  • Hey everyone, Kayley here with my five-minute ponytail routine.

  • I'm going to show you guys all the tricks that I use to make my ponytail look amazing in just

  • five minutes and you can use all of these tricks or just some of these

  • tricks depending on what you want to do. Without these tricks, my ponytail is kind

  • of limp, like the top is really heavy

  • the ponytail is limp and then it's saggy underneath the ponytail holder, none of

  • those things are good

  • I'm going to show you all the tricks that I use and I can do this in five minutes

  • every time and to prove it I'm actually gonna time myself through this whole

  • tutorial so let's get started

  • So the first thing I'm going to do is flip my hair in half from the ears up

  • and I'm going to clip the top half out of the way. That way we can deal with all

  • the hair at the bottom first

  • so after I have that top hair clipped up, I'm going to brush the bottom hair into

  • its own ponytail and you want that ponytail to rest right against the part from our section

  • Once you have that nice and tight, go ahead and secure it with an elastic

  • One of the big reasons that I like to do it this way is so that I don't have any

  • sagginess underneath my ponytail

  • if you keep that nice and tight, it makes the ponytail look more elevated

  • and actually a little bit more voluminous

  • so I like to pull that nice and tight so that there's absolutely nothing going on

  • there that I don't want. To finish out the bottom ponytail I'm taking a little

  • claw clip and splitting the pony tail in half. Then I'm going to take the top

  • half and hold it straight up and clip the little claw into it and that way it

  • actually helps to add volume and width to your ponytail, and it's going to be

  • hidden underneath all the rest of the hair so you don't have to worry about

  • this being really obvious

  • so here's the before and the after. You can see there is no saggy bottom on the

  • after and you kinda see a little bit of that lift starting in the ponytail as well

  • and now it's time to let the top down and what I'm going to do first is

  • actually tease the crown of my head just a little bit so I'm brushing the hair

  • straight back when you take that section of hair and I'm just using a hairbrush

  • to very lightly tease it. My hair likes to split in the back so I typically just

  • do a little bit of teasing just to make sure that everything stays together

  • This is one step that I don't do every time. I thought I would show you guys

  • today so you can see the full effect

  • but this is definitely something that you can skip especially if you're not a

  • fan of teasing

  • so I just did a bit of teasing and I'm smoothing it out now and then I'm going

  • to sweep it back and together with the first ponytail so basically we're going

  • to pull these two ponytails together into one and as I do that I'm also going to

  • look at how it looks from the front and make sure that I like the way that it's

  • arranged and this is one reason why I like doing a ponytail into halves

  • because all I have to do right now is deal with the top half and get it

  • perfectly the way that I want it. Then to secure it I'm actually going to use a

  • DIY hair bungee. You guys have seen me do this before where I take an elastic and

  • I put a bobby pin at either end and I use that to secure my ponytail but you

  • can use a normal elastic here and it would be totally fine. To use the DIY one

  • all you have to do is stick the bobby pin in one side, wrap the elastic around

  • and then pin in the other side. And this helps to kind of secure your hair

  • without messing up all the arranging we just did

  • but if that seems way too over achiever to you - just use a normal hair elastic and

  • it will work just as well. And you can look here and see that doing the

  • ponytail in two steps actually made the base of my ponytail a lot bigger and it

  • provided more lift for the top of my hair providing the illusion of having

  • more volume. To finish off adding even more volume I'm going to add one more

  • clip and by separating the top half of the ponytail in half and then I'm just

  • going to clip it in just like we did before

  • Again, this is adding volume to the base of your ponytail to make your hair look

  • a lot bigger than it actually is

  • you can see here the before versus the after, my after ponytail looks way more

  • volumized than the before. For the finishing touch

  • I'm taking a small piece of hair to wrap around the elastic and this time because

  • I find this the easiest

  • I'm just taking a very small piece and I'm wrapping this all the way around the

  • elastic until all the hair is used up, then I just pin the end

  • with one bobby pin and I'm done! But you can use more bobby pins if you feel you

  • really need that. Once you've got this hair wrapped around the elastic you are

  • completely done with this hairstyle and this one only took me four minutes and

  • 15 seconds to go from this to this and that is my five-minute ponytail routine

  • Now sometimes I use all of these tricks and sometimes I only use a couple of

  • them and that's what I encourage you guys to do. Find the tricks that are

  • going to work for you and help your ponytail to look that much more awesome

  • and use them to your advantage

  • I hope you guys really enjoy this video and if you enjoyed it and if you try out

  • these hairstyles, send me pictures using the hashtag #KayleyMelissa and I'll see

  • you guys in my next video
