Don’t believe us, try a few of these ponytail ideas and you will be thanking us!

1. Textured crimp: 

Spray on a voluminous product on damp hair and blow-dry it using cool air by bending forward so there is major drama and volume in your hair. Make a ponytail at the nape and secure with an elastic. Wrap a strand of air around the elastic. For added interest, you could even braid this strand that covers the elastic. Gently pull a tuft of air to create a raised bump immediately above the ponytail. Now using a hair crimper, texturize some strand of your ponytail. Don’t crimp all the hair – the effect is best when you crimp only a few strands.Hairstyles for long hair 84

2. Romantic side-parting ponytail: 

Part your hair on the side, then brush it into a sleek mid-level ponytail. Pull a piece of your hair around the elastic to conceal it and secure it with bobby pins or decorative hair accessories for glamorizing the look even moreHairstyles for long hair 85
