How to Do a Ponytail with Weave

The following materials are indispensable to create a ponytail with weave:

Weave/bundle/Clip-ins: Select a high-quality weave that suits the color of your natural hair.

Step 1: Get Your Extensions and Weave Ready
Before you start, make sure your ponytail weave is neat and clean. Wash and condition them if necessary. Make sure they are ready to use. Many hair stylists choose to use a hot comb or flat iron to straighten hair in this step, which can sustain a polished appearance and make it easier to advance to the next stage.

Step 2: Create a Flat Base
Remove any knots or tangles from your natural hair; a wide-tooth comb is a good helper. Keep your hair free of lumps and bumps. 

Step 3: Choose Where to Put the Ponytail
Decide where you want your high ponytail to rest. It can be positioned precisely on top or slightly above for a more dramatic and genie-like appearance. Pull your natural hair up into a high ponytail with an elastic hair tie. Make sure it is secure and stable. Use hair gel or edge control to smooth down your edges.

Step 4: Weave and Fasten the Extensions
Take your weave now and divide it in half. Take one piece and hold it in each hand. One weave section should be positioned beneath the ponytail and wrapped around its base. The weave can be fastened in place with hair glue or bobby pins. Next, wrap the second section of the weave around the base of the ponytail in the opposite direction. Once more, fasten the weave in place with bobby pins. Two hair bundles can achieve the perfect effect, more could make the hair appear thick, heavy, and unnatural.

Step 5: Style as Your Desired
