How to Do a Ponytail With Extensions

If your ponytail is in need of a helping hand, hair extensions can provide the perfect solution. Simply watch our video tutorial and follow our guide and we’ll show you how to do a ponytail with extension in a matter of minutes.

Step One: Section the Top of Your Hair

Start by brushing out your hair to remove any tangles and ensure it's smooth and ready to style. Next, section off the top of your hair as you would a half-up half-down, from temples to your crown. Clip this up and out of the way, ready to come back to later.

Step Two: Clip in Your Hair Extensions

Next, create an anchor for your hair extensions to clip into by making a small ponytail underneath the section you’ve pinned back. Then, clip in your hair extensions around the bobble of your small ponytail, adding in as many as you require for volume.

Step Three: Backcomb Your Hair

Once you’ve added all your extensions, unpin your top section and backcomb it to create texture and volume. Spray with hairspray for extra hold before pinning this out of your way again while you focus on the bottom section.

Step Four: Create Your High Ponytail

To create your ponytail, take the bottom half of your hair and gather it up into a ponytail that includes your hair extensions and secure with an elastic band. Next, smooth back your top section and push it forward slightly for height, before adding it to your ponytail and securing in place with another band. Gently manipulate the top section to create more volume and, to create a sleek finished look, wrap a small section of hair around the base to conceal the appearance of the bands.

Final Step: Curl Your Hair

Lastly, to complete the look, use a curling wand to curl your ponytail in small sections. Once you’ve finished, backcomb slightly once more for extra volume and you’ll be left with a long, voluminous ponytail using hair extensions!
