For this look, you will need about 6 elastics. Begin with your basic pony, however, starting at the lower neck and to the side.  This one can be done freestyle as well to give that tousled look.  Once your ponytail is done simply add elastics in, leaving about 5-10cm between each one.You can then pull on each section from each side gently, to achieve the lantern effect seen in the above image. For a variation, you could also do this style with a high or low centered ponytail.

Love Heart plait

Feeling a bit more adventurous?  This hairstyle is a breeze with the ponytail clip-in!  As we have before, we will begin by inserting the clip on ponytail as you learnt in step 5.

Once all the hair is tied up in your ponytail you can begin your plait. Divide your hair into three sections and wind them beginning from left to right, not too tight. To create the love heart effect, swing the plait to the side so that you can see it. Start slightly pulling out the sections of the plait, top down.   

So there you have it, all the information you never knew you needed on our clip on ponytail extensions.  Remember, the great thing about our clip-in ponytails is that you can chop and change your look as often as possible – the options are endless!
