Super Easy Ponytail Hairstyles

The Long and Sleek Ponytail

A sleek ponytail is really on-trend right now. It's all over our TikTok FYP and Instagram feed, and we love it!

A slicked-back high ponytail can turn absolutely any outfit into a great look.

Whether you're in the office, working from home, going out with the girls...whatever it is, this ponytail hairstyle will make you look like an absolute boss.

Our 26" Synthetic Wrap Around Straight Ponytail can turn your natural hair into an oh-so sleek look, even for the girls who have short hair! The dreams of long hair can be achieved in seconds – no commitment needed!

You'll want to throw your natural hair up into a high ponytail, using our Deluxe Hairbrush and some gel or spray to slick down any flyaways or baby hairs. Then, take our 26" Synthetic Pony, and clip it into place over your own hair, using the clips attached to the extensions.

Use the wrap-around piece to conceal the hairband, using a hairpin or clip to clip it down – and you're done!

The Classic Flick Ponytail

As far as volume goes, you can't go wrong with a classic ponytail with a flick at the ends. The bounce and movement it adds to your hair is just so classy!

This ponytail hairstyle is our go-to for shopping trips out with friends and nights out with the girls.

Our Lily 22" Full Bodied Clip-in Ponytail is the perfect piece to this voluminous ponytail – it’s exactly what you need to add thickness and bounce.

As with all of our other clip ponytail hair extensions, just pop it into place over your natural ponytail, use the wrap-around piece to wrap around your hairband, and you're all done.

A slicked-back look works well with this pony, but sometimes we also pull out a few face-framing pieces to soften up the look.

The Messy Ponytail

The Messy Ponytail

We'd be lying if we said this isn't one of our favourite ponytail hairstyles. A messy ponytail is a brilliant way to ass some hair texture and volume to your look.

The effortless look is really popular right now. It creates a look like you've just rolled out of bed, but still looking cute – and let's face it, we all love that!

Our Bella 18" Clip-in Curly Ponytail gives you exactly what you want to hear - all the curl, all the volume and all the style. The length of this pony is perfect for a messy, textured look.

For this look, we like to leave two pieces of front hair out, and pull the ponytail piece high on the crown of our head. Just clip in the extensions, and you're good!

You can then take a curling wand and add some soft curls to the front pieces you left out to give it a more natural look.

The Wavy Ponytail

For the days or nights when you want something a bit more glam and put-together, then the wavy ponytail is the way to go.

This look can be achieved with our 24" Synthetic Hollywood Clip-in Wave Ponytail as part of our collaboration with Love Island babe Eve Gale. If anyone knows how to rock a wavy hairstyle, it's our girl Eve!

Because this pony is super super long, we'd recommend styling in a high ponytail – but it could still look great in a low ponytail, too.

Clip the ponytail extension over your natural hair and use the wrap-around piece to hide your hair band, using a pin to hold it into place.

For this look, we like to take some hair gel and an edge brush, and sweep our baby hairs back.

That's all there is to it!

The Blow-Dry Ponytail

The Blow-Dry Ponytail

Last, but most definitely not least, on our list of favourite ponytail hairstyles is the gorgeous blow-dry ponytail.

This one is our go-to for fancy dinners or special events. It looks so glamorous, chic and classy – and it takes no time at all!

Our Mia Sully 26" Wrap Around Blow Dry Ponytail – in collaboration with no other than Mia Sully herself – is the best way to get this look.

This piece is perfectly pre-styled with bouncy blow-dry curls; all you need to do is clip it in and go! Use the wrap-around piece to hide your hair tie, using a few bobby pins to hold it in place.

A sleek style works best with this long ponytail, so use your gel or spray to keep any flyways in check.
