What we love about this trend is how easy it is to put your own spin on it. An XXL ponytail is easy to create, giving you the creative freedom to make it your own. If you have a look on TikTok and Instagram, you can see how celebrities and influencers alike have been experimenting with the trend.
It might take some trial and error for you to find exactly what you’re looking for, but it’s worth experimenting with before the holiday season. We’re sharing our top tips and tricks on how you can take your XXL ponytail to the next level and add a touch of your personality to the trend.
Sometimes, the best looks are the most simplistic. If you’re in a rush or a fan of minimalism, you can keep your XXL ponytail laidback and elevated with a sleek look. Our favourite way of adding an effortless chic twist to our ponytail is by knotting some of our hair around the hair tie. This trick adds an instantly bohemian feel to your look.
If you want to make it even sleeker, run your straighteners through your hair and add a little hair oil to get rid of any flyways and frizz. You can keep your XXL ponytail high or wear it a little lower for a more laidback off-the-clock look.
Ariana Grande and the Kardashian sisters are the ultimate style muses for this trend. Another styling tip that we’ve taken from these celebrities is their love for a middle-parting. With so much attention on your ponytail, it’s easy to forget about your roots. Adding a middle parting can give you a sleek and super-model worthy look.
It helps to add a little hair oil to your roots to help smooth your hair and create an even, obvious parting at the crown of your hair. You’ll want to do this middle parting before putting your ponytail together to prevent any bumps.
We love to wear this style of XXL ponytail at the bottom to our head for a feminine look that works for any occasion, whether you’re grabbing coffee or going on vacation.
Are braids your signature? Don’t worry, you don’t need to say goodbye to them just yet. What we love about the XXL ponytail trend is how inclusive it is as a style. If you’re someone who usually wears their hair in braids, you can use the XXL ponytail to give them a new look.
The easiest way to re-create this look is to style your hair as normal in braids, paying extra attention to make sure that there’s no bumps or unevenness around your scalp.
Once your braids are done, flip your head upside down and gather your braids at the part of your head where you want to secure your ponytail. Braids work perfectly for a high-top XXL look, as the braids add extra texture to your hair, taking the look to the next level.
While waist-length hair isn’t an essential for this trend, it gives it a whole new look. If you’ve always wanted to style yourself like a goddess or a movie star, endless hair is a staple. Don’t worry. There’s no need to wait for years for your hair to grow. None of us are that patient.
Invest in the longest hair extensions that you’re comfortable wearing, keeping in mind that you’ll be installing them to a ponytail. If you have real human hair in your wig, it’s worth straightening or styling your wig beforehand to help it seamlessly blend with your natural hair.
Sleek hair isn’t for everyone. If you’ve fallen head over heels for the cottagecore aesthetic or prefer a more traditional feminine look, you can jump on the XXL ponytail trend as well. A wavy ponytail can work for any occasion, whether you’re heading to a wedding or going out with friends. It’s the perfect way to show off thick, healthy hair and have fun with your ponytail.
The easiest way to do this trick is to add waves to your hair before putting your ponytail together. Avoid curling the top of your hair, as you want to keep it sleek and smooth. Work on adding curls and waves to the hair from the base of your ear down. You can add volumizing products to give the illusion of thicker hair and to add another dimension to your look.
We love to finish this trick off with an oversized hair scrunchie or one with chain detaining to give the look an elevated feel. This hairstyle is another one that’s perfect for using your hair extensions for to give you extra volume to work with.
Molly Mae is one of our biggest style inspirations – and she’s also a fan of the XXL ponytail look. You can recreate Molly’s mermaid-inspired ponytail by adding short and loose curls to your hair to create a crimpled look. We love that Molly has also added a middle parting to her look, with the smoothness of your roots contrasting against the waves of her ponytail. Don’t forget to add a glossy finish to your hair with a natural hair oil.

Frizz hair can be a nightmare during the summer. The humidity, combined with your naturally frizzy hair, can be a girl’s worst nightmare when the temperatures start to rise. Frizz is when your hair doesn’t align straight and is caused by moisture that swells-up your hair. Your hair naturally becomes frizzier as the humidity around you goes above the level of moisture and water in your hair. Whether you’re indoor or outdoors, your hair naturally absorbs moisture from the air. After your hair has consumed all this moisture, it starts to swell and become frizz.
The redhead trend has been slowly gaining popularity in recent years. It started with Sophie Turner’s character, Sansa Stark, on Game of Thrones.
