At Hot Hair, we have a gorgeous range of easy-to-wear ponytails in a huge range of styles and colours. All you have to do is pop your own hair into a ponytail or bun and clip them into the top- it’s as easy as that! But if you think a ponytail is just a ponytail, think again! At Hot Hair, we can’t live without our clip-in ponies we’ve learnt a few tips and tricks on how to mix it up and do different things with them. We thought we’d share our insider tips with you, so here’s how to get five looks out of any one of our Hot Hair ponytails…enjoy!
1. The statement chignon.
If you’ve never tried wrapping one of our ponytails into a chignon- then you’ll be wowed once you have! Big, statement buns are all the rage for 2012- as seen on a huge number of celebrities across the globe and the good news is that they’re super easy to do with one of our clip in ponies. Simply tie your hair up, clip the hairpiece into your own and divide into two equal sections. Take the section on the right and wrap all the way around to the left. Do the same with the remaining section but wrap in the opposite direction. You should now have a big, voluminous bun. Tuck the ends into the side of the bun, pin with some Kirby grips, spritz with a fine mist of hairspray to settle any stray hairs et viola! A red-carpet style chignon.
2. The super-sleek high ponytail.
A high ponytail is the ultimate fast-track route to glamorous hair. It’s simple, fuss-free and always looks polished. To create the look, begin by tying your hair up into a high ponytail. Create a tight, sleek look by brushing your hair completely flat and by gelling it down or create a softer look and pull out some tendrils at the side of your face- depending on which you prefer. Clip the hairpiece into the top of your own ponytail and rake through with the fingers to blend in with your own hair. For extra wow-factor, take a slice from the side of the ponytail and wrap it around the top
3. The side-swept pony.
A casual, side-swept pony is the way to go this summer. It’s sweet, simple and perfect for a lazy day in the park, barbeques or for evening events. First, tease some sections at the top of the head to create maximum volume and tie your hair into a low ponytail, positioning it to one side. Clip your ponytail in and finish with a mist of hairspray. You can also take a slice of hair from the side, braid it and twirl it around the top for extra detailing
4. The side plait.
Pretty plaits have been massive this year, on the catwalks and on red-carpet events around the world. They’re fantastic for hot summer days when you want to keep your hair out of the way but also great if you want to show off a little dress. If you have short or fine hair but dream of having a long, thick, side plait resting on your shoulder, then here’s how to get it! Tie your hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck and clip the hairpiece in. Plait the piece as you would your own hair, incorporating your own hair into it as you go. Once you’ve tied it at the bottom, gently stretch the plait at the sides and pull out some light strands for a soft, boho look.
5. The Half-up, half-down ‘do.
Can’t decide whether you want to wear your hair up or down? Do them both! This is a hairstyle which seems to be one of Kate Middleton’s favourites and with its classy, voluminous look, who could blame her? Begin by tying half of your hair up into a ponytail and clip your ponytail hairpiece into the top. Try lightly teasing some sections at the top of the ponytail for extra volume, or adding a small hair accessory
