Next, create a center part and smooth hair into a low or high ponytail. It’s up to you how you want to style it. Sweep all of your hair back in a low ponytail at the nape of your neck; secure tightly with an elastic to keep it anchored. If you have bangs, let it loose or sweep them back along with your locks. Spritz your hair with a light-hold hair spray. If your locks have plenty of natural texture, style as usual. However, if it is not, add volume and texture to your hair by teasing your ponytail gently using paddle brush. This will create an extra lift.

Place small rubber bands all the way down your ponytail with the same distant intervals. Add as many as you want. Tug your hair outward gently between every two bands. This will create a spherical shape for your bubbles. If your hair isn’t showing enough volume, try teasing out the bubbles a little more.
