How to best style a ponytail wig
Whatever the type of hair you have, ponytails are an ideal way to wear it! No matter how old you are, wearing your hair in a ponytail is a classic look that will never go out of style. They are the epitome of elegant simplicity.
Moving your hair back and out of your face can give you a whole different appearance and you can try many different ways to style your ponytail. Be creative and spruce up your look with a beret, scarf or beaded clip.
We have put together a few guidelines on how to style a ponytail wig, whether you want a to put your wig in a ponytail or add a ponytail piece.
Put your wig in a ponytail
It is best to use human hair wigs rather than synthetic wigs as the wig needs to endure frequent styling. Rather use a thinner wig as too much hair will have an unnatural and bulky feel. Your wig cap must be exceedingly comfortable to wear. A ill-fitting cap will either be heavy or tight, both of which will make your ponytail appear a bit contrived.
Washing your wig is essential to get rid of the seat build-up, but it is extremely important that you only style your wig once it is completely dry.
Brush the hair to detangle it and then put it all back in place. Tilt your head, gather all of your hair on one side of your head, and gently pull it towards the location on your wig where you want your ponytail to be. Brush your hair gently again with a wig brush or comb. If you have a curly wig, brush it out with your fingers or a pic comb. Pull the hair up until you're satisfied with the location of the ponytail, then secure it with a rubber or cloth band.
To preserve the style longer, spritz the hair with wig spray. Avoid human hair styling products at all costs. They are not made for wigs and the chemicals can damage the hair and material. You can achieve an undone effect by arranging your natural hair around the wig.
Try a ponytail hairpiece
Ponytail hair pieces can be found in a wide range of colours and styles, allowing you to achieve a wide range of hairstyles. The attachments for each ponytail are unique. Some have a clip or grip at the base of the hairpiece, while others have clips on the side. Designed for convenience of usage, they'll stay put all day thanks to the smart attachment.
Ponytail hair extensions come in two basic varieties
A clip-in ponytail, as the name suggests, is held in place by a claw clip. To hide your natural ponytail, some clip-ins have drawstrings. Wrap-around ponytails are made with an inner comb, some velcro, and an extra piece of hair to cover the velcro.
It is a good idea to tie your natural hair up in a ponytail and then attach the hair piece over it. We have put together a few styles for you.
The lower ponytail
A curly or straight hairpiece can be used to get the desired effect. Pull out a few strands of hair at the front and style them in a way that mimics the hairpiece.The most natural-looking hairstyle for those of you with shorter hair is to leave the hair loose at the front and tie it in a curly or wavy ponytail at the back. Just make sure your ponytail or bun at the beginning is angled appropriately and is positioned low enough before you put the hairpiece to your hairstyle.
The high ponytail
This popular hairdo is a lot less difficult to obtain than you might expect. Making sure the hair at the front is neat and that the bun or ponytail into which you place your own hair is already at the right height is key. We recommend that you use a tail comb to produce a smoother, sleeker look before attaching your hair piece to your head. The hairpiece can be put effortlessly over the top of your pony or bun and then wrapped with a strip of velcro to complete the look.
The messy ponytail
With a messy ponytail, you don't have to worry about the exact placement of your ponytail. After you've attached the hair piece to your hair, use your hands to lightly tease out the front of your hair to create a relaxed look.
Braided ponytails are ideal for special occasions. If your hair is long enough braid it from the front to the back of the head until it meets the ponytail hair piece for a classic look. You can also braid the ponytail piece on its own; just make sure the braid does not weigh the ponytail piece down.
