STEP BY STEP BUBBLE PONYTAIL TUTORIAL BY STYLIST EMMA WILLIS
PREP: Apply @dphue The Blonding Brush (heat activated highlighter) to all the front areas of hair which frame the face and add some heat.
STEP 1: Part the hair and create a tiny pony tail on the crown of the head (leaving the majority of hair all around the hair line free & loose) this will be the base that you will then secure your clip-in hair extensions. I used 22 inch @HiddenCrownHair ones.
STEP 2: Wrap around the small secured tiny ponytail a 3 piece clip-in extension - remember you want this to be long 22 / 24 inches as each bubble with the teasing you do will only decrease the length by an inch - it also depends on how many bubbles you want in your pony too!
STEP 3: Pull ALL the rest of the hair up to create that high pony thus hiding the base of the extensions - so now all the hair is up in one high ponytail
STEP 4: Section out and start to tease at the roots building up to 3/4 inches moulding into a bubble shape as desired depending on how big you want your bubbles spritzing each piece as you go with @amika un.done texture spray and top / outer pieces with a little Star Glow Styling Wax by @oribe secure Ito your finished bubble with a clear small plastic band
STEP 5: Repeat above according to how many bubbles you want in the ponytail
STEP 6: Finish with a spritz of @ogx_beauty Multi-Benefit Hairspray
