No matter how many styles of buns and braids we can create, we always go back to a ponytail for a quick and easy hairstyle. Ponytails come in many varieties – from high-slung ones to low, sleek ones – so you never run out of ideas while tying up your hair!
Sleek Low Ponytail
Transform your pony from an everyday fixture to a glam hairstyle that you can sport to work as well as to a cocktail party. Spritz some strand-smoother serum spray on your hair and comb it thoroughly to make it smooth, soft and tangle-free. The product will also lend a subtle shine to the strands, making them look glossy and vibrant, but not greasy. Gather all your hair at the nape of your neck and secure it with elastic to make a sleek low ponytail.
This hairstyle literally takes 2 minutes to create and is therefore a perfect for times when you're racing against the clock. To make your ponytail look extra stylish, wear it with a side part and let your face framing hair sections contour your forehead beautifully. For an ultra-polished finish, slick flyways and cowlicks with some clean styling gel or a fine control hairspray.
This pony works best with shoulder-length to long hair of all textures.
Voluminous High Ponytail
When you're in the mood to have fun with your hair and make your go-to hairstyle a tad more exciting, a voluminous high ponytail won't disappoint you. To add extra volume to your regular high pony, spritz some high-lift creation hairspray on the roots around your crown and comb your hair with a boar bristle hairbrush; lift your hair strands as you work the product in with your fingers. Using a fine-toothed comb, gently tease the under layers of your hair around the crown by back brushing and smooth over the top layers to conceal the teased section. Next, flip your head forward, gather all your hair at the back of your head and secure with elastic. Using your fingers, loosen your hair around the crown and towards the back to produce an effortlessly chic and voluminous effect.
You can create this hairstyle in 5 minutes flat with medium-length detangled hair of any texture and wear it to work, to a party or a night out on the town.
French Braid Ponytail
An interesting way to add beautiful, intricate details to your regular pony hairstyle is by pairing it with a French braid. Creating a French braid ponytail is easier than it looks and does not take more than 10 minutes to create.
To create this ponytail, apply some frizz remover cream through your hair to detangle knots and make your tresses look soft, shiny and healthy. Comb your hair thoroughly and make a French braid starting at the crown of your head, all the way to the nape of your neck; secure the end with elastic and there – you have a French braid pony!
Create this beautiful ponytail hairstyle with medium-length to long hair and wear it to the workplace, for window-shopping with friends or on a date night with a special someone!
