loved hairstyle of all time.
