    Default This style - real or fake hair?

    I came across this picture of a sort of Grecian ponytail style:



    ...and am now wondering how this style is done. See, I love it, but if you look closely, it appears to be tied with hair rather than hair ties. I can't figure out how that would be possible. Perhaps they are fake hair pieces? Can somebody else figure this one out? xD

    However it works, when my hair is long enough I'm totally gonna wear it like this.

    Simply amazing. I would have to bet there has to be something fake in there, right? Her hair looks amazingly thick, too. My hair is too thin to ever work with this style.

    Seems the ties are made with the lower portion of hair. Note that it is wrapped loosely, and likely held with lots of pins (that we of course cannot see ).

    That so looks fake to me, but then again, I could not imagine having that much hair. Dianyla could probably do that!

    http://www.scunci.com/product_detail...11&pid=30&lp=3 <- tool to make your hair wrap about your ponytail. If you had enough hair you could do that hair style with your own hair using that tool.

    She probably has elastics of some sort anchoring each hair wrap, fwiw.

    THAT is some gorgeous inspiration regardless of whether it's fake or not.

    I say that is fake, but it looks great.

    I'd be willing to bet that some of it is fake, but that you'd still have to have quite a bit of hair in the first place to do it.

    So basically it starts as a half up pony tail. Some faux hair clip spreads out the natural hair over something beneath to give more volume. Perhaps the rings that appear to be holding this part are part of the clip or the person's real hair; I suppose it depends on how much hair you actually have on what a person attempting this style would do.

    So now you have a half up pony held with an intricate clip. The most logical way I can see the rest of it done is that the hair beneath the stuff in the pony is now bound with something that has a long lenth of faux hair attatched. This faux hair is brought around the real hair, and back under. It goes up between the two sections of real hair, and then around twice, and tied off. (Or at least this is how I interpret the style to have been done)

    I suppose this could be done if you had a great deal of real hair to be used, but most likely in the pic faux hair is used.

    It's a beautiful picture, but it's likely that some of the hair used won't be the model's.
