with many of you going back to school and the Fashion Weeks beginning,
we thought we’d come up with a hair tutorial that intertwines both
aspects, so say hey to the bouffant ponytail!
hairstyle is a perfect combination of Fashion Week hair trends and an
easy peasy hairstyle that you can quickly do before school or work for a
super chic look! Perfecto! We’re going to be styling the bouffant
ponytail low as we love it this way, but you can wear it higher if you
your hair is a little on the short/thin side be sure to fit your hair
extensions before you start this hairstyle to add extra length and
thickness. Ensure that your extensions are not fitted higher than the
top of your ear as you will need to backcomb the top section of the hair
you have fitted your hair extensions, you need to backcomb the top
section of your own hair to create the bouffant to add that Fashion Week
vibe into your hairstyle! Taking your comb/backcombing brush, start at
the back of your hair near to the crown. Use your comb to section off
the top layer of hair and backcomb the section underneath; once
backcombed, spritz with hairspray and leave to dry before brushing it
down (be warned, it may look a little wild whilst you are backcombing,
but the end result will be super smooth). Backcomb the top section but
do this quite lightly as this section will be used to smooth over the
backcombed section underneath. Repeat this step on both sides ensuring
the top section of hair is backcombed lightly so the overall look of
the hairstyle is nice and smooth.
that your hair is backcombed and the hairspray has set, all that is
left to do is to pull it back neatly into a low ponytail. Use your
backcombing brush to smooth out any fly-aways whilst you are pulling it
back and secure in place with a thin hair band.
then need to take a small strand from the underneath of your bouffant
ponytail and wrap it around the base of your ponytail so the hair band
is hidden. Secure this piece of hair again underneath the base of the
ponytail with a bobby pin.
next step is optional (and if you have time before school hehe) but we
just LOVE adding some soft curls throughout the ponytail to thicken it
up even more and add extra texture! Be sure to be SUPER careful when
doing this as you don’t want to mess up your bouffant so curling with curling
tongs may be easier as it won’t pull on your hair as much. :) Brush
through the curls to soften them for a boho chic look.
Finally, to finish off, gently pull a few pieces of hair down to frame your face and voila! You’re ready to go...♥

it’s perfect for school, date nights, or a catch up with your girl
