2. Add volume to the ponytail

Split the ponytail into 2 equal sections, one on top of the other. 

Adding volume

Place a small claw clip on the bottom section of the ponytail, directly under the hair tie.

Adding volume

Wrap a piece of hair around the base of the ponytail to hide the hair tie and secure it in place.

3. Remove the bang curlers

Remove one curler from your bangs to check if you left them for enough time. If you’re satisfied with the curl, remove the rest.

4. Make the bangs dense

Bunch up the bangs to make a shorter and denser section of curls.
