The Illusion

As the name suggests, this hairstyle can deceptively look like a ponytail that’s parted over your shoulders but it actually is a half hair up, half hair down faux pony. Pull half your hair from the front into a high pony and fasten it with an elastic band about one inch in front of the crown of your head. Then, wrap around it a strand of hair taken from the side. Pin it up with bobby pins to keep it from loosening up or tangling. And finally, let your ponytail hair down with the rest of your tresses over the shoulder.

To make your pony hang really high, pick some hair extension for length, apply it to your hair and pull it all up in a high ponytail at the crown of your head. Get your favourite hair tie and secure your ponytail hairstyle. As simple as that!

If you’ve got a square face-cut and your major mane is perfectly shaped, here is your perfect partner from our magic box of ponytail hairstyles.  Separate your front strands and style them into place you like it before you tie the pony on your mid-mane. Never pull those strands from the tail because it will mess up the whole hairstyle. Pair this up with your favourite sexy bump up top.
