How To: Create a Voluminous Ponytail

Alright ladies, are you ready for this? According to our experts, the key to creating the perfect voluminous ponytail is to actually create 2 ponytails! I know right??!! Our ‘Girl in Focus’ has extremely long, thick hair so if this little trick works for her, it will pretty much work for anyone. See how Brit achieves the perfect pony in 6 simple steps.

Dannyco Wood Teasing Brush

Made from boar bristles and 100% maple wood, this teasing brush leaves the hair smooth and shiny. Varied bristle length makes it easier to penetrate even the thickest hair. Excellent for creating up-dos and volume at the roots. BONUS: the tapered tail-end of the brush is great for sectioning hair.
