These types of ponytails feature a drawstring and small combs which are used to attach the ponytail to a person's natural hair.

  1. 1

    Wash, condition and dry your natural hair as you normally would.

  2. 2

    Comb your natural hair thoroughly with a wide-tooth comb to remove any knots or tangles.

  3. 3

    Brush your natural hair in the direction you want the ponytail to go, then apply gel or your favourite styling product on your hair and edges to give your hair a firm hold.

  4. 4

    Use an elastic band to put your hair into a secure ponytail. Wrap the hair that is in the ponytail around the base of the ponytail to make a bun. Secure the bun with two hair clips.

  5. 5

    Place the drawstring ponytail over your natural ponytail and secure it with the attached clips.

  6. 6

    Pull the drawstrings on the ponytail tightly so that the drawstring ponytail completely covers the ponytail you made of your natural hair.

  7. 7

    Wrap the drawstring around the base of the ponytail and secure it with two hair clips.

  8. 8

    Wrap a ponytail holder around the base of the drawstring ponytail to make it look more natural.
