High Pony made with a Bandette Comb
Y’all I found a new hair accessory. Ok… it’s more of a tool than an accessory. I love it. I’ve actually been looking at this thing for YEARS but never could envision I to use it in my hair. Most likely cause I didn’t have enough length. But yesterday, I decided to buy it at Claire’s (or was it Icing) and couldn’t wait to get home to use it. And when I did, WOW, this thing is definitely a keeper.
It’s simply a big comb that’s typically used to make a french roll. Underneath on one side there’s a ponytail band attached. You simply put the comb under your pony, pull the band across and wallah, you have the most gorgeous, voluminous ponytails ever. So much so, I just had to share this with you in a quick tutorial. If you’ve got the length, you gotta try this!
Here’s what my finished do looks like. My hair is styled into flat twists along the hair line with the remainder in two strand twists. The twists were set on red flexirods which gave them a soft elegant curl that hang down the back.
Pull all your twists together and postion it where you want near the top of your head. Then stick the bandette comb down into your twists, making sure to get a comfortable lay against your scalp. If you look carefull at the right of the comb, you can actually see the band that’s achored to the back on one side.
Look near my wrist and you can see the band sticking out. You’re actually going to pull that band under your hair and anchor it on the other end of the comb.
Here what it looks like after you get it secured over the other end.
Let go of your twists and let them cascade down the back. And wallah, you have a high pony made with a bandette comb. I really hope someone gives this a try. If you do…please get back to me with some pics cause I’d love to see it.
