hi guys welcome back I am so excited for

today’s video some share with you some

really awesome ponytails that you could

rock for any occasion I tried to come up

with ponytails I would sue everyone’s

style so I did a chic one a more

effortless one and an elegant one so

you’ll have to let me know which looks

your favorite but that’s all I have to

say for now so let’s go ahead and turn

it first ponytail is sleek and chic I

love it so much so start with your hair

pin straight and apply your favorite gel

or pomade I’m just using my go-to from

Herbal Essences to smooth away the

flyaways next together all your hair

where you want your ponytail to sit and

I find using a fine-tooth comb will

really help give you that smooth and

sleek appearance now it could take some

time to get it perfect I had to redo

mine about three times oh and don’t

forget about those neck hairs now I love

the appearance of the hair crossing over

the ear so just hold your hair tight and

use the end of your comb to slide

underneath your side section and then

slightly play outwards to loosen it and

then just smooth it back over your ear

once you’re happy with the look just

secure your hair into a tight low

ponytail and then feel free to pull out

some small sections to frame your face

okay the fun part grab about a one-inch

size section of hair from the top of

your ponytail and depending on the

amount of hair that you have you might

want to grab a larger section make sure

it’s nice and smooth and begin tightly

wrapping it around your ponytail as

you’re wrapping you’ll want your hair to

sit below at the previous wrap to create

that tube effect now as you’re wrapping

your section is going to get shorter and

shorter so with about two to three

inches remaining grab another 1 inch

section from the underside of your

ponytail and just join it into that

first section once joined in continue

wrapping as far down your ponytail as

you like now if you have layers just try

to make sure that you’re grabbing the

longest piece of hair you can find once

you’re happy with the length of the wrap

just grab another 1 inch piece of hair

and join it into your sections once it’s

joined in begin wrapping back up your

ponytail until you reach your head

your hair is too short to continue

wrapping just bring it up the underside

of your ponytail once you’ve reached

your head grab a bobby pin and begin

tightly wrapping your ends around one

side of the bobby pin to hold them in

place once they’re wrapped slide your

bobby pin up the underside of your

ponytail behind your hair elastic and

then just secure it with the second

bobby pin and that’s it really simple

really chic and perfect for a night out

second ponytail is effortless yet can be

dressed up so start with tousled waves

I used a 1 and a quarter inch barrel and

I’m just adding some dry shampoo

this one’s from chlorine I love using it

to add volume at the crown but you could

also tease your hair quickly I’m just

actually me off my bag so I placing my

finger about an inch back from my

hairline and just tracing down to the

front of my ear and I’m just clipping

these away ok time to get to work grab

about a one-inch section of hair at your

part near the front of your face I’m

just going to sneak in a one clip weft

underneath this section and join it in

to help add extra thickness next grab

another 1 inch section of hair just

below that previous one at your hairline

and don’t worry about these sections

being too perfect and then same thing I

just snuck in another one clip weft and

just joined it into my section now with

these two sections we’re going to create

a lace rope braid first step take the

bottom section and you’re going to bring

it up and in front of your top section

and you’re going to bring your top

section down so we crossed one over the

other

now to create the lace portion of the

rope braid super simple you want to add

hair into only the bottom section I find

it easiest to cross the bottom section

over first just like the last step and

then add in the hair so gather about a

one-inch section of hair from your

hairline doesn’t need to be perfect just

make sure it’s completely sectioned off

to prevent tangles and then cross it up

and over joining it into that top

section so now you want to repeat the

same steps and try to direct the twist

towards the back of your head so again

cross that bottom section up and

runs of your top section bringing that

top section down and then grab a

one-inch size section of hair from your

hairline and ensure it’s completely

sectioned off and then cross it up and

join it into that top section you just

want to continue those same steps

sometimes when I create a lace rope

braid it comes out too loose and that’s

because I didn’t grab enough sections

and I rushed through it so remember if

the smaller sections you grab the more

detailed and tighter it will be so

continue lace rope braiding directing

the braid towards the middle of the back

of your head where you want your

ponytail to sit and continue grabbing

one-inch sections from your hairline as

you move along I did this same braid

with a slightly different technique in

another tutorial that you might find

helpful as well so I’ll link that down

below once you’ve reached the back of

your head hold your twists tightly and

my favorite part gently pull on the tops

of your twists to fan them out this is

going to give them a nice full

appearance and this is where the

extensions really come in handy all

right clip your twist to the back of

your head give your arms a break and

feel free to repeat this on the other

side if you like now begin gathering all

the remaining hair where you want your

ponytail to sit I chose about ear height

and then you just want to secure

everything together tightly with a hair

elastic once secure just pull in small

sections of hair around your crown to

add even more volume you guys know the

drill to glam up the ponytail grab a

one-inch section of hair from the

underside and just begin wrapping around

your ponytails to hide your elastic and

then wrap your ends around one side of a

bobby pin and then slide it up behind

your elastic on the underside of your

ponytail now section off about the top

third of your ponytail and just clip it

out of the way and then begin working in

small horizontal sections using the

remaining hair near the base of your

ponytail this will help give it that

nice full appearance now let down the

top section to hide the teasing and just

smooth it all down one last step a

little trick that I like to do insert

two

beep into the middle of your ponytail

one on the left and one on the right and

push them down towards the base of your

neck and this will just help to perk up

your ponytail and there we have it a

really pretty ponytail that’s perfect

for summer third we have an easy and

elegant ponytail so start with loose

waves or curls and starting on the left

side place your finger at the back of

your part and begin tracing down towards

the middle of your neck then just

section off your hair and throw it over

your shoulder placing it out of the way

for now and then repeat the same thing

on the right side tracing from the back

of your part to the middle of your neck

sectioning this off and then just

placing it out of the way for now next

to gather all the remaining hair at the

back of your head and you should still

have some hair down by the nape of your

neck that we sectioned off earlier once

you’ve gathered all your hair just

secure it into a tight low ponytail all

right now turn your ponytail into a

Topsy tail by sectioning your hair in

the middle right above your hair elastic

creating a little hole make sure it’s

nice and sectioned and then flip your

ponytail up and then pull it through the

hole and it should slide through pretty

easily and there you have it now you

have a Topsy tail and we’re going to

make it pop anchor your ponytail with

one hand and with your index finger and

thumb on your other hand to start

pulling on small sections of hair on

your twist to help add fullness and

really make your twists stand up make

sure you also pull on small sections of

hair around the crown of your head to

help add volume and it just makes this

hairstyle look more detailed and

intricate have fun with this and don’t

be afraid to really pull apart these

sections alright first Topsy tail done

now grab your left section of hair from

earlier and your right section and just

join them together just below our

previous Topsy tail and then secure them

together with a small clear hair elastic

and then same thing as before

flip your ponytail up and pull it

through to create a twisted Topsy tail

and then tighten it so that it covers

that previous hair less

and then have some fun with it pulling

small sections of hair at the top of

your twist to help make them pop and

then as well on the sides to create that

pretty swoop detailing over your ear and

that’s it super quick and the perfect

ponytail for any occasion

guys I can’t pick a favorite this time I

love them all they’re just so fun and

flirty and I love that you can dress

these down or a dress them up for a

special occasion but I’d love to know

your thoughts in the comments down below

and please let me know which ponytail

was your favorite but thank you guys so

much for watching and I’ll talk to you
