1.  Form a ponytail with a typical elastic (thread-wrapped) hair tie.  Apply hair spray BEFORE placing your DesignerTail, to keep the leather beautiful. 

2.  Flare open & Place it over top of the elastic hair tie, to cover it.  (You may open cuff to flat position - but not beyond flat, as it would damage the steel spring.  

3.  Squeeze cuff firmly to attach its Velcro to your elastic tie.  This creates a secure hold. DesignerTail will self-adjust.

Then - Go!  Simple!!!  No mirrors needed!  No adjusting products behind your head.

Your cuff is genuine leather.  Take care of it as you would your fine leather purses or shoes and it will last well beyond 5 years!  Enjoy!
