Example #5 ~ Poofy ponytail (with foamcore)
So far, I've covered short ponytails, odango / hairbuns, and thin, long ponytails in my tutorials. Next up is a variant that is very popular in anime cosplay: The long, incredibly thick, "poofy" ponytail.
You'll need to work with foamcore to add extra volume to the base of the ponytail. Wig fiber alone just doesn't do the trick.
The basic idea is to follow the high ponytail tutorial
until the end / step 21 (including stubbing the wig and cutting/shaving off the short ponytail), then attach to that ponytail stub a hairpiece consisting of sealed extensions or wefts on a foamcore base.

Awesome! I was wondering if you were going to do this kind of ponytail as a tutorial, it's very helpful. Thanks!
