The Celebrity Wrap-Around Ponytail Hairstyles That Caught Our Eye In 2021

The Celebrity Wrap-Around Ponytail Hairstyles That Caught Our Eye In 2021

Years ago, ponytails were reserved for the bad hair days and afternoons spent lazing around on the sofa while Sex and The City re-runs played in the background. But, in recent months, they’ve been catapulted onto the red carpet - with everyone from Beyonce to Rita Ora putting their own spin on them.

From low ponytails embellished with accessories to the powerful and sleek high ponytail, many celebs are taking the standard ponytail up a notch by wrapping hair around it. And, as one of the hottest hair trends of the moment, we thought it was only fitting to look back over the last 12 months and bring you our favourite looks. 

Before we reveal some of our best-loved celebrity ponytails, we thought you might want to recreate the look yourself. Start with washed and dried hair. Using a brush, smooth all of your hair backwards as if you were pulling it up into a standard ponytail, at the height of your choice. Then, take a small piece of hair from the ponytail - around half an inch - and wrap it around the base of your ponytail.

Some people prefer to curl this piece of hair before wrapping it around to help secure it into place. Once you’ve wrapped the piece of hair around your ponytail, use a bobby pin to secure it. For a sleek look, you can try to hide the end of your hair. Once secure, brush your ponytail and use some hairspray to ensure your look stays in place. It really is that easy. 

Using Hair Extensions For A Wrap-Around Ponytail

Don’t worry if your hair is too short to create your own wrap-around ponytail as, at Cliphair, we have a Straight Up Wrap-Around Ponytail meaning no-one has to miss out. Alternatively, our range of hair extensions will give your natural hair added volume and depth in minutes - making those Hollywood hairstyles even easier to achieve!

These celebrities prove that your school girl hairstyle can be elevated into an A-list updo. 

She may be part of one of the world’s most famous families but Kylie still looks to other people for her inspo. In fact, the inspiration for her wrap-around ponytail at the premiere of Netflix's 'Travis Scott: Look Mom I Can Fly' was none other than best friend Bella Hadid. We love the sleek fringe and the flicked finish to the actual ponytail. It’s giving us 60s vibes. You can achieve this look by opting for an ultra long clip-in ponytail and gently curling the end of the ponytail inwards.

To be honest, all of the Jenner/Kardashian household are fans of the wrap-around ponytail and they can all pull it off. Jealous. Unlike Kylie who gave us 60s vibes though, Kourtney went for the slicked back look with a poker straight pony turning heads. Opt for human hair extensions in your choice of color and get ready to give yourself the tightest, sleekest look. 

American Actress Alison Brie blew us all away at the premiere at the 2018 MTV movie and TV Awards. Not just because of how amazing she looked, but also because she set the bar high for celebrity ponytail hairstyles. We love the height and character of her ponytail, and when paired with the uber cool blue eyeshadow it really does create a lasting impression. Why not pair your wrap-around ponytail with a clip-in bangs and turn heads for the right reason?

Her love life might be making the news these days but, at Cliphair, we’ve got Zendaya’s name on our lips for other reasons - her incredible take on the wrap-around ponytail. Instead of opting for the traditional full ponytail look that we know and love, Zendaya brought her wrap-around ponytail even higher and pulled her luscious locks forward - in an almost half up half down style. We love it. Curls are essential for this look so try adding more depth and volume with hair extensions to match. 

It’s her signature look and one of our favourite celebrity hairstyles of all time, and Ariana proves that the wrap-around pony can go from day to night. She’s even been spotted with it as she grabs coffee, performs on stage, goes shopping and on chat shows. And if you’re wondering just how on earth she gets that shine, it’s down to a dedicated hair care routine so get investing!

Just because it’s a wrap-around ponytail doesn’t mean you have to follow a certain trend. Earlier this year, Jourdan proved that anyone can put their own mark on the hairstyle - whether you have straight, wavy or curly hair. Instead of wrapping her high pony with a straight piece of hair, Jourdan chose a micro-braided high ponytail wrapped with some beautiful braids. We’ve even put together a step-by-step guide to help you to create three different braids

We couldn’t not mention Kylie and Kourtney without giving Kim K some limelight too. After all, she often wows us with her hair and fashion choices - and at the start of 2021, it was no different. Just like her sisters, she opted for a 1960s look with a sleek ponytail having a small flick at the bottom. She also pulled the ponytail ends across her shoulders - giving off a feminine style that we were desperate to recreate at home. Of course, once you’ve finished with your wrap-around ponytail, aftercare of your hair is just as important. Our hair extension remover will ensure your hair stays soft, glossy and full of life - making your next hairstyle look even better. 

J.Lo’s hair is always making us envious and her wrap-around ponytail is no different. It’s full, characterful and has a gloss on it like no other which, if you’re asking us, has been created with the helping hand of remy hair extensions or a clip-in hair piece
