Ariana Grande Uses These Exact Hair Ties To Keep Her Signature Pony In Place
Thick-haired ladies, rejoice!
It’s rare to see Ariana Grande without her hair slicked back in a GIANT ponytail, and at this stage she’s got the style down to a fine art.
As any ponytail aficionado will know, you can’t just use any hair tie if you want your pony to actually stay in place – especially if you’re on stage in front of a crowd of thousands.
So how does Ariana avoid ponytail slippage? According to her hair stylist Aaron Light, the singer uses a very specific type of hair tie for extra grip and hold: a bungee band.
These bands have a hooked grip, meaning they can be wrapped and unwrapped without pulling the hair. Plus, they are perfect for keeping thick locks in place.
“I love using bungees, especially on clients with thick hair, because you have more control over the hair and can achieve a very tight and secure ponytail,” Aaron told Allure.
“Regular hair bands have a tendency to slip, where bungees really stay put at the base.”
Aaron favours Smoothie Bungee Bands, which retail around €6 for a pack of three and can be purchased on Amazon. Alternatively, you can buy bungee bands from an Irish stockist here, €2.99 for a pack of four.
While we’re loving the idea of a more secure ponytail, we’re not sure about Ariana’s other hair hack – cutting holes in her baseball caps so her hair can fit through:

We’ll stick to hat-free looks for now, thanks.
