Even though we talk about them all the time here at, we can't help but fall in love with ponytails every time we see a new one, or even just a really good version of an old one... like this 90s-inspired high side pony.

If you want to try it on your own locks, just follow the tutorial below!

Get the look

Step one
Use a volume-enhancing shampoo and conditioner to get the big-hair ball rolling in the shower. Then, after towel-drying, apply L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse throughout, using a comb to rake it through for even coverage.

Step two
Blow-dry your hair in sections, using a paddle brush to guide it straight. When it's almost dry, flip your head upside down and blast the roots to add lift as you finish the blowout.

Step three
If you feel like your mane could use one last pick-me-up, apply Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray and tease at the root. Hold the hair up and tease from behind, then gently smooth it back over.

Step four
Sweep all of your hair up into a high pony, taking care not to pull it too tightly in order to preserve all that volume you just created. Flip it to one side then tighten just a little bit.

Step five
Finish with a veil of hairspray and a big ol' scrunchie if you're in a real 90s mood!

What do you think? Will you be rocking an XXL side pony any time soon?
