How to Get a Ponytail Bump

I'm sure we would all love to have elegant up-dos or flowing wavy locks on a regular basis but the truth is most of us have busy schedules, long hours, and crazy mornings. Spending an hour on hair each morning simply isn't a reality.

That's why I love styles that make me look put-together and pretty, but only take about as long as my Keurig takes to brew my coffee. That is why I’m all about a stylish ponytail!

To create a stylish ponytail all you need is 1 bobby pin, 1 no-damage elastic hair band, a tail comb {a comb with the long skinny handle}, and your choice of hairspray.

Here’s all you have to do to achieve a smooth pony:

1. Comb hair into ponytail leaving a tiny section out from the base of the ponytail and wrap elastic band around the ponytail.
2. Add height to the crown area by inserting the tail of the comb through the hair above the elastic and lift away from the head {just a little bit at a time}.
3. When you've reached your desired volume, lightly spray any fly-aways and gently smooth over using the tail of the comb. Then take the left out lock of hair and wrap it around the base of the ponytail, covering the elastic band.
4. Place a bobby pin around the end of the wrapped lock and tuck underneath the ponytail and elastic to secure it. Lightly spray again if needed.

If you’re going for a messy ponytail don't comb your hair first but simply finger hair into ponytail and follow steps 2 – 4 above.

If you want a super sleek ponytail run a Hot Tools ceramic flat iron through it before you follow steps 1-4 above.
