The beauty of street style comes mainly from the new and inspiring ways that just about anybody can create a great new look but every now and then, a tried and true classic comes to the fore, just like this sleek high pony.

Ponytail hairstyles are simple and can even be prettier than more complicated, intricate looks. They also happen to be perfect for keeping hair well and truly under control, off of your face and neck but still involved in your look.

Like a topknot, a high pony is super practical and wearable for all kinds of different occasions, whether formal or totally casual.

Styling tips

Anyone can pull their hair back into a pony but it can be good to think about the many possible ways to add texture and detail to the look.

Teasing at the roots before you tie your hair back will add extra volume all over and create a softer look as will teasing the pony once it's been secured into place.

Alternatively, pulling hair back tight and smoothing over with hairspray on your palms will create a sleeker, stricter style.

Keep it simple

Despite the countless styling possibilities, sometimes it's best to just stick to the original and – some might argue – the best ponytail method. No fuss, no heat styling and ten extra minutes in bed in the morning all make a regular ponytail a perfect option to go with any outfit and a really great way of disguising a bad hair day.

Happy styling!
