1. Wrap the ribbon around the ponytail a few times, tie knots as you go and then tuck the ends under the layers of ribbon if you don’t want to tie a bow in them or if you don’t want the ends of the ribbon visible. This makes it look like a hair elastic.
2. Make sure you use a good quality hair elastic in your own hair that will hold the weight of the ponytail.
3. If you want a more layered look in your ponytail, you could have it feathered by your hairdresser, this is great for a curly look, but we prefer the fuller ends for a straight, red carpet look.
4. Your own hair should be straight if you are wearing the ponytail straight, to avoid short pieces of your own hair showing underneath your ponytail extension.
