how to: snatched, bouncy ponytail using easilocks hair

Ever wanted that Ariana style ponytail, but wondered why half of your length disappears as soon as you put your hair up into a high pony? The answer ladies is extensions! We need extensions to achieve a ponytail of great lengths, which closely resembles a horses tail 🙊 Don't worry, it's what all the celebs do! Here I am using the Easilocks quarter wig clip in extension, which is super easy as it is all just one piece which I clipped…

10 tips for washing hair! 1) Once a week use a scalp exfoliator - the scalp builds up with oil, dead skin and old products. 2) Always shampoo twice - the 1st shampoo will loosen up oil & debris and then the 2nd shampoo will fully remove it. 3) Shampoo the scalp with the pads of fingers, never shampoo & scrub the hair itself - when hair washing, it’s actually the scalp we want to wash. If we scrub the ends with shampoo, this will roughen up the cuticle leaving tangled and matted hair. The hair will get washed just by the shampoo running over it when being rinsed out. 4) Squeeze the water out of the hair before conditioning - this is so you are not diluting down your conditioner. 5) Comb conditioner gently through with a wide tooth comb and leave for 2-5 minutes - this is to make sure all hair is covered, not just the top layer and to remove tangles. Leaving on for 2-5 minutes will allow the conditioner to do it’s job of closing the cuticle and restoring moisture and protein. 6) Give yourself a little massage whilst the conditioner sits on the hair - this will stimulate blood circulation which then stimulates new hair growth! 7) Once a week, use a mask instead of a conditioner, leave on for 10-20 minutes (depending on what your mask tells you) - A mask penetrates deeper than your surface conditioner, this is more of a treatment. 8) Rinse off conditioner or mask with cool water - this will close the cuticle of the hair and leave your hair shiny and smooth. 9) Pat and squeeze hair with a towel, never rub - hair is vulnerable when wet so we need to treat it carefully. If we rub the hair, this will toughen up the cuticle and lead to matting/split ends. 10) When shopping for hair products, look for a shampoo with no sulphates & a conditioner with no silicones - sulphates are a type of salt which will dry your hair out over the long run. Sulphates are a type of plastic which deceive you into thinking your hair is silky soft when it’s a layer of silicone over the top!

Curling with a straightener! Can you tell a difference between the left side and the right side? Here, I use the same technique throughout: holding the @ghdhair styler vertical and pulling downwards. This will create a loose wave which doesn’t bounce up and lose length. On the right hand side all of the sections are curled in the same direction, away from the face. On the left hand side each section is curled in alternate ways, clashing into each other. Always think about the direction of the curl, this will change your overall look! Which side do you prefer? Left or right?

Curling with a straightener (the difference between the same direction & alternating directions!)

Have you ever curled your hair with the straighteners and then wondered why one side might look slightly different to the other side? It could quite well be the direction in which you are curling in! In this video I demonstrate the different looks achieved with curling all in the same direction (right hand side) and then alternating directions (left hand side) Curling or waving in the same direction, will allow all of your curls to fall into the same place creating a…

HOW TO MAKE YOUR CURLS HOLD & LAST‼️In 10 steps: 1) I always begin with freshly washed hair. Prep with heat protection, primer, oil etc. Your preference on hair care products. Hair must be 100% dry❗️I blow dry mine smooth with @ghdhair Helios. 2) I always recommend a tong or wand for hair that tends to drop or for finer/longer hair. Using a tong/wand, the hair will be wrapped around and this will give more volume & bounce to the hair. Here I am using the @ghdhair classic curl tong. 3) Mist every section with @ghdhair Curl Hold Spray before curling❗️ This contains heat protection & a memory hold polymer to make your curls bounce back into shape even after the brush out. 4) Start from the top and work down❗️This will allow the top and the front the longest amount of time to set into it’s curl shape for maximum hold and curl retention. (After all, the front is the most important!) 5) Tap out the curl, catch it in your hand and pin into shape whilst it’s still hot❗️This part is super important ‼️ 6) Continue to work your way down the head, finishing at the nape of the neck. 7) Mist hair with @ghdhair hairspray. 8) Wait for all pin curls to fully cool before removing❗️Also very important part‼️ Remove pins, bottom first, working up to the top. 9) Spray some more hairspray onto @ghdhair paddle brush & then brush through to dress out. (This will reduce static hairs when brushing and smooth hairs into place) 10) Don’t be scared of brushing out! As long as you have followed all steps above, your curls will not drop and will bounce into shape nicely. (Opt for wide tooth comb to dress out if you don’t want the result to be as soft & together as mine) Will you be trying these 10 steps for your curls? Let me know what you think! 🥰🥰🥰 #hair #hairgoals #hairstyles #ghdhair #curlyhair #curls #hairvideos #hairtutorial #chloeswiftstylist
