    1. Create a section from temple to temple around the back, and secure the top section with a clip.
    2. Attach the easiVolume hair extension. Note: Watch a video on how to apply easiVolume – the piece shown here is the 14”, in color 4. (You should choose an easiVolume hair extension that best matches your hair length and color.)
    3. Blend your own hair over the easiVolume. Quick Tip: Before you begin curling, spray the entire head of hair with a working spray or light hold hairspray
    4. Curl the hair using a 1 inch curling iron. Taking sections that are equal to the barrel size of the curling iron. The tool we’re using here is the 1” Nano Ceramic Curling Iron.
    5. Set curls in place using pin curl clips. Here’s the trick: Alternate the direction of the curls along the sides and face frame area.
    6. Spray again with hairspray and allow the curls to completely cool.
    7. Once the curls have cooled gently remove all the clips.
    8. Back comb/tease the entire head of hair.
    9. Using a boars bristle brush, lightly smooth the surface of the hair to create shape. Be careful not to take the bristles to deep into the hair, doing so will remove the tease.
    10. 10.  Direct the hair into the desired shape using the boars bristle brush and your other hand to guide the hair.

    Set with a strong hold hairspray and you’re ready to walk that red carpet!

    To watch a video on how to apply this piece click here.

    1. Start by curling your hair to match the texture of the ponytail extension this particular piece comes curled. (By the way - if you wish to wear this ponytail straight, you can straighten it with your favorite flat iron because it is made with heat-friendly synthetic hair.)
    2. Section your hair from ear to ear and place it into a small bun or ponytail. Clip the top section out of the way for Step 4.
    3. Place the base of your drawstring pony over your bun or ponytail and pull the elastic band to tightly secure. Open the small clip located on the top, comb it over your hair, and then snap it closed.
    4. Unclip the top section from Step 2 and taking the tip of your teasing brush or comb, prep a small section to tease.
    5. Start at the crown and pull up a 1-2 inch section – the smaller the section the more volume you will create. Brush the hair back mid-way and run the brush down the length of the hair towards the crown, when you reach the scalp pull the brush out and start again. Make quick short strokes until you have the desired height and fullness. (Tip: the bigger the hair the closer to god.)
    6. Every time you backcomb spray a little bit of hairspray so that it holds the hair longer.
    7. Carefully use your brush to smooth down any fly-a-ways.
    8. Wrap smaller sections of the top around the base of the ponytail attachment and secure with bobby pins.
    9. To finish it off, pull sections of the secured top up to reach the desired height and look.

    That's all - super easy, right? If you give it a shot let us know, we'd love to see how your Party Pony turns out!
