How To Pony-O: Yoga
As women, we’ve all experienced those days that never seem to end: everyone is demanding our time, whether it’s at work, at school, or at home. This leaves us stressed, with very little time for ourselves. One of the best, and most effective forms of exercise for relaxing the mind and de-stressing the body is yoga.
When you’re pressed for time, and on your journey to zen, the last thing you want to mess with is your hair. When you’re in the middle of downward dog, or some tricky yoga pose, you don’t need a baggy, loose ponytail distracting you and falling in front of your face. How can you balance your body and mind when you’re constantly fussing with your ponytail? Plus, you’ll have a massive ponytail crease by the time you’re done. Weren’t we trying to de-stress??!?
Just breathe! That’s where Pony-O comes to the rescue!
The Pony-O is a patented, unique, and revolutionary hair accessory. Say bye-bye to saggy, annoying ponytails. The Pony-O will hold any hair type in a comfortable and secure ponytail that is perfect for yoga, and take you from Om to OhMyGod! You can go through a whole routine without having to adjust your style. And if hot yoga is your thing, the Pony-O is waterproof and sweatproof!
The Pony-O is a soft, malleable metal, coated in high-grade silicone. On the inside, there are tiny soft teeth that allow the Pony-O to have a solid grip without pulling or tearing the hair. And since you only shape the Pony-O on each end to secure it, there’s no feeding your hair back and forth…so NO MORE PONYTAIL CREASE!!!
Because of its revolutionary design, Pony-O is unlike any other hair accessory on the market. Pony-O is damage free and tension free, something you will never experience with ordinary hair ties. Fine hair looks thicker in the Pony-O. It holds curly hair like a dream, no more pulling on that one strand of hair. No more hair-covered elastics!! Thick hair feels weightless!
How to Achieve the Perfect Ponytail for Yoga
Pony-O is super easy to use! You’ll have a perfect ponytail in three, easy steps!
- Using only your thumb and pointer-finger, pull your hair through the Pony-O.
- Squeeze and flatten the Pony-O, holding it close to your head.
- Beach EACH END SEPARATELY to secure the Pony-O. (It is VERY important that you NOT bend the Pony-O once in the middle).
Any of these hairstyles are perfect for Yoga:
The low ponytail is super easy. It’s perfect for mat time, or any pose that requires laying on your back.
This is my favorite style, and my go-to style for yoga, or any activity. By feeding less than half of your hair through the Pony-O, then following the shaping steps above, you’ve solved every yoga/hair challenge. A shorter ponytail means less fuss (with no scissors involved), and more focus!
An awesome style for getting all of your hair up is the Twisted Knot. Twist all of your hair together and wrap into a knot. Secure it following the steps above. Super cute! Super easy!
These are just a few of the Pony-O styles that we love for yoga. Any style you can create with an elastic or plastic claw, you can create with Pony-O!
