A ponytail is a classic fallback hairstyle. Whether we're dealing with a bad hair day, headed to the gym, scooting to work, running errands or gracing a holiday season party, there's always a ponytail to keep up with our style aspirations. Ponytails look good on all of us, no matter what our age or our face shape. They keep pesky loose strands off our face and back and can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion and of course, our mood!
Here are the some of the best ponytails that you can wear anywhere and everywhere:
Sleek ponytail with a side part
From being an everyday fixture to a neat and chic hairstyle for glam events, a sleek ponytail worn with a side part can instantly upgrade our style quotient. Keep the hair part sharp and smooth and spritz your tresses with some strand-smoother serum spray to lend your ponytail a sleek, polished finish. While a side part looks good on all face shapes, a side-strung pony can transform a simple hairstyle to an incredible one.
Make your go-to ponytail hairstyle a little more exciting by tousling your hair before tying it up and lending your 'do a carefully disheveled finish. Work in a tiny amount of deconstruction gum through your hair to lend it better texture and hold, and secure it into a high-strung, tousled ponytail. Gently loosen the strands around your crown and at the back of your head to create an effortlessly chic hairstyle that's fit for all occasions – formal and casual.
A classic low ponytail can be whatever you want it to be – simple and low-key, glitzy and glamorous or something in between. You can create it with any texture of hair – straight, wavy or curly, and pull it off just about anywhere – at work, on a date, on a night-out with friends, at a wedding and of course at home! Before securing your hair into a pony, work in a tiny amount of frizz removing cream through your strands to lock out humidity, tame flyaways and lend a silky smooth and polished finish to your hairstyle.
Slick, wet look ponytail
Slick, wet look ponytails work for two reasons; one, the styling gel used to lend a glossy finish to our mane, keeps our strands lubricated and protected from the harsh, cold weather, and two, it tames flyaways and lends our hairstyle and ultra-polished finish, with every strand of hair in place. Besides, it looks super glamorous too and shows the fashionable side of our personality!
While creating a slick, wet look pony, start with just a tiny amount of pliable styling gel and use more if required. This will prevent your strands from looking super greasy. If you're not into ultra-glossy looks, just dab a tiny amount of styling gel on your top hair after you're created your pony to smooth out flyaways and lend a soft, muted shine to your hairstyle.
