If I had a nickel for every time someone asked me how Ariana Grande does it and the answer is in her song 7 Ring!
“You like my hair? Gee thanks, just bought it.”
So now you know you have come to the right place and by the end of this article I’ll have you as confident as Grande herself with a high fashion, no bullshit hair that doesn’t miss anyone’s eye - look.
What’s the best part about ponytails? They keep your hair off your face and sometimes a girl needs just that, especially when you are up for any adventure or at work and don’t want to be bothered by flying strands of hair. But who says you can’t oh so fabulous even when you’re hard at work.
We all know Ariana Grande’s signature ponytail and honestly, it has an undeniable allure to it. But way before Grande made the ponytail a Hollywood sensation, ponytails were around and rocking popular culture. Ponytails worn by women can be traced back to 2000-1500 BCE and they are now remembered through frescoes that were painted around that time in Crete.
Right out of the 70s, this look is going to be a killer in 2022 and you can see the way so many of our favorite fashion icons have been donning this updo including Hailey Baldwin, Emily Ratajowski, Gigi and Bella Hadid and so many more!
No matter where your inspiration comes from, we all deserve to have that dreamy ponytail look, and its so exciting to know that it is now possible to achieve this in a matter of MINUTES, yes girls you heard me right, it is only going to take you a minute to fix it up - which makes it a perfect brunch date hairstyle.
It is important to keep in mind that you will have to hone your skills when it comes to this hairstyle and the more you practice it, the better you will get at it.
Don’t let this intimidate you, we have planned it all out so you can achieve this look in the easiest way possible! Let’s figure this out together:
Our aim has to be at securing two aspects, one is a smooth front and crown section - that looks slick and clean (or should be looking), the second is going to be the hair in the tail section of your ponytail.
How do we ensure that slick front and crown? We recommend you straighten your hair before you go for this all glam look, this will make sure your hair won’t go all haywire when you’re pulling the ponytail together. Once you have secured the hair finely, use a hairband to make sure that the first half of the battle is one.
Now you’ll begin to notice that there isn’t much volume left in the tail, nothing like you see on the television, this is because the magic is yet to happen. Use Gemeria Ponytail Extensions, all you have to do is first, brush the hair in your extension to make sure there aren’t any tangles. Once you have done that use the strip on your extension - wrap it around the ponytail you have just made and secure it with the band. Take a few strands, wrap them around the hairband area so it's hidden, and secure that with a bobby pin.
Now you should have a fairly clean and elegant ponytail look that will definitely give you that Ariana Grande vibe. Make sure you use hair gel or hair wax to secure the front and style the baby hair.
You can definitely play with your ponytail hairdo with slim braids and add tracks to make it look a little more jazzy.
