It’s hot enough during the summer, so you don’t need to add any more heat to your hair styling.

Here is how you can get a perfectly bouncy ponytail without using heat. All you need is a claw clip!

Tools and materials:

  • 1 hair elastic
  • 1 claw clip

1. Make a ponytail

Start by making a regular ponytail at the back of your head, securing it with a regular hair elastic.
