step by step guide how to make super long ponytail

Step 01: Start by smoothing out your hair using a wide-toothed comb. Make sure you get rid of all the knots in your hair that may come in the way of your hairstyle.

Step 02: If you want a slightly textured, wavy ponytail, then we suggest you first create some soft waves with the help of a curling iron before you start with the hairdo.

Step 03: Just how you would divide your hair for a half-up half-down, similarly, gather the hair on top of your head and add some from either side next to your ears.

Step 04: Now, secure the hair on top of your head with a scrunchie or a standard rubber band.

Step 05: Next, take the rest of your hair (leave out the top ponytail) and pull it all together into a second ponytail.

Step 06: Secure it with a tiny rubber band or a clear elastic. Let the second ponytail lie as flat against your head as possible.

Step 07: Lastly, fluff the hair of your top ponytail around so as to cover your bottom ponytail.

Step 08: Finish off with hairspray and scrunch your ponytail with your fingers for added texture.
