Long, straight ponytail with multiple elastics

Bubble Ponytail

Here’s a funky twist on a long, straight ponytail hairstyle. David explains how to get the style:

1. Spritz a volumizing spray on damp hair and blow dry straight.

2. Pull your hair into a low ponytail and secure with an elastic. Use a paddle brush to detangle your ends.

3. To create the bubble effect, lightly gather your hair a few inches from the base of the ponytail and wrap an elastic band around the ponytail. Loosen the hair between the elastics with your fingers to create that bubble look.

4. Repeat the process, creating more bubbles with elastic bands until you reach the end.
