Here’s how to create a power pony
1. Section hair top and bottom
2. Work hair back and smooth with oval dressing brush
3. Tie with elastic at crown
4. Brush loose section tightly and secure to pony
5. Spray final fix spray on hands and smooth hair
6. Wrap section of pony around elastics, pin and secure
7. Straighten ponytail with styler
step one: Section hair top and bottom
Section the top of the hair away from the bottom using your ear as a guide. Secure the bottom half away.
step two: Work hair back and smooth with oval dressing brush
Work the hair to the back of your head keeping in line with the cheek bone and smooth with a ghd oval dressing brush.
step three: Tie with elastic at crown
Keeping the tension tight, tie the hair with an elastic at the crown area.
step four: Brush loose section tightly and secure to pony
Take the loose section of hair from underneath the ponytail, brush upwards tightly and secure to the ponytail with an elastic.
step five: Spray final fix spray on hands and smooth hair
To keep the slicked back style locked in, spray ghd final fix hairspray on your hands and smooth over the surface of the hair.
TIP: To create the ‘one length pony’ add hair using wefts between step four and five, then secure using pins.
step six: Wrap section of pony around elastics, pin and secure
Take a section of the ponytail and wrap it around the two elastics to hide them, securing with a pin and a spritz of ghd final fix hairspray.
