Which low ponytail do you like best?

Low ponytails are one of this season's biggest hairstyle trends and we just love how many styling options this gives us! We love low ponies with plenty of undone texture, another hairstyle staple this summer, but do you think they work better with tousled volume or a windswept French braid?

Let us know what you think by voting above!

Tousled voluminous ponytail

If you're struggling with dirty day two hair, or want a style that can tame thick locks, a tousled, voluminous ponytail is perfect for you! It's also a great look for humid days, too, because it makes the extra volume appear totally deliberate.

Styling tip

Absorb excess oil at the root and add lift with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray. The dry shampoo will freshen your hair and help to add texture when styling.

French braided ponytail

For those of you who enjoy braiding, try combining a windswept texture with a French braid for a more intricate look that requires no further embellishment. This pretty, understated look is perfect for balancing a pulled together ensemble, and it looks great with relaxed weekend attire.

Styling tip

Add texture with a toothbrush after completing the look with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray. This will give you a lot of control over where you texturize your finished style.
