Accessories can make all the difference to a tried and true hairstyle like a ponytail. This season, adding detail to your go-to pony with a chic ribbon is becoming something of a mini-trend, and it also has a playful springtime feel which makes it perfect for the upcoming transitional months.

Why try this trend

A ribbon is an inexpensive, versatile accessory that can be easily woven into any hairstyle. You can tie it around the base of your pony, incorporate it into a braid or even create a headband. Ribbons also look great with every hair texture, so you can create many different looks with just one simple accessory.

How to wear it

1/ Low and sleek

Spritz dry hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray and straighten it in sections. Smooth all of your hair back off your face and tie or braid your ribbon into a pony as desired. Complete the look with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray.

2/ Disheveled

Starting with dry hair, mist it all over with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray, then muss and scrunch to add texture. Gather your hair back into a pony, tie your ribbon, and finish with Fine Control Hairspray.

3/ Tousled

Apply Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray to dry or damp hair and blow-dry it in twisted sections. Once dried, shake out the twists and style as desired. As above, complete your finished look with Fine Control Hairspray.
