I thought this was a pretty cool detail on a ponytail.
My plan was to use this at the beginning, and then braid it in a seven-stranded braid. According to my calculations, the small "neck" portion would be about 2/5th of my hair, so the ponytail part should be easily split into five.
Of course my mirror was right in the middle of it. Argh.
I'm not entirely sure what to think.
The positive: It has a fairly nice "lift" effect to keep the braid off my neck, it was fairly easy to do and felt really "firm" and secure.
The negative: I got some messiness from using the hair-lassoo and I screwed the seven-stranded braid up. Somehow along the line I managed to turn it into a five-stranded.
Notes for next time: Get the beginning part smooth and nice. Definitely braid it into a seven-stranded braid, just because it feels cooler.
