Whether you are looking for a cool hairstyle for the weekend or a chic hairdo for a party, you can wear a bubble ponytail just about anywhere!

This style of ponytail works best with long hair, whether straight, wavy or curly. In fact, it is also a very practical hairstyle for keeping hair off your face and preventing it from getting entangled!

We saw many variants of the bubble ponytail on Fashion Week runways this season and our very own L'Oréal Spokesmodel Blake Lively has sported this cool hairstyle on several occasions!

You can try out a sleek and polished bubble pony for a soiree or create a tousled, messy version for running errands or hanging out with friends.

To create a sleek bubble ponytail, you'll need:

- A hairstyling gel

- A fine toothed comb

- Hair elastics (5-6)

- A fine-hold hairspray

1/ Step one

Work in a small quantity of hair styling gel along the lengths of your hair to add shine to your strands.

2/ Step two

Comb your hair to detangle knots and gather it at the back of your head to make a ponytail; secure the pony with an elastic.

3/ Step three

Brush your ponytail and tie more elastics along its length at 1-inch intervals. This will give you a bubble effect.

4/ Step four

Spritz your hair with some hairspray to tame flyways and lend your hairstyle a perfectly smooth polish.

5/ Alternative styling options:

1. Make one large bubble instead of multiple ones.

2. Make a messy bubble pony for a more easy-going style.

Replace the styling gel with a strand-smoother serum spray and mist your hair thoroughly with the product to make your tresses smooth and shiny. Instead of using a comb, rake your hair up with your fingers and tie it into a high ponytail; secure it with an elastic. Tie more elastics along the length of your pony at 1" intervals and tug at bubble sections to create a loose, messy style.

Have fun with your brand new ponytail hairstyle!
