Ponytails have been much talked about on this site of late, and for good reason: they're ETERNALLY on-trend. In fact, they might just be the best, most useful hairstyles ever! What makes them so fantastic is their sheer versatility. With the right styling techniques, you can turn your trademark pony into what might be considered a work of art (by someone... somewhere).

Above, you'll find a gallery of five simple yet beautiful looks that are very chic and can be worn everywhere from the gym to the boardroom via the supermarket. Like we said, ponies are versatile.


Not champagne, not things kids/clowns play with, not an Absolutely Fabulous character, but a ponytail! Yes, that's right, a bubble ponytail. Bubbles are fun and ponies are great so why not merge the two and get yourself a playfully pretty hairstyle to enjoy? The trick is to flat iron your hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray first to create a smooth, grown-up texture.

How low can you go?

Next up, we have the low pony. A look such as this works wonders for absolutely every hair texture and is also a great option for anyone with medium or short hair. This is purely because you don't have to figure out how to pin and spray your hair up into a higher pony.


Those of you who hit the gym on a regular basis will know that a pony can look great with a headband during a workout, but did you consider how a similarly accessorized 'do might work in the real world? Whether minimalism is what you crave, or you prefer something with plenty of texture, throw a pretty headband into the mix and see what happens! FYI, floral pieces are perfect for spring.

Vintage va va voom

Anyone who likes to add a little retro flair to their look should try a beehive pony. With plenty of height above the pony, it's a hairstyle which harks back to the swinging sixties, almost daring you to team it with some wildly intense eye makeup. To get the look, tease the layers at the back after applying Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray. Smooth over and gather into a low pony.

Super sleek

Last but not least we have the shiniest, sleekest ponytail of them all. Complete with slick side part and secured tightly, this style is perfect if you're in need of a look that lasts. Smoothed down with plenty of hairspray to tackle flyaways, this pony isn't going anywhere.

Which one do you like best?
