Choosing the Right Human Hair Wig For Ponytail Styling
When selecting a human hair wig for ponytail styling, opt for a wig with hair density around 150% that won't look too thin or scalpy pulled back. Choose a straight texture that can be easily smoothed into a pony. Look for a wig with a pre-plucked hairline to blend seamlessly.
Prepping and Securing Your Wig For a Sleek Ponytail
Prep your wig for ponytail styling by washing, conditioning, and detangling the hair. Allow it to fully air dry before styling. Use wig clips to securely attach the wig to your head. Pull the hair back tightly and brush it thoroughly before gathering it into a ponytail. Use bobby pins to secure any loose strands or tracks.
Creating Volume and Height For Your Ponytail
For a voluminous, ariana-style ponytail, lightly backcomb and tease the hair at the crown before smoothing it into a pony. Or, attach ponytail clip-in extensions that match your wig color. Use the twist method - divide hair into sections, twist back tightly then loop into a ponytail.
Styling Tips For a Side Ponytail With Your Human Hair Wig
For a chic side pony, part your wig to one side first. Gather and smooth the hair over one shoulder before securing in a ponytail with an elastic. Use pomade to slick down flyaways on the sides and edges. Add a bump for volume, teasing the hair at the crown.
How to Get a Smooth, Tight Ponytail With Your Wig
Use a boar bristle brush to smooth out the wig hair before tightly gathering it into a ponytail positioned at the back crown of your head. Firmly pull the ponytail through the elastic 2-3 times for a tight hold. Add gel to slick down the sides. Set the style with hairspray.
Adding Accessories Like Scrunchies to Jazz Up Your Wig Ponytail
Personalize your ponytail by wrapping a printed scrunchie around the base or adding a fun 90s-style butterfly clip. Or, wrap the ponytail base with a ribbon. For glam, add soft curls to the ponytail hair. Accessorize with gold hair jewels.
Maintaining and Caring For Your Human Hair Wig Ponytail
Use a wig conditioning spray before and after wearing your wig in a ponytail to prevent dryness and maintain smoothness. Gently brush the ponytail hair between wears and reset any loose style pieces with bobby pins. Store the wig on a mannequin head or wig stand.
Achieving an Ariana Grande-Style High Ponytail With Your Wig
Ariana is the queen of the sky-high ponytail! To get her look, brush the hair tightly into a sleek, super high ponytail positioned near the top of your head. Use pomade on the sides to eliminate frizz and flyaways. Set the style with strong hold hairspray.
Troubleshooting Common Ponytail Problems With Human Hair Wigs
If you see tracks showing, use bobby pins to secure them flat against your head before styling the ponytail. For a lumpy pony, smooth the hair with pomade and reset with a tight tie. If the ponytail is too loose, re-gather the hair and securely wrap the elastic multiple times.
The Best Human Hair Wigs For Versatile Ponytail Styling
Look for human hair wigs around 18-22 inches long with 150% density and a straight or body wave texture for easy styling into versatile ponytails. Quality human hair mimics the movement of real hair and blends for a flawless ponytail.
