Benefits of Ponytail Extensions 

Clip-in ponytails are a great way to elevate your look by adding some extra fierceness to any look and there is a lot of versatility with human hair ponytails. Ponytails are a great look to add to your collection because they are truly timeless. It is an easy and quick go-to look for a lot of people.

Ponytail extensions are designed to add thickness, volume, and length to a regular ponytail. With extensions, you can say goodbye to limp short ponytails and say hello to long voluminous ponytails. 

One of the greatest benefits of clip-in ponytails or ponytail extensions is that they elevate your unwashed hair into a look that will have heads turning. Girl, I have been there too. Some days we just aren’t down to wash our hair, and with ponytails, you don’t have to. 

Human hair ponytails can open up a new world of hair possibilities. There are so many hairstyles you can rock with a ponytail, and we go through them all. Anything is possible with extensions, so keep reading to figure out what look you are ready to slay next. 

How to Style Ponytail Extensions 

The first thing you want to do when styling your ponytail is to pull all your hair into a ponytail at whatever position you want. If you want a high pony, tie your hair at the crown of your head. If you are looking for a low pony, tie the hair at the nape of your neck. Want to rock a mid ponytail? No problem, pull all the hair to the middle of an imaginary line that connects the middle of your ears.

Then you want to brush through your clip-in ponytails or ponytail extensions to remove any tangles. Next is to secure the ponytail. Some extensions have clips already built-in that need to be applied, some may need to use bobby pins, or you can sew in your bundle extensions.

Next is to wrap the base of the ponytail with the hair extensions to conceal the band. You can use bobby pins to secure the hair in place. Now you are all ready to style the hair however you want! 

Sleek High Ponytail 

Trying to rock a sexy high pony like Zendaya? Create a ponytail at the crown of your head and use gel to slick all the hair back. Lay your baby hairs and attach the extensions to the ponytail. Then use a piece of the extension to wrap the base of the ponytail.

Top Knot

If you are looking for something that is easy to do and easy to maintain, try a top knot. The first thing you want to do is pull all your hair into a high ponytail. Use gel if you want a sleek look, and secure the extensions. 

Then you want to braid the hair, twist the hair in a single strand, or divide the ponytail into two pieces and twist it. Then wrap the hair around the base of the ponytail and secure it in place.

    human hair ponytail extension can be tied into a ponytail and can be styled in the same ways as natural hair. We carry real human hair, which is better for your own hair and can be worn multiple times.
