  • Jennifer Lopez, 'On the 6'<br />

The secret is to have enough hair in the pony for fullness; you can use <a href='/index.php/products/view/26' target='_parent'>Dry</a> and <a href='/index.php/products/view/2229' target='_parent'>Thick to</a> give more volume in the ponytail as needed.<br />
<br />
