Getting your ponytail just right every time depends on a lot of things, but the most important of all is the placement you choose. So, to help you figure out the right position for your next pony, we have a few simple styling tips below.

High ponytails

High ponies are full of movement and create a rebellious yet playful look. They work with every texture and can be styled to look casual or dressed up. For optimum movement, secure a high ponytail at the crown of your head, right where your hair part begins.

To keep your pony in place all day long, prop it up underneath with a couple of bobby pins slid diagonally into the elastic.

Mid-height ponytails

If it's a cute, girly look you want, it's a cute girly look you'll get with a mid-height ponytail. Secure it level with your eyes or your temples for plenty of bounce, and curl the ends for maximum movement.

To prevent flyaways, mist your finished pony with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray. To tack down any stubborn wisps, spritz an old toothbrush and run it over the problem areas.

Low ponytails

Low ponytails are all about effortless chic, whether you're going to work, grabbing brunch or getting dressed up for a night out. Whatever your plans, tie your pony just above the nape of your neck for a chic look that won't budge.

To add shine, apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Spray throughout before gathering your hair into a pony.
