How to Poof a Ponytail Without Teasing or Hairspray

I recently had an email asking how to make big hair
without all the teasing and hairspray.
Now, I haven't figured out a way to do this with my hair down, 
but with it up? It's a cinch! 

  1. Begin with wavy or curly hair (dirty hair with a bit of texture works best!) Put your hair into a high ponytail.
  2. Add an alligator clip horizontally that goes through your hair under your ponytail and also partly through your pony. It should make the hair bounce up immediately.
  3. Make sure your hair in your ponytail is spread out throughout the top of the alligator clip
  4. Mess up your ponytail for added oomph.
  5. Voila— a big, messy ponytail.

If you really want you can add some hairspray, but I didn't find it necessary. 
Sure, it fell a bit throughout the evening, 
but that's OK because dudes don't tend to prefer it that big anyway.
Trust me, if you're doing big hair, guys probably are not a fan.
Keep it simple! ♥



  1. easy peasy! this might sound strange but I like your two-toned hair! I wish I had the nerve and time to grow mine out.

  2. Very simple! I love giving pony tails volume for some extra style! =)
