How to Transform Your Look for Special Occasions Using Ponytail Extensions

Author

Graduations, prom, retirement dinners, anniversaries, the list goes on, and one of the special occasions that fill our lives. For every special occasion, we want to look our best. While wardrobe is nice, it is not usually the first thing people notice about each other.

Hair draws the eye and gives that ever-important first impression. Because of the importance of eye contact in our society, celebrities like Ariana Grande and Kim Kardashian have embraced the versatile ponytail extension.

Even if our hair lacks the thickness and length to be styled in many popular styles, we can have the size and thickness to wow people with a simple clip-in ponytail extension.

Once we have our ponytail extension, choosing the right style for the occasion is difficult!

Family Reunions and Casual Occasions with Friends and Family

When you need a laid-back but stylish hairstyle, the revered ponytail is hard to go wrong with. This classic look is easily achievable with ponytail extensions, made popular by Barbie in the 1950s and still turning heads today. It is also commonly known as a high ponytail style.

This one is great for beginners with ponytail extensions. Because it has added length, it is easier to conceal and blend the hair clip with your hair.

  1. Prepare your natural hair. Begin by brushing your natural hair, being sure to remove all knots. If your hair is a little dry, use a leave-in conditioner or some hair oil as you begin. After letting the conditioner soak in for a few minutes, just clean off any residue with a paper towel.
  2. Put it up. Now, fasten your hair up with a hair tie. Be sure it is securely fastened so it doesn’t move but is still comfortable.
  3. Softer look: To create a smoother and more approachable look, allow some hair fringe to hang loose.
  4. Clip in the ponytail extension. Now, fasten the ponytail extender to the desired spot. You want it high enough to blend with your hair but low enough to look natural.
  5. Cover the clip. Once you have attached the ponytail extension, weave the extra hair at the end of the elastic over the clip to hide it. Use bobby pins to hold it in place.
  6. Blend with your natural hair. Use some of your hair hanging above the ponytail extension to weave into and around the ponytail, creating a more realistic look.

This style can be worked with scrunchies or bows to add a personal flair and style to a classic hairstyle.

Dinner Party, Social Function, Any Occasion with a Dress Code is the Perfect Time to Wear a High Ponytail Extension

One of the great things about a high ponytail using ponytail extensions is the ability to look a tad taller. When selecting the ponytail extension for this look, be sure to have a medium to long length. A short ponytail extension will not work well.

  1. Prepare the natural hair for the ponytail extension. Before you install the ponytail extension, you want to remove any knots. While brushing, work on smoothing your hair as you go. A little styling mousse can help.
  2. Move the hair as you brush. Once the knots are out, brush the hair onto the crown of your head.
  3. Clip in the hair extension. Once you have clipped in the hair extension at the base in the center of the back of your head, it is time for blending.
  4. Blend.Blend your birth hair with the ponytail extension as you wind it high into a cone shape on your head. The higher you go, the more sophisticated the look.
  5. Securing and covering. Use the hair at the end of the elastic strap to cover up the ponytail extension clip. Mixing a few of your hair will give the illusion that it is all your natural hair.

For a more sophisticated look, keep the hair piled and secured so well that a hurricane will not budge it. For a more relaxed and approachable look, have the end of the ponytail extension drape down by your ear.

For Any Occasion, you Fancy or Relaxed, and a Low Pony Made with a Ponytail Extension can Create the Look you Need

The biggest thing to remember with a low pony is that the part is critical. For the most versatile and stylish low pony look, you want a middle part. These work very well with thin or short hair because you can use a shorter ponytail extension to better blend with your natural hair.

While stressful, you can relax and dance the night away if you feel a high ponytail slipping with the low pony. The low pony sits at the lower center of your neck. This allows the ponytail extension to sit securely without sliding out of position.

  1. Moisturize.The low pony will be more effective if you moisturize the hair before you begin. As soon as you brush the hair, apply a small amount of leave-in conditioner to the middle to ends of each hair. Allow five to eight minutes for it to be absorbed by the hair. Then, wipe the excess with a soft towel.
  2. Create the center part. Part your hair down the top center of your head. Then, move the hair into sections, allowing it to drape towards your neck’s back.
  3. Gather and tie. Ensure the hair is smooth and secure it all with a hair tie.
  4. Install the ponytail extension under your natural hair’s ponytail. This will allow your ponytail to blend with the extension, creating a seamless look.
  5. Cover and secure. Use the extra hair and elastic band to secure the low pony while covering up any sign of the clip.

If you need some added security to hold it all in place, you can use additional hair ties or a couple of bobby pins. If your frizzy hair just won’t lay flat, use some gel. But remember, a little goes a long way.
