Which ponytail do you like best, teased or sleek?

The humble pony might be the world's best loved hairstyle, mostly because it's easy, versatile and can be worn anywhere, anytime. When deciding how you want to style a pony, size, texture and height are everything. They're what differentiates between a look that says lazy/gym chic, party queen or power-dressing go-getter. Low ponies are a safe bet, whatever the occasion, and the two contrasting looks featured above both have their merits.

So, teased or sleek, which is your favorite?

The bigger, the better?

Size isn't everything, but there's no doubt about the fact an XXL teased pony makes a real impact. Its dimensions do all the talking so it's a look best reserved for a night out and teamed with an intense beauty look that can pack a similar punch (just make sure to emphasize your eyes OR lips, not both, to avoid overwhelming your look).

Top tip - Create a whole lot of volume in no time at all by applying Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray and teasing with a fine-tooth comb.

Smooth operator

For the minimalists among you, a sleek, straight pony might be more your thing. It's a look that won't come off as controversial in the workplace and also happens to be a runway favorite. Seen on countless runways around the globe, it's basically an "everyday" alternative to the wet-look hair obsession that has taken over more catwalks than anyone can remember of late.

Top tip - To get the look at home, start with a smoothing blow-dry. Apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream and dry with a large barrel brush. Apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray when dry for ultra sleek results.

Which pony gets your vote?
