The TikTok Ponytail Hack:
Start with Freshly Washed Hair
It’s always important to prep those strands. Start with freshly washed hair. Next, nail your desired texture. Whether you prefer a pin-straight pony or something with a little bit of wave, this trick works wonders just the same. After you’ve styled your strands, we recommend adding a spritz of your favorite shine spray to get that ultra-glossy aesthetic.
Put Half of Your Hair in a High Pony
That’s right, just two ponytail elastics will do the trick. Start by sectioning your hair into to halves. Put the top half in a high ponytail at the top of your head. Once secured, fan your half pony out as much as possible. We’re going for fullness here.
Place Your Second Pony
Now take the remaining half of your hair and make a second ponytail directly underneath the first. Place this pony just a few inches below the first. And it’s as simple as that! Three easy steps, one ultra-long updo.
