How To Measure Your Ponytail?

Back to FAQs

The reason we want you to measure your ponytail is to determine your hair thickness in an objective way. This helps us figure out which Strongband can provide the perfect fit for you and your goals.

Steps to measure your Ponytail:

1. Put your hair into a tight ponytail - as condensed as possible.

2. Take a cotton string around the circumference, mark the point where the string touches itself.

3. Put the string against a ruler or measuring tape.

Remember the measurement in inches. 

Thin hair is usually under 2 inches in circumference.

Medium hair is usually between 2 inches and 4 inches.

Thick hair is usually over 4 inches.

With our many customers who have already wore Hairstrong these are the general measurements you can use to help with your decision for which hairstrong is perfect for your ponytail.

Nano Tough - less than 2.5 inches circumference.

Original - less than 4 inches in circumference.

Extra Tough - more than 4 inches in circumference
