Wraparound ponytail extensions are a great way to add a bit of personality to your look, and they're also a great way to keep your hair out of your face.

Ponytail wraps are a quick and easy way to achieve a polished look without having to spend hours on your hair. Plus, they're super affordable, which is always a bonus. 

Here's everything you need to know about wraparound ponytail extensions and some inspo for styling them!

What are pony tail wraps?

What Are Wraparound Ponytail Extensions?

Wraparound ponytail extensions are exactly what they sound like – hair extensions that you wrap around your ponytail.

They come in a variety of colours, textures and lengths, so you can find the perfect option to suit your style.

Most wraps will come with two pieces – the actual hair extension itself, and a thinner section (pony tail wraps) that's used to wrap around your ponytail and secure the extension in place.

The great thing about these kinds of extensions is that they're really easy to put in and take out, so you can change up your look as often as you like.

How Do I Put In A Ponytail Hair Extension?

Putting in pony tail wraps is really easy – even if you've never used hair extensions before. The first thing you need to do is gather your hair into a ponytail and secure it with a hair tie.

Most ponytail extensions use clips to attach to your hair, so you'll need to side the clips in place over the top of your natural hair ponytail.

Once the clips are in place, simply wrap the smaller ponytail piece around the elastic band, tucking the ends under or clipping them in place.

And that's it! You've now successfully put in your ponytail extension!

Once you've got your ponytail hair extension secured in place, you can start styling it to suit your look.

Many ponytail extensions come pre-styled, but that's not to say that you can't change it up to suit your style or to fit any occasion, whether they're special occasions or everyday looks.

You could experiment by adding in accessories. like statement clips or headbands.

The Sleek And Polished Ponytail

If you're going for a sleek and polished look, simply brush through your hair to smooth it down and remove any knots or tangles. You can leave your hair natural or use a serum or oil to add extra shine.

Choose a ponytail hair extension that is long and straight, and wrap it around your natural hair ponytail. You can use a bobby pin to secure any stray pieces of hair, or use a bit of hairspray to keep everything in place.

The Messy And Effortless Ponytail

If you're going for a more effortless and messy look, start by spraying your hair with a texturizing spray or sea salt spray. This will help to add volume and texture to your hair.

Next, gather your hair into a high ponytail and secure it with an elastic band. Wrap your chosen ponytail extension around the base of your ponytail, and use your fingers to tousle and mess up the hair.

Finish off the look by spraying with a bit of hairspray, and you're good to go!

Washing Your Ponytail Hair Extensions

Ponytail hair extensions are a great way to change up your look, but it's important to take care of them so that they last.

The good news is that they are relatively low-maintenance, and you can wash them just like you would your normal hair. With any clip-in hair extensions, the easiest way to wash them is to first remove them from your hair.

Start by wetting your extensions in the sink, then apply a small amount of shampoo to them and work it in gently. Rinse the shampoo out thoroughly, then apply a conditioner and leave it in for a few minutes before rinsing it out.

Once your extensions are clean, squeeze out any excess water and lay them out on a towel to dry. You can also use a blow dryer on a low heat setting to speed up the drying process.
