Sleek or tousled, which ponytail hairstyle do you like best?

The humble ponytail, also known as the easiest updo ever (it totally counts!), is basically the best hairstyle ever, because it can be worn in many different ways. Two prime examples are super sleek and romantically tousled. Both approaches to this look are firm fashion week favorites and both are very wearable off the runway, too.

A simple hairstyle, the pony can bring a sense of minimalist chic to your look or, if you prefer, something a little wilder. The big question is, which style do you like best? Vote now!


A smooth, straight pony can be worn absolutely anywhere, with anything. It keeps the hair off the face, drawing attention to the eyes and cheekbones.

To style, flat iron the hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray. Afterward, mist with Strand-Smoother Serum Spray to banish flyaways and render an ultra-soft cashmere finish before gathering into a pony.


A more unkempt, disheveled pony is also a really accessible hairstyle. With more texture and some loose strands at the front, the silhouette of the face is softened. This means that a tousled pony can be a lot more forgiving to facial features than a harsher, tighter look.

To style, blow-dry the hair in twisted sections after applying Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray. Finger-comb once dry to reveal loose tousled waves, then gather into a loose, low pony. For added volume, tease the hair before tying it back. Finish with a mist of Bold Control Hairspray and you're good to go.
