Which ponytail gets your vote?

We love ponytail hairstyles because they're versatile, they're pretty, and for Spring 2015, they're right on trend. Long, low ponytails are especially prominent right now and there are a whole bunch of different ways to wear them.

The braided and sleek styles above are two of our favorite takes on the look, but the question is, which one would you wear?

Braided ponytail

Braided ponytails are basically just regular ponytails with a little extra detail. They also give you more control over your mane which makes them perfect for workouts or any time you need to keep your hair up and under control.

Styling tip

To get a subtly disheveled finish, spray your completed ponytail with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray, then roll the braid between your palms.

Sleek ponytail

A sleek ponytail is a hairstyle you can wear for any occasion from a job interview to a night out. It's polished yet understated so it goes with anything and it's a really chic way to keep long hair in check.

Styling tip

Apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream to damp hair before blow-drying. The cream smooths the cuticles as your hair dries, leaving you with soft, fuzz-free locks.

What do you think? Which ponytail hairstyle is your favorite?
