The easiest way to give your ponytail extra dimension! This simple and stylish hairstyle offers a new twist on a classic favorite. Our everyday bubble ponytail is pretty and practical. Here’s how to master it at home.
Step 1: Smooth your locks
Decide the height of your ponytail. Go high for a sporty look, mid for a relaxed and sophisticated style and low for smart and chic. Then, spray TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Hairspray at the roots to get maximum hold, as well as to control flyaways and frizz.
Step 2: Pull your hair into a traditional ponytail
Brush your hair back to create a ponytail between the ears, at the back of the head. Secure it with an elastic and make sure to tie it close to your scalp.
Step 3: Smooth the hairline
Apply hairspray to a toothbrush and use it to brush back any baby hairs from around the face to smooth the hairline.
Step 4: Add volume
Spray TRESemmé Volume Clean Dry Shampoo through the length of the ponytail to refresh your locks and remove any excess oil. This will help you achieve a more voluminous bubble before adding your hair ties.
Step 5: Create your first bubble
To create your first bubble, gently tease the roots of the pony. Then smooth the top layer of hair to hide any teasing.
Step 6: Think about hair tie placement
Clip this section away and create another triangular pony beneath the first, following the same process and making sure your bubbles are the same size. Remember to strategically place elastics, depending on the length of your hair, to keep an equal distance between each bubble.
Step 7: Keep going
Move down the ponytail following the same process. Repeat throughout the length of the hair and pull each section to loosen it and fluff it out, using your fingers to give your bubbles more volume.
Step 8: Secure your style
Finish with a final mist of TRESemmé TRES TWO Extra Hold Hair Spray to secure your style. It dries quickly and will hold your bubbles for longer without any stickiness.
