Replicating Sézane’s sexy ponytail is a great look to wear anywhere. In last week’s Bird’s Eye View, Sexy Sézane Hair I promised to highlight how to add oomph to your ponytail, if yours is on the skimpy side like mine. There is enough interest (aside from the actual ponytail) in the total look of this style that I love wearing my hair like this even with my small ponytail. But when I want to dial it up, I can create instant thickness with a synthetic wrap-around ponytail piece, by Hairdo*. The version I’m wearing here is an earlier version that I bought years ago. Because it has highlights and several different colors, it’s easy to match up with your own hair color–even when buying it online.
I chopped off quite a bit of length from my Hairdo ponytail myself. It’s easy to do, or just take it to your stylist. I haven’t worn my ponytail in awhile. Looking at the photos I took for this story, I think I’m going to ask my stylist to trim it even shorter, and to cut in some movement to the bottom. If it looks too perfectly thick and chopped straight across, it doesn’t look as natural.
To add to the Sézane look, and keep the ponytail enmeshed better with my own hair, I added some wave to the ponytail before putting it on. Don’t let your curling iron get above 240 degrees so you don’t melt the hair!
Putting the ponytail in is so easy. Simply push the comb into the top of your ponytail–down in through the elastic holding your ponytail. Then wrap the top of the ponytail piece under and over your own ponytail. The velcro, on the end with the long extending piece of hair, secures a tight hold on the whole thing. Wrap the long piece of hair, that is extending out, a few times around your new fabulously thick ponytail. Secure that in a couple places with bobby-pins. And voilà! the best sexy French ponytail.
Have fun with the way you look! Take a risk and play around with a ponytail extension.
