One of the essential hairstyles we’ve been mastering since childhood is the ponytail. As a classic get up and go style, we love that we can create a simple and quick look and still look put together. We also love vacations on this look, styles that can be made into something new and chic to keep up with the times and your ever-evolving style. Enter the trendy bubble pony, a variation on the classic style that’s intermixed with several small and tight ponytails to create a refreshingly modern and head-turning new look. It’s ideal for everything from your professional life to your relaxed weekends. Read on to learn more about to master the bubble pony in no time:
Bubble Pony Tutorial
Step 1: Start with clean hair.
The best way to start with a new style is with clean hair. Try Suave Professionals Deep Moisture Shampoo and Suave Professionals Deep Moisture Conditioner to clean and moisturize your strands. Make sure that your hair is at least 90% dry before you go onto the styling part.
Step 2: Brush your hair.
After your hair is dry, brush through to get rid of any frizz or flyaways that sometimes acclimate along the sides.
Step 3: Pull your hair up.
After it’s brushed, pull your hair into a tight and high ponytail. Smooth out any additional flyaways with your hands or a soft brush. Once you are happy with the sides and smoothness, pull out a small portion from the side of your hair and wrap around the base of your ponytail. Slide a bobby pin in to keep that strand in place.
Step 4: Create your bubble.
Use small clear ponytails to create the bubbled look. Start at the top of your pony just beneath the base of the style.
Step 5: Repeat the bubble.
Make your way down your hair, creating small ponytails as you go. The finished style and number of hair ties you’ll need depend on the length of your hair.
Step 6: Keep it smooth.
Flatten out any additional frizz or flyaways with a smoothing cream. We like Love Beauty And Planet Smooth And Serene Argan Oil & Lavender Leave-In Smoothie Cream.
Step 7: Wear it proud.
Wear your finished bubble ponytail with confidence!
