It’s taken me a while to figure out how to master a ponytail with volume and I have finally found something that seems to work!! ย With just a few easy steps, here’s how you can get a perky pony too.

What you’ll need:

-hair band

-a small plastic stretchy band (you can find these at Wal Mart or Sally’s)

-a few bobby pins

-a hair clip


I usually use this ponytail strategy on the days where I haven’t washed my hair and need an easy up-do. ย  Brush your hair out and get out any tangles.

Separate the top portion of your hair and secure with a clip. ย Gather the bottom portion of your hair and secure with a ponytail holder.

Take the clip out and tease the crown of your hair. ย Fluff it on up, y’all. ย Gather all of the hair that’s down and pull it back with the ponytail you’ve already secured.

Gather all of the hair together around the ponytail. ย Take the small plastic hair band and secure all of the hair together. ย Don’t wrap more than twice or the little sucker will probably pop and I’m warning you now — it hurts.

Feel free to tease some of the ponytail to fluff it up.

Grab a piece of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the hair band, securing with a bobby pin.

ย Ta da! ย Easy breezy — ย a ponytail with a little more attitude, or as I like to say, kattitude. Thanks for reading! XO
