How to Create the Perfect Ponytail | Tips and Tricks


[MUSIC CHARITY VANCE, “Icing.”] -Hey, everyone. I’m Mindy from Cute
Girls Hairstyles, and today I’m here with Bailey. -Hi. -We are going to show you today
how to do the perfect ponytail. Now, lots of you guys ask us
how to get the most amazing ponytail, and if
there’s any tricks. And today we’re going to
show you what those are. Now the first thing I like to
do create the perfect ponytail is make sure that you get
some volume up in the top, because you don’t just a slicked
back, flat, boring ponytail. So I’m going to go ahead,
and just using a comb, I’m going to tease her hair
just a little bit right here in front. And you can even use bobby pins
to create, like a pompadour look, if you don’t want
to just only tease, and that’s fine, too. As long as you get a little
bit of volume in your hair, you’re going to be a
lot happier with the way your ponytail looks. So we’re just going to do
one more little section here. OK. And then I’m going
to flip it back over, and I’m going to take
my smoothing brush, and just smooth the top of it. And now we’re ready to pull
our hair back into a ponytail. Now here’s trick number one. If you go back here
behind her ears, and go up on either side of her
ear, about halfway up her head, and then come together,
your fingers in the middle, you’ll kind of have this
like upside down U shape. That sort of what we want. We don’t want it to come
up too far onto her ears, or you’re going to be able
to see our part lines. So try to stick right
behind the ears. I’m going to get this out
of the way for a minute. Now I’m going to gather
up this back section like you would just
for a regular ponytail. And I’m going to take a
really tiny hair elastic, and secure it in there. Now this is going to
give the optical illusion that your ponytail is
longer than your hair really is, because this is
going to hang down lower than the
rest of your hair. You’ll see in just a minute. So now I’m going to go back up
here and create our real– so to speak– ponytail on
top of that second one. And you will see– brush. Gather up those sides. Smooth it in a little. Now I’m going to use some
of my Hairplay texturizer to just make sure I get some
of those wispies under control a little bit– give it a little
bit better, smoother look. And when you get that
where you want it, go ahead and secure it. Now some of you may
be thinking oh, you’re going to see both of those
elastics, which you can. That can happen, but
not if you do it right. So I’m going to go back
up here and loosen up the front fist, so I make
sure I get the volume I want, and the nice puff. And when I have that
secure, than what you do is you simply go back in, and
tease the hair a little bit on the sides right
here, so that it falls over the edges of
that bottom ponytail, and you can’t see the elastic
anymore– that second one. But look at how
much length we got. If this was the
original ponytail, we probably got an extra five to
six inches just by doing that, and it looks like her
hair’s way longer and softer than it looked before. Now, I’m going to
go in– I’m going to find a little
piece of hair, and I’m going to just hair wrap the
top ponytail so it’s prettier. Oops. Sorry, babe. So I’m going to just
wrap this around. This is what I always
do on my ponies, so they’re really pretty. You don’t have to see
those ugly last elastics. Take a bobby pin, secure it. Now here is my
second trick, and you are going to die over this one. So we’re going to take
this little brown butterfly clip that matches her hair. So if you’re blond, to
find out lighter ones. And we’re just going to
pick up a little bit of hair on the top of the ponytail, and
we’re going to take the clip, and we’re going to stick
it right in to that crease. And then we’re going to let
their hair fall back down. And what this does is it just
adds a little bit more volume and uplift on the
back of the ponytail, and just gives it a
little bit more shape. And I love the way that looks. It makes all the
difference, I swear. OK, here’s the final spin. Do-do-do-da-do-do. Look at the length
we got on that. So pretty. Do-do-do. And we’re finished. I love it. Yes. It looks so great. Hope you guys
enjoy experimenting with the perfect ponytail. I know Bailey’s loving it. -Oh, yes. -Now for those of you watching
my Mom’s View episodes, I have a new one up. You can find it here. It’s on siblings
sharing bedrooms. -I share a bedroom. -Yeah. So make sure and
check that out, and be sure to comment, like,
and favorite this video. And we’ll see you guys later. -Bye. -Part of having a big family
means that some of the kids have to share bedrooms. In our home, the twins have
always shared a bedroom, but with the move
to the new house, we had to double up
another set of girls, and that was definitely
an adjustment. [MUSIC CHARITY VANCE, “Icing.”] -Who’s the bravest? -Come on, buddy. All right. You ready? -Yes. -OK, I’ve got to make
sure I grab you right. -What did you think? -That was fun. -All right, Mom. -Do you want to do it again? -Mom’s turn. -Yes.
