Tired of leaving your hair open or keeping it tied in the same old boring ponytail? Try any one of the following hairstyles to add a bit of spunk to the regular ponytail.
Top 8 Ponytail Hairstyles
The Elastic Hair
Pull all your hair together into a low ponytail, but keep one thick strand of hair outside the ponytail. Tie the ponytail with a regular rubber band. Now take the extra strand of hair and twist it around the rubber band which is holding the pony together.
Pull the last one inch of the strand through the rubber band. Secure it properly with bobby pins. This will give the illusion that your ponytail is held together with a strand of hair twisted around it.
In this you divide the hair into sections horizontally. Take the upper portion and secure it into a ponytail with the help of a rubber band or accessorize it with an oversized barrette.
Add a twist to this simple hairstyle by adding the cheerleader affect where you tie the upper section of the hair in a very high ponytail.
Part your hair sideways and slick your bangs on to one side. Now tie your hair into a low ponytail on the same side as your bangs.
Use a curling iron to curl the ponytail hair to add a glamorous look to it. Let some lose tendrils of hair fall on the face. This softens the overall appearance.
The easiest and cutest ponytail hairstyle that you can try is the pig tails. In this you have to part your hair down the middle from the front to all the way to the back. This will basically divide your hair into two sections.
Tie each section low, near to the neck and put them affront, to let them fall down the chest. Secure all the lose hair with bobby pins. This is a hairstyle that can be tried with both long hair and short bobs.
To try this hairstyle, first you need to add texture to it. So work in some leave-in conditioner along with some mousse to add the required texture. With the help of a hairbrush, buff up the hair in the front to create a voluminous effect.
Now tie the hair into a high ponytail. Secure all the free hair with bobby pins. If you don’t have straight hair, then get the look with the help of a straightening iron.
An exciting new way to wear your pony is by braiding it up. Tie your hair into a ponytail in the centre of your head and then plait it into a thick braid. So here you will have a ponytail in the style of a braid.
If you don’t wish to braid your ponytail, then try doing this hairstyle vice-versa. Plait all your hair into thin braids and make a ponytail out of them.
Divide your hair into two sections horizontally. Take the upper section and tie it into a low ponytail.
Take the lower section of your hair along with the ponytail and tie it into a messy bun. This hairstyle is bound to get you noticed as it is drastically different from a regular ponytail.
If you don’t wish to change the simple ponytail much, then you can add the twist by just accessorising it with shiny bobby clips or with three different coloured ponytail holders tied together. You can also tie a satin ribbon on it.
