Which braided pony gets your vote?

Braided ponytails are great for all kinds of occasions, whether there's a red carpet or a yoga mat beneath your feet. L'Oréal Paris spokesperson Blake Lively makes an especially good case for the look, with both a regular and fishtail style. The question is, which one gets your vote?

Easy chic

A loose, airy braid will look gorgeous on anyone and will go with just about any outfit. On top of that, it's a really easy hairstyle to recreate, even if your braiding skills are a little rusty. The messier you make it, the more glamorously disheveled the end result will be!

Styling tip - To get a good amount of volume in your ponytail before braiding it, mist it with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray and gently tease the hair with a fine-tooth comb.

All in the details

A fishtail technique will give you a more intricate finish, due to the finer herringbone structure. While it may appear more complicated than a regular three-strand braid, a fishtail is actually pretty easy once you have the method down pat.

Styling tip - For extra grip when braiding, spray your hair with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray before you start.

What do you think? Which braided pony do you like best?
