This post is dedicated to ponytail swag. Pony’s have been my saving grace these past few weeks since I have been studying and I am in a mad rush every morning. I have pretty much perfected a slicked back pony, but I know its really hard to do so I have decided to let you in on my newly perfected talent. I have watched tons of videos on getting the perfect high ponytail swag, since I have a complicated crown system its hard for me to get my hair to slick back perfectly. It definitely takes a lot of practice for girls like me who’s struggle in the hair department, but once you know how it is a quick and easy way to conceal greasy hair (gross but life happens), bad hair days and if you have a frizzy situation you can turn that pony into a high plait and rock it.
Step 1: Brush Out Those Nasty Knots.
If you have the bubbly pony problem that I do make sure you brush out every single knot. Brush your hair before going to sleep at night and before washing it to help your knot problem. My aunties used to tell me for healthy, long hair you have to brush it threw one hundred strokes every night before bed. This is probably an old wives tale but it helps brushing your hair at night. Try out the Tangle Teezer hair brush. Its seriously a dream come true, pain free detangling!
Step 2: Tie it back
To get your pony extra high, one of my readers suggested bending forward when grabbing your hair into a ponytail. Do this but as you tie your pony use a small brush with bristles close together to brush your hair flat. Once you regain your upright position keep brushing the hair flat and adjust your hair tie accordingly. Since you have brushed all the knots out it shouldn’t bubble, if it does you have knots naughty girl, refer back to step one.
Step 3: Tighten & Pin
I divide my pony into two parts and pull them in opposite directions to tighten the pony. There after pinning my baby hairs and fly aways securely.
Step 4: Spray & Perfect
Spray and perfect the pony using hair spray and hair brush. Take a small section out of your pony to wrap around and conceal your hairband. Pin securely
