It's so easy to achieve a sleek, volumized, and super long ponytail that flows down your back with a UniWigs ponytail hair extension. Amazing right? Yet not many people know about this genius hair hack!

Everybody's heard of hair extensions, but ponytail extensions are the simplest way to achieve an enviable ponytail hairstyle in just minutes. Unlike hair extensions, ponytail hair extensions are much less known about. Most ponytail hair extensions can be simply clipped into or wrapped around your own pony and secured into place.

These ultra-convenient hair extensions are perfect if you want a fuller or longer pony and don't want to wait around for your hair to grow. Ideal for those looking for Ariana-inspired high and gravity defying ponytails, as well as statement J.Lo bouncy and thick ponytails, UniWigs ponytail hair extensions are the way to go.

When it comes to us gals with black or darker colored hair, choosing the right ponytail hair extension is essential. Not only is support and security key, but also finding the right color match - so that your own hair blends in with your ponytail hair extension - super important.

So, let's get on to which ponytail hair extensions we recommend, how you can style your pony extension effectively, as well as how you can choose the right hair shade.

The Hair Ponytail Wrap

There are a few different types of ponytail hair extensions, but UniWigs ponytail hair extensions that are 'wrap around' are some of the simplest hair extensions there are to apply.

These wrap around hair extensions come with a small comb attached which can be easily inserted into your own pony, as well as Velcro fastening! They also come with extra hair attached that can be wrapped around the base of the pony to conceal any hair ties and wefts.

The Riley 20-inch wrap around synthetic ponytail hair extension is wrap around and perfect for easy application.

How to apply a wrap around ponytail

Applying a wrap around ponytail hair extension like this Riley ponytail extension is easy.

Things you'll need:
-Hairbrush or comb
-Hair ties
-Bobby pins

-Now, insert the small comb of the ponytail extension into the base of your bun
-Next, wrap the hair extension around your bun and secure the Velcro tightly around it

Need to match your own hair color?

There are a few ways to find the right ponytail extension color for you.
Firstly, going for a ponytail extension color that matches your own hair shade will enable a perfect blend, where no one will be able to guess you have an extension in.

If you want the ponytail extension to match your own hair flawlessly, there are a few ways to go about it. Browsing the UniWigs range of hair shades online seems like the quickest way to figure out which shade could match your hair. However different monitors and screens can have an effect on how each color looks.

UniWigs offers a helpful advice service for free to get your color matched. Simply email [email protected] with several photos of your hair in natural lighting from a few different angles, and we will be able to recommend your hair extension color match.

Additionally, for a more precise match, there is the option of shipping a small hair sample of your own hair to us so that we can look at it in person and recommend a color match.

Finally, you can order a hair color ring from and then compare the hair shades to your own hair to choose an extension color. Simply return the color ring when you're done to get a full refund.

Alternatively, you don't need to match your own hair precisely to your ponytail hair extension. Although a precise match offers the convenience of a smooth blend, going for a similar hair shade can be just as good.
