This summer, sport a chic ponytail hairstyle with your beautiful, long hair!
Everyone loves a good ponytail, not only because it is easy, no-fuss and young-looking, but also because this effective hairstyle can keep us cool in summer and keep long hair from getting in the way of work. With some creative ideas, ponytail hairstyles could become totally different and eye-catching. Ponytails can be braided, worn with one on each side or worn with just one – basically the sky is the limit when it comes to upgrading your ponytail from gym staple to style essential.
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.
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 more
3. Bubble Pony:
Channel your inner Princess Jasmine with this hairstyle. Brush your hair up into a high ponytail, and secure it with an elastic. Then tie hair elastics two inches apart from top to bottom, and gently pull on the sections to loosen them up.
4. Braided ponytail:
5. Secure it sky high:
Ace the glam diva look with a super straight—and long—high pony. Ensure you run shine serum and spray through your hair before and after making the ponytail.
Pump up the volume at the crown and let a few side pieces free- voila!
7. Knotted Ponytail:
