Is there any style more versatile than a ponytail? We don’t think so! Ponytails can be fun, functional, flirty, or fabulous. And with summer here, what better time to get your hair up and rock your favorite pony?
Need some ideas? We have ponytails for every occasion!
Straight and Sleek
A straight, sleek ponytail is amazing for both professional meetings and date night. You’ll look perfectly put together without a ton of effort. If you don’t have naturally straight hair, you’ll need to straighten it first, so don’t forget to use a heat protectant spray. Be sure to tame any flyaways with hairspray or gel.
For an eye-catching twist, try a balloon ponytail. After you’ve secured your first hair elastic, add another every two inches for the length of your ponytail. Then, use your fingers to pull the hair between each section to the sides. You’ll end up with a lovely look that shows off your fun personality wherever you go.
Looking for a glamorous style for your next soirée? Take a page out of Ariana Grande’s book and create a high, tight pony. Add retro vibes by flipping the ends out. Wispy bangs swept to the side bring an extra touch of glamor to this style.
Romantic Braided Ponytail
Want to show off your romantic side? A romantic braided ponytail is perfect. To start, create a loose braid down the side of your head. Then, make a ponytail at the nape of your neck with your remaining hair. Wrap the braid around your elastic, and pin it into place. Finally, pull sections of the braid loose to create a slightly messy, romantic effect.
Naturally Curly Ponytail
If you have natural curls, a ponytail is a fabulous way to show them off. You’ll want to add plenty of curl defining cream before you start so your curls look their best. Bring your curls into a super-high ponytail at the crown of your head, and wrap a section around the hair elastic to cover it. Your curls will fall beautifully around your face. Don’t forget to set the look with finishing spray. You’ll have a beautiful style that’s equally at home in the office or at the club.
Accessories can make all the difference in the vibe your ponytail sends out. Choose a simple ribbon or scarf to tie around your ponytail for an instantly sophisticated look. Add barrettes covered in pearls or gems for a glamorous style. Flowers create a beautiful boho effect. Or choose fun, colorful accessories to show off your playful side.
You don’t have to miss out on all the ponytail fun if you have short hair. In fact, short ponytails look amazing. Try a loose, textured ponytail for a lovely effect. Or opt for a tighter, low ponytail for a more serious style that’s perfect for business meetings.
There’s a reason the classic cheerleader ponytail has been popular for decades. It’s cute, fun, and functional. So whether you’re running a marathon, hitting the gym, or hanging out at the beach, a classic cheerleader ponytail is a perfect fit. Just pull your hair into a tight ponytail at the back of your head, and you’re ready for your day. Add a scarf or bow if you want to emphasize your playful side.
