The Low Ponytail
This classic style is the perfect go-to for a quick and easy look. It's also versatile enough to be dressed up or down, making it perfect for any occasion.
To create this look, simply pull your hair back into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck. You can leave it loose and natural or add some waves for a bit of texture.
The High Ponytail
For a fun and flirty look, try a high ponytail. This style is great for showing off your features and is perfect for a night out on the town.
Gather your hair at the crown of your head and secure it with an elastic band to create this look. Then, brush the remaining hair. That’s it!
The Messy Ponytail with Front Fringes
It is a great style for those with short or medium-length hair. It's easy to do and only takes a few minutes. Simply gather your hair into a ponytail at the crown of your head, leaving some front fringe out.
If you want, you can curl the fringe for added volume. Then, take a section of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the hair tie to hide it. Secure with a bobby pin, and voila! You're done.
The Braided Crown Ponytail
This pretty style is perfect for special occasions or days when you want to feel extra glam. It's also quite simple to do. Start by parting your hair down the middle and creating two equal sections. Then, take one area and French braid it towards the back of your head. Repeat with the other section.
Once both braids are complete, gather them into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck and secure them with an elastic.
Gently tug at the braids to loosen them up and give them a more casual look. Add some curls to the ends if you like, and you're all set!
The Fishtail Braid Ponytail
This style is perfect for those with long, thick hair. It looks complicated, but it's quite easy to do once you get the hang of it. Start by gathering your hair into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck.
Then, divide the ponytail into two even sections. Take a small piece of hair from one side and cross it over to the other, adding it to that section. Then, take a small piece of hair from the other side and cross it over, adding it to the first section. Repeat these steps until you reach the ends of your hair. Secure with an elastic and gently tug the braid to loosen it up if desired. Add some waves or curls to the ends for a touch of glamor.
The Half-Up, Half-Down Style
This is a great go-to style for those days when you can't be bothered doing anything too fancy with your hair but still want to look put-together. It's quickest and easiest to do on second-day hair, but it can also be done on freshly-washed locks. Simply gather the top half of your hair into a high ponytail at the crown of your head and secure it with an elastic.
Then, remove a small section of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic to hide it before securing it with a bobby pin. Gently tug at pieces around your face for a soft, romantic look, and you're good to go!
The Top Knot Ponytail
This style is perfect for hot summer days when you want all your hair off your face but doesn't want to deal with sweaty strands sticking to your neck or face throughout the day. It's also super quick and easy to do—perfect for those mornings when you snooze too many times! Start by gathering your hair into a high ponytail at the crown of your head and securing it with an elastic.
Then, simply twist your hair until it forms a tight coil on top of your head before wrapping another elastic around it to secure it. Voila! You've got yourself a chic top knot in under 5 minutes flat!
Ponytails are one of the most versatile hairstyles—they can be worn both formally and informally for work or play, day or night!
