The best way to get your ponytail in instead of trying to fight with all the hair at the back is lean forward and brush all your hair down to your face. Bring all of the hair from the back forward. Once you have done this then you can gather all of your hair in one bunch and apply the holder that you are going to be using.
Suit Your Hair Type: Your hairstyle must not only suit your face but also suit your type of hair. For example, a regular hairstyle might not work out well with curly hair. Similarly, different densities of hair might also suit different hairstyles.
