A long ponytail is super sleek and can be worn formally or as a chic daytime look. If you have shorter hair however, you may feel like you’re at a disadvantage. Thankfully, there’s a secret trick to give you that longer ponytail in just minutes – no matter your hair length!






  • Bring all your hair back and brush out any tangles. Once your hair is brushed, grab a section closer to the top of your head and secure a ponytail. If you prefer, you can leave out a few pieces of your bangs in the front (especially if shorter).
  • Next, putting this ponytail aside, you’re going to grab the bottom section of your hair and create a SECOND ponytail near the nape of your neck. Secure and fan out the second ponytail. NOTE: What’s important is that both of these ponytails contain an EQUAL amount of hair.
  • Now your ready to blend the two ponytails together. Brush them together using your Leyla Milani Hair ‘Miracle Brush’ and fan out the top ponytail. Using a few bobby pins, pin the ‘top sides’ of the ‘top ponytail’ in place, so as to cover the side view of your hair.
  • Now you’ve just instantly created a longer ponytail by actually making two separate ponytails! Spray a light coat of hairspray and/or shine spray and you‘re all set. For ADDITIONAL length to your ponytail (while also adding thickness and volume to your hair) is to use your Leyla Milani Hair Extensions! Here is how to apply them:
