Ponytails are a classic hairstyle suitable for both casual and formal occasions. While a low ponytail adds length to locks, a voluminous ponytail with bumped bangs is flirty and sexy. Find out how to get the look at home.

Things You'll Need

  • Hair brush
  • Smoothing serum
  • Hair elastic
  • Hair spray
  • Fine tooth comb
  • Blow dryer

Brush through dry hair with a brush to remove any knots and kinks. Use a boar bristle brush for hair that is dry or difficult to manage.

Apply a smoothing serum to hair from mid shaft to the ends to reduce frizz and provide a sleek finish. Light serums and natural oil-based products provide long lasting results by nourishing hair.

Separate the bangs from the rest of the hair.

Comb remaining hair back, and grasp it in place.

Tie the ponytail with a hair elastic. Use an elastic in a similar tone as your hair for a put-together look, or select a colorful piece for a casual look.

Place a Velcro roller under the bangs, and blast with heat using a blow dryer. Allow the bangs to set. Use a jumbo Velcro roller for longer bangs and a small Velcro roller for bangs that land above the brow bone.

Remove the Velcro roller once bangs have cooled completely.

Lift the bangs and back comb at the root for added volume. Use a fine-tooth comb to brush hair down at the root before gently brushing the bangs in to place.

Use a strong hold hairspray to set the look. Freezing hairsprays work best, as bangs can have a tendency to fall flat throughout the day.

Use a fine tooth comb to gently comb through any flyaways.
