Slumber Party Saturday! How to Create a Sleek Low Ponytail with Hair Extensions
If you’re genetically blessed with long, luscious locks; then ultra-low sleek ponytails are as easy as pie for you. However, if you’ve ever been in a situation where you think you’re doing a great job ‘growing out’ your hair, it can be a different story. If you've ever felt like your low pony looks more like a rat tail, it may be time for extensions. There are so many hair extensions that can be gentle on your hair and we always recommend (extensions or not) sleeping on our pure satin pillowcases which are ultra-smooth for hair skin and lashes.

Here's how to create a simple low pony tail with clip in extensions. This is a great look a few days after a blow out or for the holidays. Welcome to our new series, Slumber Party Saturday with beauty tips, tricks and secrets...
While it used to be a bit of a taboo, it seems now that nearly every woman in Hollywood wears extensions on some level. Christie Brinkley considers them one of her anti-aging secrets. A few years ago, the ‘blonde bombshell revealed that she wears 16-inch clip-in hair extensions almost every day.' (Christie Brinkley pic via ET Online.com) Christie has often posed in photos with her daughters and photoshoots including Sports Illustrated and the past few years wearing her clip in extensions.
Use a round brush to avoid lumps and bumps and pull into a low pony tail. Use hairspray to keep frizz and flyaways. Whether you’re going for a bit of a messier low pony or ultra slicked back, we love the effect of covering your pony tail holder with your hair. Especially, if you have a random short chunk of your real hair. In fact, the only part of the ponytail that is real hair in this photo is the part completely wrapped around and bobby pinned over my hair tie.
PS - Christie Brinkley uses the hair pieces to add body and highlights to her thinning locks, which instantly reverses the signs of aging hair.’ – Huffington Post.
We’ve bought random hair extensions from salons, but always recommend ‘real hair’ and brands that come with about 7 per pack rather than one big section. A good idea is to ask friends or your hairstylist who can also trim, or color them to better match your color. These clip-ins in this post are from a EU brand priced reasonably called 1001 Extensions. ** If you are in Dallas, we highly recommend checking out Global Group Hairdressing Group in the Design District and ask for extension expert Garrett Lemmons. Cheers to a holiday season with amazing extensions.
Don't forget to care for your hair by removing your clip in extensions at night and using our pure satin pillowcases which are gentle on hair and help prevent breakage while you sleep. Full collection below.
