What is a Bubble Ponytail?

The bubble ponytail is a chic twist on the protective ponytail styles.

It involves pulling your hair up into a regular ponytail and then using elastic bands to tie down the length of your hair in small round sections called bubbles.

Although it looks complicated, it is very easy to create and style.

Read on for a step-by-step tutorial for creating a trendy bubble ponytail using hair extensions.

Getting Started

You can start with any type of hair: straight, curled, wavy, crimped, it doesn’t matter.

Start by teasing your hair at the top roots with a teasing comb to give your hair some more volume. Tease your natural hair until you get the desired volume and texture.

The Traditional Pony Way

Step 1

Pick yourself some good ponytail extension like this Jet Black Ponytail with adjustable cuff.

Pull your natural hair up in a traditional ponytail and secure it with a clear elastic.

The height of the ponytail is totally up to you. Tease and tug some of the hair at the crown to give you more volume.

If you prefer a more slicked-back look, put on a hair gel or our Pineapple Hair Wax and brush it back to smooth out any flyaways and baby hair.

Spray any hairspray of your choice at the roots to hold the style.

Step 2

Take your long ponytail hair extensions and secure them to your natural ponytail.

To attach the human hair ponytail extensions to your natural hair ponytail, secure the ponytail extension around your natural hair using its clip, drawstring, or wrap-around strap, making sure it is sung and secure.

Step 3

Gently tease your hair extensions a bit to give them more volume and bounce.

Then, smooth them out to hide any teasing.

Step 4

Create your first bubble.

Grab your ponytail extensions and natural hair and gently tease the roots. Smooth them over and think about the placement of the bubble.

Tie the bubble clip or elastics in whatever placement you want below your secured ponytail extensions by creating a triangular pony beneath it.

Step 5

Follow the same step as the previous one and repeat with as many bubbles as you want or can place in your hair.

Just make sure that all the bubbles are the same size.

Place the bubble ties strategically so they have an equal distance between each bubble.

Step 6

Keep doing this and move down the ponytail extensions.

Repeat these steps down the length of your ponytail and gently tease and fluff the hair for more volume in your bubbles.

Step 7

Finally, secure your style with a little Glow Shine Hair Spray, and you’re ready to go!

The Half-Up Half-Down Way

Another way to make a bubble ponytail with extensions is through the half-up, half-down method.

This method involves pulling your hair halfway up in a ponytail and leaving the bottom hair open.

Step 1

Get a stylish ponytail extension like the Yaki Straight Ponytail.

Position your thumbs on either side of your head near your ears and lift the top part of the hair to separate it from the bottom part.

Step 2

Pull the top section back into a ponytail and secure it with an elastic band at the preferred height of your choice.

Step 3

Add in your ponytail extension and secure it to your natural ponytail using the clip, drawstring, or wrap-around strap.

Make sure it’s snug and secure.

Step 4

Take a strand of your hair and wrap it around the top of the ponytail extensions.

Keep repeating this step until all the hair at the bottom is used up and is added to the ponytail extensions.

Use bobby pins to secure.

Step 5

Tease the hair and ponytail extension a bit to give it more volume if you prefer and smooth it out again.

Step 6

Create the first bubble 2 inches below the first base.

Keep repeating this step until you have a certain number of perfectly spaced-out and shaped bubbles, as much as the length of the ponytail extensions allows.

Step 7

Keep working down the entire length of your remaining hair and ponytail extensions till you reach the ends.

Step 8

This step is up to you.

If you prefer a slicked-back look with tight buns, keep it like that, but if you prefer a looser and more voluminous look, tug and loosen each of the individual bubbles to get more volume.

If you prefer a more tousled and messier look, pull a few strands of hair out at the front to frame your face and make the bubbles poufy and tousled. Do use a good hairspray to keep everything in place and have fun with your hair.

Remember, no bubble ponytail will look the same. Each style will be unique and chic in its way.
