Big Texas Hair

If you're anything like me, the poofy pony has never been easy to master. Actually, up until about a week was impossible. My hair is super thin and stringy but I guess it likes to pretend to be thick because every time I tried, I would tease and tease and tease to put it back in a pony but inevitably it would fall every time....leaving me poof-less with a big rat's nest on top a mah head. To say the least, the poofy pony and myself have had many divorces along the way...

But wait! Before you hit play...

1. Sorry for not making my bed.
2. I was in a hurry which is why I'm so serious.
3. No-I'z not nakey. Pervs.
4. I think I officially maxed out the word "um"
and last...
Bloggers meet armpits. Armpits, bloggers.
Now that you're well acquainted, feel free to watch me in action.

What you'll need:
extra dirty hair
supa-tight bobby pins (aka "cheaters")
3 row comb
hairspray (optional)

The bobby pins I refer to can be found here and look like so:
I figured you out you little poof, you! muahahaha
To all you poofy pony delinquents out there (don't worry...I used to be one too) now have the secret & I fully expect to see you all sportin' some big 'ol Texas hair...even if you're not from the south.

Happy poofin' ladies!

  11. UGH! I suffer from the same limp, baby fine hair drama and always get frustrated when I'm trying to do the pony poof. It works about 50% of the time. I will definitely have to give this trick a try though! I hope this works for me too!

  16. I might be a TX girl very soon! My fiancé is currently living in Austin and getting his masters degree at UT and it looks like we might end up there for his work, so I am loving this and what a cute ponytail!
