Hair-wrapped pony Stylists love the look of hair wrapped around the elastic. To get this look, skip the nasty fake hair ones you can buy in drugstores and department stores (tacky!) and follow these directions instead:p] Step 1: Pull hair back into a ponytail. Step 2: Pull a pencil-thick piece of hair from the bottom of the pony. Step 3: Wrap hair around elastic. Leave two inches to pull down through the elastic. Step 4: Secure with a couple bobby pins.
