How to Do a Frontal Ponytail?

Have we ever told you how easy it is to perfect your frontal ponytail? Well, if we haven’t, then here is a short guide to doing it on your own.

First things first, straighten your natural hair properly and make sure that your natural hair looks like the lace frontal you will be wearing. Create an ear-to-ear parting and apply your gel properly on the middle and front parts of your hair. As a sleek and shiny look is our goal, this part is quite important.

Now grab your comb and lay down everything properly. Take your brush to ensure that the hair is laid off and set all pretty, and spray spritz and brush your hair into the shape of a ponytail to achieve that gorgeous sleek look. After that, grab a hair tie and make a ponytail out of your natural hair.

The next step is to wrap up your hair and sit under the dryer to let the style dry. Then you need to grab your lace frontal and set it on your head accordingly, cutting off the excess lace. Apply spritz to the area where you will be applying the glue and all, and then take an eyeliner to create a mark around your forehead with the help of your frontal. This mark will work as a guideline, and you need to apply your glue behind the mark.

Apply the glue once properly and let it dry until it’s clear. Then go for the second round of glue application. Wait for it to turn clear as well, and when it’s done, grab your frontal and apply the lace. Press everything properly and grab your scissors to cut off the extra part of lace from your front and sides. Make sure to clean up the mark that you made earlier with your eyeliner.

The next part is quite fun. This is where you style the front part of your ponytail in a sleek and elegant way. You can create the super-trendy side swoop style, and to achieve that gorgeous look, use your hair foam and set the style in a proper way using your comb. Make sure to leave out some pieces of hair at the sides to create slayed edges later.

Now untie the ponytail you made before, and combine your frontal with your natural hair. Give it the shape of a ponytail by brushing properly, and tie your ponytail again. Use the spritz again to set the look. At this point, you can style your edges and give them a super-cool appearance. You can cut off the extra length if the piece of hair is too long.

Once the front part is styled beautifully, spray spritz again. Make a braid out of the ponytail you made earlier and tie the end in a properly secured way. Then add your favorite hair extension to the style. You can opt for a sew-in session around the braid with your extension. Around the base of the ponytail, you can wrap your extension using a bobby pin. When it reaches the end, attach a string at the end of the track and wrap the string around your ponytail to make sure it stays secure. Use bobby pins to secure everything properly as well.

Finally, take a piece of hair, apply your edge control gel to it and comb it out properly, and then wrap it around the base of your ponytail to achieve that natural look. And that’s it, your frontal ponytail is ready to be flaunted with style!

Tips and Tricks for Wearing a Frontal Ponytail

Frontal ponytails can be worn in the way we have mentioned above, or you can simply go for a wig. But as a beginner, you must be wondering what are the small tricks that will make your styling session for a frontal ponytail easier. For your convenience, here are our tips to get you started.

According to Sunber Hair, low frontal ponytails are better options for beginners as they are easier to do compared to the high ponies. So if you are just starting your journey with a frontal ponytail, keeping things low can prove to be a great choice!

If you are worried about whether the hairline will look unnatural after placing the frontal, then you can simply use hairspray so that everything looks natural and blended, according to Sunber Hair.

Emily Cottontop recommends plucking the frontal after placing it on the wig cap in order to achieve a hairline that looks natural. This is a tip that’s going to be a savior for sure!

If you want a fuller-looking ponytail with mesmerizing volume, then we recommend choosing a hair extension with the perfect curl pattern to seal the deal. You also need to buy more than one pack of hair to achieve such results.
