The Flip-In Hair Ponytail: All You Need To Know

A full, flawless ponytail is an enviable style for those that can create a perfectly positioned, voluminous cascade of shining, healthy hair. Creating the right shape, though, can be tricky. Most of us don’t think about our ponytail, it’s just the easiest grab-a-band and go hair solution for all occasions – the gym, the shops, or even to show off the neckline of a cocktail dress. But, the height of your ponytail can transform a look from business formal to party-ready glam, and how tight the hair is pulled into a band can drastically alter which of our facial features are enhanced by our style. Thankfully, we’ve created a handy guide to a perfect ponytail, so you can achieve a flawless finish time and time again.



Wearing Your Ponytail

For those blessed with cherub-like cheeks and a round face, the higher the ponytail, the better. This will balance your cheeks – especially if you create volume in the front of the style, too – to elongate your facial structure. A voluminous ponytail full of body is your ideal pony partner.


Sleeker styles work best for those flaunting heart and diamond-shaped facial contours. Keeping the ponytail straightened to accentuate and balance your features, a mid-height ponytail with glossy lengths will compliment your complexion without causing unbalance to your overall look.


The beautiful features of square faces can be perfectly accentuated for a power-forward look, with sky-high styles. But if you want to achieve a balanced, less-angular appearance, opt for a mid-height ponytail with lots of curls. These will soften the angles of your jawline, giving you the illusion of a more proportionate structure.


And for the lucky ones with an oval face shape – anything goes! Since you can try any height and degree of volume and texture, why not try a new style outside of your comfort zone?


How It Works

Our Flip-In Hair Ponytails are simple and easy to fit. Once you’ve secured your hair at your desired height with a fine elastic hair tie, fit one of the two hooks on your Flip-In Hair underneath your natural ponytail between the band and your scalp. Simply wrap the extension around your hair band at the top of your ponytail, and secure the second hook underneath your ponytail in a similar way, close to your scalp. To disguise the top of the extension, take a two-centimeter section of hair and wrap it around the top of the ponytail, and secure underneath the style with a hair grip.


Flip-In Hair Ponytail Styles

The simple ponytail is a gateway to so many other styles, that can all be enhanced with our Flip-In Hair Ponytail. While the initial ponytail placement will likely stay the same for your most flattering hairstyle, you can modify your updo with our simple extensions.


Add Plaits

Plaits and braids are a beautiful way of adding something special to your ponytail. Whether you opt for a French crown that sits atop your ponytail; a Dutch braid that extends from your hairline to the ends of your lengths; or you adapt your ponytail with a messy-chic fishtail plait, our Flip-In Hair Ponytail offers you the flexibility and security of plaiting your hair without any unsightly, uneven braiding.


Messy Bun

The elusive messy bun is an art form in itself. Attach your Flip-In Hair Ponytail as normal to start, then, twist the length of the ponytail, letting it loosely wrap and fold around the base of the ponytail. Secure the bun with a hair tie and grips, and then gently tease the pulled-back hair and the lengths of the bun to create that messed-up effect. Perfect for between wash days!


The Bubble

Just like the return of scrunchies, the bubble ponytail is making a comeback. After securing your Flip-In Hair Ponytail extension to a high ponytail, simply add hair elastics at even distances apart down the length of your ponytail. Tease each section of the hair to create the bubble between these elastics, and voila! This looks great if you just use a few elastics near the top of your ponytail, then let those glossy lengths fly free.

Flip-In Hair for the Extension Amateur

Taking the leap into the world of hair extensions can be daunting, particularly for complete newbies that are nervous of rookie mistakes when buying. When it comes to dreaming of shiny full-bodied waves or ultra-long mermaid manes, considering hair extensions is the obvious next step to enhance your natural locks. But, there can be some hurdles to overcome before you commit.

Finding Your Style

The first step is to decide which kind of extensions you think will work best for you. If you’re happy and comfortable with your natural tresses, that’s fantastic! Making peace with your natural hair colour and texture does wonders for your self-esteem, and we couldn’t be prouder of you. But we know that sometimes, change is good – for one-off use or a special occasion, mixing up your look can take you to new realms of confidence. If this is the case, temporary extensions are about to become your latest special occasion accessory.


But if you’re considering extensions for the first time and are hoping to add volume and body to lacklustre hair, it’s important to know what you’re committing yourself to. Permanent hair extensions use adhesive bonds that can damage your hair, and they take hours to fit professionally. Plus, they are a commitment of at least three months – they’re not ideal if you only want them for one evening. A different option that will boost your peace-of-mind before committing to more permanent extensions are temporary ones. But, beware temporary extensions that look unnatural, mismatched, and with large fixings: clip-based extensions can be uncomfortable to wear, and can snag the hair causing split end-like fraying of the strands. The large clips are also difficult to disguise, which can really put you off extensions forever.

The Flip-In Solution


Thankfully, our Flip-In Hair extensions can offer you all the benefits of added volume and length, without the damage, risk or commitment of other methods. For the hair extension amateur, our wired system is easy to fit and adjust for a comfortable, temporary wear that will stay in place all day (or night!). With no sharp clips, edges or chemicals, our extensions will not damage your natural hair, and you won’t have to alter your original hairstyle to accommodate them. With our 100% human hair available in an incredible range of colours, shades and textures, you’ll also find it easy to choose the right Flip-In Hair for you. We have registered stockists across the UK to offer you support and guidance, who can show you how to fit your very own Flip-In Hair.

Flip-In Hair Vs. Other Hair Extensions

Here at Flip-In Hair, we often get asked what the difference is between our unique wired hair extensions and other alternatives. Our question to you is: how much time have you got? Quite simply, there isn’t a straightforward, quick answer as there’s just so much to gain from our innovative products.

Easier Insertion

The most obvious difference between our products and those of our competitors is that no clips, no glue and no weaving is required during the insertion process. Flip-In Hair extensions are wired and adjustable to perfectly fit the size and shape of your head for optimum comfort and ease. They are easily inserted in a matter of seconds and in the comfort of your home thanks to the simplicity of our design, which eliminates the need for time-consuming and costly salon visits and hair maintenance.

Style When You Need It

In the past, choosing to have hair extensions might have proven to be a big decision, not just because of the cost and the potential for hair damage, but for the commitment to a permanent new style. There’s never a guarantee that you’ll love the outcome, but with Flip-In Hair you can remove your temporary hair extensions as quickly as you put them in. This allows for an immediate style change as and when the occasion calls for it, with a wide range of styles, lengths and colours to choose from.


Hopefully you’ll agree that Flip-In Hair offer a solution to a number of long-term concerns that come with traditional hair extensions, advantages that have garnered our wired hair extensions a mass worldwide attention and popularity in 10 short years.
