How to Make a Clip-on Ponytail by Katsumiyo How to Make a Clip-on Ponytail by Katsumiyo
Here is my tutorial on how to make a clip-on ponytail. This method looks best for either stubbed wigs or short wigs that end near the natural hairline. If you have any questions or need me to clarify something, post a comment or send me a note and I'll be happy to get back to you.
Here is what the inside of the clip looks like:

And the top:

Pretty much exactly like you'll find in stores:

Would something like this help with making a wig into a ponytail? I'm making a Megura cosplay from Disney Hercules. And I need to find a way to turn a wig into a ponytail.

This tutorial is really about making a ponytail from spare wefts. I would recommend Kukkii's tutorial on making a wig into a ponytail. www.cosplay.com/photo/1856065/

Can I buy a long wife and cut it short and make my own wefts? Also, is it possible to add a hairpiece similar to Korra's from The Legend of Korra?

You can make your own wefts, but it is very complicated and extremely messy. I don't know what Korra's hair looks like very well. You could use bobby pins or something to pin up the strands to make those loop things, but I do not advise connecting them permanently to the ponytail. Your wig will be almost impossible to store that way.

How well do clip on ponytails actually work? I've never tried to do one, this is the first I've seen of them to be honest. I tried just pulling the wig into a high ponytail and it just does not stay put throughout a whole day and the only other thing I had seen other than this was putting in a fake one over a bit a foam. I'm not too keen on that idea.

I guess I'm confused by what you mean by work? The clips are latched into the wefts and tracks on the wig, so unless you make a ponytail so huge that the wig sags, it should stay put all day. It's definitely the easiest method to make a ponytail with, too, since you don't need to alter the base wig to make one.
