The '80s pony is packing one serious punch right now. It's high; it's full, it flares out from the base. It's trending as the whale-spout pony. And everyone from Hailey Bieber to Kim Kardashian and Bella Hadid is showing us how it's done. But if you think it’s just for celebrities with perfect hair and round-the-clock stylists, we invite you to think again. Because even the very best A-listers have their little secret. And it’s called an Invisible Ponytail clip in.

So, even if your hair is fine, flat, frizzy, or just a wee bit short, you can work the whale-spout too. Simply follow these tips from our top Harvey Nichols stylists.

Step 1

Smooth 1-2 pumps of Almost Everything Cream into damp hair, then blow dry it smooth with a round brush.

Step 2

Use a mixed bristle brush ­like this to smooth the hair straight back from the face and tie it in a ponytail, right at the crown of your head. Leave a section at the front free, sweeping it behind one ear, to frame the face.

Step 3

Clip, wrap, Velcro and secure The Human Hair Invisible Ponytail onto your own ponytail. It adds instant fullness, to get that flared-out, whale-spout vibe. The neat thing about this one is that it’s 100% human hair – so looks 100% natural. And comes with an extra bit to wrap warp around the ponytail base, to keep it 100% pro.

Step 4

Rub one small pump of Almost Everything Cream into your hands and gently glide them over frizz. Tip: sling your cream into your hand or gym bag, and you can slay flyaways on-the-go.

Bonus Points Step 5

Don’t hold back on the ‘80s vibe. Tie a scrunchie around the base of your pony – and prepare to rock that whale-spout with pride.
