*wonders if this will post*
We all know that the key to a flat, believable install is the foundation. So, why pay someone upwards of $900 or bid on an appointment (WTF ) for something you can do yourself? I self install and this is the pattern that I use.
The key to a flawless ponytail (imo) is the health of your perimeter leave out. If you have sparse edges or short/broken nape hairs, it's not going to work...PERIOD. Restore that area with nightly massages using a mix of carrier and essential oils that promote hair growth (ie. almond oil, castor oil, jbco, rosemary, jojoba, coconut...)
Anyway, here's the pic. DO NOT LAUGH! Ya'll know I draw these things just for you guys.
