The Christy fits right over your own ponytail and gives you instant length. To use it, simply create a ponytail and secure it with an elastic band. Then grab the Christy and place it on top of your ponytail. At the base of the ponytail, insert the comb that is attached to the Christy above the elastic band so that the Christy does not slip off your ponytail. Then wrap the extra piece of hair around the base of your ponytail (to cover the elastic band) and secure the end with bobby pins or an accessory of your choice!
