Have you only used a hair tie for your braid until now? Then we have to disappoint you, but you have probably been doing it wrong all your life. Using multiple hair ties is actually one of the simplest and at the same time most effective tricks to make your braid look more voluminous. This will make the ponytail stand out a little more from the back of your head, giving it a much fuller look. So, instead of tying the braid with one hair tie next time, secure it with several hair ties that you put all one after the other.

In this way, you ensure that the braid does not hang limply down and create the illusion of more fullness and volume . The updo becomes even cooler if you wrap a strand of hair around the ponytail and hide the hair clip underneath.
