It’s more difficult to do spectacular things with a ponytail than it is with other hairstyles. Ponytails, unlike loose hairstyles, may offer you only a bunch of styling options. Adding a ponytail extension will give you more length and volume to work on, but it is still difficult to fulfill your hair goals.
However, the ponytails that we see on red carpets are just the opposite- ‘they are so out of the world.’ Most of the time, celebrities walk the red carpet elegantly with never-seen-before ponytails.

5 Best Ponytails Hacks
If you master the following hacks, then you have the chance of wearing the next-level ponytail hairstyle.
Hack 1: The hair tie trick of all hair tie tricks
Slipping and sliding of the elastic band is a common problem for most plait lovers. The elastic hair ties keep sliding down after some time. Here you don’t need multiple hair ties or a styling product to tackle this issue. You just need two bobby pins. Gather your hair in one hand into the shape of the plaitand secure a bobby pin at the base of the pony (near to the scalp). Then tie your ponytail with an elastic band. After that, secure another bobby pin right below the elastic band. This hack will help your elastic band and ponytail stay in place for a longer duration.
Hack 2: Twisting and Teasing
This hack is the best solution for straight and fine-haired women to add volume, movement, and texture. Don’t worry about a texturizing spray – tie your hair into a pony, take small sections of hair and twist them with one hand way down the pony. Push the twisted pieces up towards the band with the other hand for a backcombing effect.
Hack 3: Backcombing Trick
Wearing a ponytail every day pulls the strands surrounding your face and results in hair fall at the hairline. When the strands are stretched too much, they even start to break. So, to prevent breakage and hair fall, backcomb the face-framing pieces before you secure a ponytail. This hack also creates a gentle lift creating a lively look.
Hack 4: Strip-Tease
Apply this hack to your pony daily to thicken thin and thick locks. Then, if desired, separate your ponytail into two or more halves. Divide your ponytail into many sections if you want more volume. After clipping the top portion of hair aside, grab the second section and tease it upward towards the root of your ponytail using a broad tooth comb.
Hack 5: Sleeping Hack for your Pony
While you’re doing nothing, you can certainly do something with your hair. You can prepare your fantastic ponytail for the next day, especially when sleeping. Implement this hack if you think styling in the morning is time-consuming and agitating. Split a wet pony into two parts. When you are ready to go for bed, dampen your ponytail and divide it into two sections. Twist the sections around each other, wrap them into a bun and then secure with bobby pins. You will have a tousled, wavy texture for your ponytail the next morning.
