Everyone wants fuller, thicker hair.  Especially when you throw your hair up into a ponytail, you want it to appear as full and luscious as it can!  There are lots of different ways you can achieve this, you just have to follow a few tips in order to do so.  Here are 5 different tips to volumize your ponytail!

  • Before every ponytail, you’ll need to add some texture to your hair. This will make your hair look fuller before you even put it into a ponytail.  Whether you do this with mousse or texture spray, it’s the first step to almost every hairstyle!
  • Prop up your ponytail with two bobby pins. Set two bobby pins in place under your ponytail like the picture below.  This gives it the height it needs and will also help keep it in place for the night!Chelsea Crockett - Bobby Pin Hack
  • Add some dry shampoo. Dry shampoo does more than just its original purpose.  If you add some to your hair before you put it up, it’ll feel cleaner and appear thicker!
  • Tease different sections of your hair. To keep the messy look, tease different parts of your pony so it’s not too over-the-top but still has some lift in it.

Did these tips work for you?  Share with me below what works best for your hair!

Spring and summer hairstyles are my favorite. Braids, buns, updos, and fun ponytials are what I think of! If you are having the winter hair blues, check out this fun ponytail to get you in the spring style mood.bubble ponytail

  1. Pull your hair into a high ponytail. Take a small section from the bottom of the pony and wrap it around the elastic that is pulling your hair back. Pin this hair in place so it is covering the elastic.
  2. Take the top section of ponytail and tease it a bit. Place a clear elastic about 3 inches down on the ponytail, then wrap hair around it and secure like you did on the above elastic.
  3. Continue this process until you reach the end of your hair. Poof out the hair as you go to make the ponytial inbetween elastics “bubble” out.

This hair style is so fun, flirty, and girly! Will you try it this spring?

XOXO, Chels

Obvious actions like drying and straightening your hair can cause damage and split ends, but did you know there are a lot of other unknown ways that you’re damaging your hair?  Surprisingly, there are multiple actions that seem harmless, but can cause permanent damage to your hair.  Being aware of these things are extremely important.  I will break down a few of the most unhealthy hair habits to give you your most healthy hair yet.Chelsea Crockett- damaged hair

  • Be gentle when you brush wet hair.  Brushing through wet hair can cause damage and split ends.  It can also pull out a lot of hair, causing a loss in volume.  Start at the bottom with a wide-toothed comb and work your way to the scalp.  This will help prevent breakage and hair loss.
  • Don’t wash your hair too much!  Shampooing your hair can too often can wash away your hair’s natural moisture.  This moisture gives your hair that healthy, shiny look!  You don’t want to wash that away!
  • Ponytails create breakage.  Wearing a ponytail is always a cute and easy hair style, but wearing one every day with a tight pony tail holder can cause breakage.  This can even cause permanent damage!

Don’t commit one of these hair crimes!

We’ve all heard those crazy myths about ways to make your hair shinier, grow longer, and how to get rid of those pesky split ends.   But how many of those myths that you read are actually true?  It’s time to find out what’s true and what’s false.

  • Wearing tight ponytails can make your hair fall out or break. TRUE. Strands may break off as a result of your hair being pulled tight or held too tightly with aChelsea Crockett- tight ponytail band. To decrease your chances, do not sleep with your hair up or wear it in a ponytail every day.
  • Cold water makes your hair shinier. FALSE. Your hair does not contain living cells; therefore it cannot react to certain water temperatures.
  • Using the same shampoo repeatedly will cause it to stop working. FALSE. Since it can be hard to find a shampoo that works for your hair type and texture, once you’ve found the one that works, then why change it?! Try a new shampoo for the sake of it will most likely not benefit your hair.
  • Always use a wide-tooth comb for wet hair. TRUE. Using this type of comb will reduce breakage after you get out of the shower. Since wet hair tends to have more tangles, a wide-toothed comb will keep your hair from breaking.

Your hair is very important and knowing what’s best for it is even better!

Emergency! Bad Hair Day: 3 Quick Hairstyles for a Formal Event

 I think we’re all in agreement that a bad hair day counts as an emergency… A girl’s worst nightmare!  Especially when the event you have is formal or dressy, with no time to fix up your hair.  I decided to put together three easy, on-the-go hair styles that can substitute for any fancy up-do!

            Style number one… a high bun, or sock bun!  Chelsea Crockett - High BunAlthough the traditional sock bun is still cute and fashionable, I like to put a little spin on it and create a high bun.  It’s almost the same thing as a sock bun, but with a slight different look to it.  I have a tutorial on my channel titled “Easy High Bun.”  Check that out and you’re set!  It’s super simple and non-time consuming.

            Style number two… a slicked back ponytail, AKA the Kardashian ponytail :)!  This one works best with longer hair.  To start out, you’ll need a ponytail, bobby pins, and some hairspray.  Leave out a small section of hair at the back of your head.  Pull your hair back into a high ponytail, making sure the elastic is tight around your hair.  After, wrap the sectioned piece of hair around the tie and secure it with a couple bobby pins.  If you have fly-a-ways, spray them down with hairspray so your ponytail looks clean and slick.

            Last, but not least, style number 3… braided half-up.  Part your hair where you normally do and take one, two-inch front sections from each side of your part.  Braid both pieces and secure them together in the back with bobby pins or a small hair tie. 

                        Hope this helps next time you’re a little off schedule!
