Is your hair thinning, or has it just never really been thick? When you put your hair in a ponytail, do you wish it would look fuller and longer? There are many solutions for this “problem” already available on the market. One very popular one is clip in ponytails which can be expensive and often difficult to match your hair color.

I am so excited to have found this great tip and trick to having a longer, fuller ponytail online the other day! Honestly, there are TONS of great ideas for new ways to do the pony, I wanted to share something that can work well for everyone. As you can see in the image instruction, instead of pulling all your hair back into one band, separate it into two. When you use the top ponytail to cover and conceal the bottom one it creates the illusion of longer, fuller hair! Go on, give it a try and let me know how it works for you.
