With the new year it is always fun to try new things with hair and makeup in addition to New Year resolutions. Since I am not ready to try a new color I went with a new hairstyle that is out of the norm for me :) I usually always have my hair down or in some sort of side braid where I can pull it in front so having my hair all the way up is rare! Today I'm showing you how to do this bubble pony tail…
1. Pull your hair up into a ponytail at the crown of your head and tie it off with a thick elastic so it stays in place. I use these from Sally Beauty.
2. Softly tease your hair with a brush or comb - I used my Wet Brush found here.
3. Tie a clear elastic around the pony tail about two to three inches down and pull on the bubble to make it stand out more.
4. Continue to make as many "bubbles" as your hair can handle and you are done!
Sally Beauty is challenging people to try something new - whether it is new lip stick, new hair color, whatever! If you share your new look you will be entered in a sweepstakes with a chance to win a trip to New York where you will get a makeover by a TV stylist. To enter just upload a picture of your new look to the Sally Beauty Facebook page and fill out the entry form OR upload your picture to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #SallyBeautyChallenge

Did you wrap the hair around with a bobby pin?
Would love to see a video on this!
Cute! Do you use hair from each bubble section to hide the elastics? If so, how do you secure the pieces covering the elastics?
Hi Amber I loove love love your blog!
Would you mind sharing tips on how you travel with your baby?
Also I was curious, apart from your blog, what is your occupation? How do you afford your lifestyle.
It would be a dream for me to travel with my husband and soon to be baby.
Thanks in advance!
Where is the Shirt from?
I love the bubble pony! I usually do mine a different way, but I like how this looks!
I’m not sure if you’ve covered this already but I would love to see an example of how you wear your extensions in a ponytail.. I always have the hardest time keeping them from showing or leaving weird bumps in my hair!
Love this! I’m gonna have to give it a try 🙂
Amber nice hairstyle!
Cute and different look 🙂
OMG, this is amazing and I will differently try is out.
Great review and thanks for sharing.
Love this hairstyle!
Lovely. I need to try it.
This is a super cute style! I love how unique it is! I am with you on being ready for a change though. Sometimes I just got bored with my hair, but I am too chicken to switch it up ha!

I LOVE how your hair looks like this! All of your hair tutorials make me want to get your extensions. <3
Love this hair style! It’s super cute~
Ooh, this look is so fun! I will have to try this out and see if it’s something that I can pull off!
Adorable! You are so darn talented, my hair would look like a disaster if I tried this. In all honesty I don’t think its long enough yet, but I am doing my best to let it grow! Thanks for the inspiration.
I need to try some different hairstyles too! Definitely boring with that so I opted to try adding some color!
Love it! Do you use your hair from the previous “bubble” to wrap the elastics with???

The hairsyle is so prety!
I love the new style!! I can’t wait to try it out. My hair is in a pony so much now that we have a little guy who likes to pull mine out. So I am always looking for new ways to jazz up the pony.
I love this bubble pony, but I don’t think my hair is quite long enough to make it count!
I love it!
