Ponytails are awesome! They suit all women and keep hair off the face and neck. High, low, sleek or messy, there are so many ways to wear a pony! Here are four alternative ponytail styles that you can try to give your average hairdo a chic upgrade:

Bouffant Pony

An easy solution to upgrade your ponytail is to give it a retro twist. Making a bouffant ponytail, like the one in the image above, is easier than it looks. Tease your hair around the crown, spritz it with a generous amount of hairspray to set the shape of the bouffant and secure all your hair at the nape of your neck in a ponytail. To hide the elastic, take a large strand of hair from your pony, wrap it around the base and secure it underneath with the help of bobby pins.

Wear your chic bouffant ponytail to work or to a party!

This runway-inspired ponytail hairstyle looks quite interesting and is perfect for women with long, straight hair. However, if you have wavy hair, you too can try out this hairstyle and go for a tousled finish.

To make a high or a low bubble pony, just add extra hair elastics at regular intervals and pull the hair sections slightly to create a bubble effect.

Another stylish way to upgrade your ponytail is to pair it with a twist. To make this hairstyle, section off a section of your side hair and secure the rest in a low ponytail using an elastic. Twist the sectioned-off hair like a rope and wrap it around the base of the elastic, securing the ends with bobby pins and that's it – you have a new ponytail hairstyle in less than 5 minutes!

Get a sleek finish by applying some styling gel through your hair before tying it up in a pony. To achieve a slightly voluminous ponytail with a twist, spritz your roots with some high-lift creation hairspray and slightly tease your strands before styling them.
