Go big or go home. It’s a motto some people live by. Whether you subscribe the philosophy or not, there’s one area where we can all agree it’s true – your hair. With ‘80s and 2000s trends making a comeback, we’re all ready to add extra volume to our hair. The XXL ponytail look is all over social media, but it’s one that most of us are familiar with.
This super-high ponytail has been the signature look of popstar Arian Grande since she appeared on the music scene. Updos are leading the way in hair trends for their effortless chicness and low-maintenance. All you have to do is secure in place with a few bobby pins and hairspray, then you’re ready to go.
Searches on Google and Pinterest for updos have soared over the fall as everyone’s been looking for easy-to-create hair looks that go seamlessly from day to night. If you’re thinking of experimenting with an updo, go big or go home.
Just like fashion trends, beauty trends are becoming more casual and laidback. Most of the updos we would usually wear are more elevated – like an elegant braid or a complicated chignon. What we love about an XXL ponytail is that it’s both laidback and glamorous. Thanks Ariana!
While this hair trend is everywhere this season, it’s the perfect one to experiment with before the holiday season. It can take you from a day at work or college to an evening out with friends.
We’re sharing everything you need to know about the XXL ponytail trend, including how to create it at home for a seamless look.
Don’t worry. You don’t need to have Ariana Grande’s hair to take part in this trend. It’s easy to assume that you need Rapunzel-length hair to be able to create such a high ponytail, but the reality is different. Like most things in life, it’s all an illusion.
You can steal Ariana’s best-kept secret and use two stacked ponytails – a higher and mid-length one – to give the illusion of more length to the ends of your hair. As long as your hair goes beyond your shoulders, you can give this trend a try.
Extensions are another option if you have short hair or want an extravagant XXL ponytail for a special occasion. It’s much quicker than having to wait for your natural hair to grow. The easiest way to incorporate hair extensions is to use Ariana’s trick of two ponytails, adding the extensions to the lower ponytail.
You can hide the top of your extensions by taking a small section of your hair and wrapping it around the base of your ponytail for a seamless look.
Whether it’s with extensions or your natural hair, creating an XXL ponytail is easier than you think.
The number one tip for getting an ultra-high and sleek ponytail is to flip your head upside down. Gather the hair at the top of your head, as high as possible, using one hand to hold your ponytail while the other smooths out any bumps. It’s essential that you get your hair as smooth as possible, otherwise you’ll need to start all over again.
Hold your hair tightly for a snatched look before adding your ponytail, tightening it as you go. You can add extra height to your ponytail by adding a second hair band half an inch above the first one to help add to the height illusion.
Sometimes you forget that you’re already wearing your best accessory. With summer just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to perfect the art of dressing up your hair. We have a few accessories that you should add to your closet to bring a little extra jazz to your hair: Headbands, Silk Scarf, Bow Clip, Scrunchies, Jewel Clips.
Do you subscribe to the philosophy of “change the hair, change the woman”? If you do, then you might be considering a fresh haircut after the year that was 2020. Changing up your hairstyle can be as much a statement of your personality and development as it is about fashion. In 2020, many of us had to do our hair from home and master the art of the box-dye and even cutting our own fringe. We hope that this year we get to return to the salons for a professional cut. With this in mind, we’re rounding up the 5 biggest haircut trends that you’ll want to consider trying in 2021.
Copper hair is one of the most daring but wearable shades that you can choose when you decide to transform your look. One of the most famous copper hair moments came in Luc Besson’s 1997 classic sci-fi film ‘The Fifth Element’, when the movie’s hairstylist managed to convince Milla Jovovich to dye her hair a bright copper shade.
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.
