A drawstring ponytail is a type of hairpiece that is designed to be attached to your natural hair to create a ponytail hairstyle. It usually consists of a synthetic hair extension attached to a circular piece of fabric or mesh with a drawstring attached to it. The drawstring is used to secure the ponytail extension to your natural hair by wrapping it around the base of your own ponytail and pulling the drawstring tight.
You can select the drawstring ponytail that best suits your hair type from a variety of lengths, hues, and textures. To achieve the look you choose, they can also be found in a variety of styles, including straight, wavy, curly, and braided.
Drawstring ponytails are a quick and easy way to add length and volume to your hair while still getting the ponytail look without having to spend a lot of time shaping it. With careful maintenance, they may be reused numerous times and are very inexpensive.
How to secure drawstring ponytail?
Here are the steps to secure a drawstring ponytail:
Prepare your hair: Before attaching the drawstring ponytail, prepare your hair by brushing it out and making sure it's smooth and tangle-free. If your hair is long, you may want to put it in a bun or ponytail first to keep it out of the way.
Attach the drawstring: Pull your hair back into a ponytail and secure it with a hair elastic. Then, place the drawstring ponytail over your ponytail and adjust it so that it sits comfortably on your head.
Secure the drawstring: Pull the drawstring tight to secure the ponytail in place. Tie the drawstring into a knot or bow to keep it secure. Some drawstring ponytails also come with combs or clips that you can use to further secure the ponytail.
Style the ponytail: Once the drawstring ponytail is secure, you can style it as desired using heat styling tools or products.
Maintain the ponytail: To maintain the drawstring ponytail, avoid excessive brushing or tugging on the hair, as this can cause the drawstring to loosen. Instead, use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to style the hair.
It's important to note that while drawstring ponytails are relatively easy to attach, they may not be suitable for all hair types. If you have very fine or thin hair, the drawstring may not be able to secure the ponytail properly. Additionally, avoid wearing the drawstring ponytail for extended periods as it can cause tension on your scalp and damage your natural hair.
