Hi, everyone. I'm Amanda Shackleton, and today I'm going to show you how to do a ponytail if your hair is curly and long and you're going to be playing a sport. So what I've done is I've decided to do kind of a cute version that will keep your hair really secure so when you are running around and playing it won't come out but you'll also look kind of stylish and you'll only need a few things. You'll need a brush, a flat brush like this, an elastic band and just a little bit of spray gel to put on the hair. What I did was take just two very small braids and just kind of very lightly braided them until they came to the center of the hair at the head in the back and then just put a pin in there to secure them. And now what I want to do is decide what level I want to put the ponytail at. I'm not sure if I want to do it say maybe lower like that which might be the most comfortable if you are running around and doing a lot of activity or some people like to have it kind of mid range and you can also do it as a higher ponytail as well. It really just depends on what you feel like doing. I'm going to do this kind of mid range. So I'm going to grab the hair, pull it through the elastic and then go ahead and pull it through one more time. You want to make sure the elastic is nice and tight because what happens is if it's not tight enough when you run around, the ponytail is going to fall out. So we'll go ahead, that's really very nice and tight. I'm going to give it quick spray with some wet gel, a little here. And there you go, you're good to go play your sports. I'm Amanda Shackleton and I've just showed you how to do a long ponytail for people with curly hair playing sports.
