The point of getting weave-in hair extensions is to bring your hair to life with styling options aplenty. You can go from short to long, curly to straight and change your entire look completely with weave-in hair extensions. However, keep in mind that there are some styles that you cannot do with extensions, and depending on the application of the weave, a ponytail may be one of them.
Type of Weave
Depending on the type of weave you've got, you may be able to wrangle it into a ponytail style. For example, if you've got a quick weave ponytail, then this style is what the weave is for. If you've got a bonded weave style, then depending on the placement of the tracks, you may be able to at least pull your hair into a cute low style. However, if you've got a sewn-in weave and your tracks are close to the hairline, you may find that pulling your hair into a ponytail gives away your secret.
If you are going to gather your hair into a ponytail, you may want to keep a few tips in mind. Make sure you leave a few pieces of hair loose, so that your weave isn't obvious. Also, wind your hair into a fairly loose ponytail, so that you don't pull on the weave causing your extension tracks to pull out, leaving you with dangling extensions.
There may be nothing less cute than seeing someone with her hair in a ponytail with all of her tracks showing. Yes, people might already know that you have extensions, but it shouldn't be because they see the actual tracks of hair glued or sewn to your scalp.
If you know you will want to pull your hair back, consult with your hair stylist before you get extensions. Ask her the best hair type and application method for you, so that your extensions are not so obvious when you pull your hair back into a ponytail. Also, if you frequently wear your hair up, then go with a quick weave ponytail instead, which allows you to slick back your natural hair and wrap a weave made to look like a ponytail around it.
