FOUR TWISTS ON A
PONYTAIL

You could throw your hair into the same old ponytail all summer long, or – for just 60 seconds of extra effort – switch it up with one of these clever styling hacks…

Tip one: Known as the ‘bubble pony’, pull hair into a ponytail then evenly space two more hair bands further down the tail. Gently ruffle the sides of each section to get the desired double-bubble effect.
Tip two: Check out Popbands’ playful colours and graphic designs – they're a stylish finishing touch and don't leave a dent in hair when removed.
Tip three: Make it a show pony – pull your hair back with a paddle brush (your secret weapon for a bump- and flyaway-free finish without overloading hair with product), run straighteners through the lengths, then mist with glossing spray. Perfect for a glamorous, dressed up occasion.
Tip four: Play with the placement of your ponytail – wear it slung low and straight at the nape of your neck or go to new heights and fix high on the crown (peeking out of this show-stealing sun visor, optional).
