For this hairstyle you are going to need several hair ties, depending on how long your hair is. Start your bubble ponytail with a half up half down style. Roughly three to four inches down you want to place another hairtie. Take the hair in between the two ties and loosen the hair by pulling it. Add another hairtie three to four inches down, and repeat steps.

When your hair is styled, parted in the middle, and your ends are curled, take several sections of the back and crown, close to where your ponytail would normally sit. Tease the hair. Once your hair is teased, spray hairspray for an extra hold. Tie your hair into a high ponytail and wrap a single strand of your hair around the hair tie itself so it is not visible. If you need a slightly stronger hold, spray more hairspray. Hello sass!

Divide the entire head of hair into a half up half down style. Tie off the half down section. Take the half up section and tease at the roots until full of volume. Once teasing is complete, gather the hair in total and tie into a ponytail. The teased hair sitting on top on the pre-ponytail should be sitting high and your entire look should be one big, voluminous ponytail.
