There are three different kinds of people in the quarantine beauty realm.

The first continues doing everything the same way they usually would to retain some sense of normalcy. I am not this person nor do I understand them in the slightest, but I can respect the hustle.

The second is the one we’ve heard so much about — this is the person who seizes this moment of isolation to experiment with drastic new looks, like Hilary Duff dying her hair blue or Cole Sprouse growing despicable facial hair. If it goes right, it’s a bomb new Instagram post. If it goes wrong, who needs to know?

The third is a real “back to nature” approach. These people stopped using heat on their hair, shed their manicures and kept their faces makeup-free in hopes of using this time indoors to pamper themselves and return to a more natural look.

If you’re that third person — or the second person looking for a daring new style to try — check out these incredible ponytail extensions from Insert Name Here to update your look without using any heat or dye.

Also known as the “cheer pony,” these extensions come graciously pre-styled with bouncy curls so you never have to use heat on your own hair. Just put your hair in a bun and use the claw clip to secure the extensions in place. The pony is available in seven natural hair colors.

This silky, long ponytail comes in five limited edition rainbow colors and is perfect for the person looking for a drastic change they don’t have to commit to. This particular ponytail is heat resistant, unlike the others, so you could curl it if you wanted to — but it’s not recommended.

In The Know video producer AmiLin McClure, who tried all three looks in the video above, recommends using a sturdy hair tie or a second hair tie so that your pony stays high and the extensions stay secure.
