Bobble Ponytail

THE LOOK

With such a distinctive shape, the sectioned bobble ponytail is fun but sleek and is so easy to do. Puff out each section of the ponytail to give it a unique look. This style combines the functionality of keeping your hair well and truly under control with a cute look that’s perfect for a day out with friends.

HAIR EXTENSIONS NEEDED?

ACCESSORIES

For a more streamlined look, use hair elastics that match your hair color. Alternatively, why not try metallic hair elastics or hair cuffs as a feature, or use colored hair ties for a fun finish.

TRY THIS

This hairstyle is really effective in straight hair, though it can also be worn in wavy or curly hair. Why not combine the bobble ponytail with the stacked ponytail? Section your hair down the back of your head and continue into a low bobble ponytail at the nape of your neck. You can also wear this hairstyle to the side or twist it into a top knot bun for added texture.

HOW TO GET IT BOBBLE PONYTAIL

WHAT YOU NEED

  • Brush
  • 4–6 hair elastics (depending on the length of your hair)

1). Brush your hair to remove any knots. Gather all your hair into a ponytail at the back of your head and secure with an elastic. You can place the ponytail higher on the crown of your head if you’re after a bouncier look.

2). Next, take a hair elastic and place it around your ponytail about 2 inches from the base of your ponytail.

3). Continue placing hair elastics in equal measures down the length of your ponytail.

4). Keep going!

5). When you’re done, gently pull at each section of hair to stretch it out and emphasize the shape.

TOP TIP : Gently pulling at each section of hair not only emphasizes the distinctive shape of this ponytail, but also makes your hair look thicker.
