Introducing the low bubble ponytail!

In a world of high maintenance updos, tight curls, and messy buns, a go-to style that you can use no matter what time of day or occasion is a ponytail, especially the low bubble ponytail. 

Ponytails are especially helpful during hot and humid days. They’re the easiest hairstyles create when you need to get your hair out of your face. From cute braided ponytails to the trusty low ones, there are many stylish hairstyles that you can try out!  

A low bubble ponytail is an example of a fun style that adds volume. It features a simple ponytail that has multiple sections of about two inches or so that are secured with elastics. It may look difficult to execute, but it’s surprisingly simple. And best of all, you can style a bubble ponytail with accessories like barrettes and scrunchies for that extra pop of color. Here’s how to do it. 

Easy Steps to Create a Low Bubble Ponytail


Start with healthy hair

In order to pull off this low bubble hairstyle, you need to boost the volume of your hair. By shampooing with Dove Oxygen and Nourishment Shampoo and finishing off with Dove Oxygen and Nourishment Conditioner, you nourish your hair and help make it bouncy.

Get rid of tangles

A paddle brush is handy for minimizing damage as it reduced hair pulling. Run the brush gently along your hair to get rid of tangles before styling it.

Tease your hair

Use the tail end comb to tease the top part of your hair for extra volume. The fluffier, the better.

Start creating ponytails

It’s finally time to start on that ponytail! Gather the topmost section of your hair and tie it into a half ponytail using an elastic. 

#HairHack: Wrap a small section of your hair around the elastic to create a seamless look. Secure with a bobby pin afterward, but make sure it is hidden well.

Make bubbles

Pick up a new section of hair from the side and tie it together with the first ponytail. Gently tug your hair to make a bubble. Repeat the process until you’ve created three or more bubbles, depending on the length of your hair. Use the grooming brush to put unruly hair strands back in place. Your low bubble hairstyle is almost done!

Try these ponytail hairstyles aside from the low bubble hairstyle

Low ponytail hairstyles may not be uncommon but they are quick to do and easy to wear. Here are some examples of how you can wear this classic hairstyle.

1. Greek low ponytail

Look like a Greek goddess anytime!

This hairstyle needs a thin headband which you will use a guide for rolling-in your hair. Simply wear the headband the way the ancient Greek goddesses did and slowly insert strands of your hair on both sides of your head into the headband. Do this until you reach your nape area. Then, tie your hair with an elastic and twist them if you want to. You can also create bubbles with this.

2. Sleek low ponytail

Simple yet elegant is what makes this hairstyle eternal

Whatever the occasion or season, a simple and sleek low ponytail always steals the show. Achieve this look by simply gathering your hair into a ponytail and setting it low, just a little above your nape. You can cover the elastic by taking a few strands and wrapping it around the elastic. Comb your hair and smoothen it out for the best finish.

Editor’s tip: This hairstyle is even sexier if your hair is not frizzy. After setting your hair into a ponytail, add a few drops of TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops to make it sleek and shiny!

3. Twisted low ponytail

4. Voluminous low ponytail
