What you need to make a High Ponytail with Bangs

  • Wide tooth Comb.
  • Water in a bottle spray.
  • Eco-style Gel.
  • Toothbrush/cutting comb.

  • De-tangle your hair with your fingers.

  • Plait your front base and leave out a little hair on the base to act as coverage to make the extensions invisible.
  • Apply eco-styler gel to the sides of the body and the back of your hair.
  • Use the hairbrush to brush your hair into a ponytail.
  • Use the rubber bands or any hairband to tie your hair tightly.
  • Plait the ends of the tightly packed hair. 
  • Attach your extensions. For clipins, you can easily clip or tie your extensions to the ends. However, for extensions without clip-ins, you would be needing a needle and thread to sew it tightly. Another alternative would be hair glue. You can use the glue to place your extensions on your hair.
  • Take your shorter extension and apply it to your plaited base. Clip-ins are easy to attach and you may not need your tail comb to part any base. However, if your extension is without clip-ins, the base is necessary for easy attachment. Your hair will also turn out neater. 
  • Comb out the little hair left at the base in case you prefer an invisible look.
  • Trim the ends of your base to give a sharper look.
