Ideas For Short Hair-Take out a little piece of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the base of the ponytail to cover up the elastic. Now with your topsy tail (you can get these at Kmart, Walmart, Target... really any big box store usually has these.) and you put it through the ponytail. Even through the elastic for added support. Out the tail end of that hair you wrapped inside and yank it through. It will secure nice and tight and you will be left with prettied up ponytails.
