    1. You can wrap your locks around one of these hair doughnuts to get a sleek and voluminous bun!

    Amazon / Via

    You can easily fan your ponytail around the sleek design – these actually work best with super fine hair, as you won't have too many excess strands to wrap around the base! They also come in three different sizes so you can make a large, medium, or small bun to suit your mood.

    Price: £6.99 for a pack of three.

    2. This foldable hairband will make your ponytail look way thicker than it actually is!

    Amazon / Via

    You just have to feed your hair through this silicone band, ponytail-style, and flatten it down to create a wider and thicker-looking pony. The silicone material not only helps to secure it into place but it also won't tug at or damage your hair!

    Price: £3.28 for a pack of three.

    3. This highly-rated sea salt spray will give you the mermaid waves you've always wanted.
