The ponytail gets grown up

21 Jul

The ponytail has always been thought of as quite a girlish style. But this summer it’s getting a makeover and it’s far more grown up.

At Dream Girl we know not every woman is born with the hair they want for the style they desire. So if your ponytail needs a little extra help them use a ponytail hair extensions, clip or or tie it over your natural locks and add extra length or volume.

Here are our favourite ponytail styles

Ariana Grande

Her signature high ponytail is sleek and stylish, but girly enough to nod to the ponytail’s past. You’ll need extra length to really achieve this long style. Make sure their hair extension is the same colour as your natural locks (and with Dream Girl you’ve got over 80 shades to choose from).

Wear the ponytail as high as you can on the crown of your head. Keep the ponytail sleek. Take a section from under the ponytail and twist it around the bobble, so that it’s covered. Use serum to keep hair smooth.

Beyonce’s side pony

A hide side ponytail has probably not been seen much since the 80s. But Beyonce pulls it off. Do the exact same styling as above, just have the ponytail slightly off to the side.

Zendaya’s low pony

Perfect for those whose hair has plenty of texture, this style is sleek at the roots but is full on once you reach the tips. Smooth hair down into a middle parting and tie a ponytail at the nape of the neck. Style the ponytail hair extension with some back combing to achieve as much texture as possible before you fasten it.

Jessica Alba’s sleek low pony

A ponytail might not be your go to style if you’ve got a black tie or a glam event. Yet this style shows you can completely go for a sleek style that works great for a night out.

Part your hair into a deep side parting and smooth hair down with serum or spray. Tie hair into a ponytail just behind your ear. Keep the ponytail as sleek as you can, even if it’s not straight (it’s about looking styled and glossy, not about having one texture).


Three styles for summer

27 May

We believe in preparation. How do you want your hair to look this summer? Start thinking now and get it right. Here are our top three favourite styles for summer 2016.

Crowd braid

Plaits have been everywhere this spring and they’re the perfect ingredient for a summer hairstyle. A half up-do sprinkles a little magic into this style. It also has the practical element of keeping long hair away from your face on warm days.

Start the braid almost at the nape of the neck underneath the ear. Plait and tie. Twist the braid across like a headband, pinning it back where you started to gather the rest of your hair in a loose tie back. Simple for those with longer locks.

Messy topknot

This is a summer perennial and it’s easy to see why. Stylish, practical and perfect for straight, wavy or curly hair it’s simple to achieve in minutes.

Twist hair into a high ponytail on the crown of the head. Don’t worry about a few strands falling out here and there. Wrap the tail of the pony into a loose bun. For those with very thick hair you’ll need to pin as you go. For those with finer hair, you twist, tuck and pin. If your hair is fine, clip on hair extensions will add fullness, as will a ponytail hair extension.

Pull out a few strands for that “just done” finish.

Voluminous low pony

Low ponytails are definitely in vogue this summer. A voluminous do will stop it looking drab and it’ll add plenty of texture and lift. Add mousse and thickening spray to damp hair before drying. Tie hair into a gentle side pony, just to the edge of the nape of the neck.

Take a section of hair from under the ponytail and twist over the tie. Pin in place underneath. Let the pony fall over your shoulder while your fringe and other strands frame your face.
