how do you ponytail?

Like Tree14Likes

Bosanbo, thanks! I tried this today with zero fuss and it worked great! My hair alway looks boring in a pony because it has no height or volume around the front. This was a two second fix. I could do even better if I was trying to do a "dressy" pony!

bosanbo the trick for ponytail you had mentioned would work perfect for me. I have been having this issue where my long hair drags my front scalp and at time even painful to get a good lose pony.
