You don't have to be Rapunzel to carry these styles off, just medium to long length hair and the right products. Ponytails are youthful, they can be sporty, chic, or wildly glamorous, and these textured styles are totally on trend. They're also a fabulously subtle way to hide a clip-in hairpiece or two!
The contrast between glossy and textured hair gives this look its contemporary edge, so don't crimp all of your hair unless you're going all out for a 1980's revival party. Remember to spray heat protectant on the sections to be pressed in the crimping iron.
High Volume Side Ponytail
A sexy and dramatic look that can be created in minutes, with a bit of mousse and some gentle backcombing at the top.
This sleek and sophisticated hairstyle showcases a glossy mane to superb effect, with the curled tips and the strands wrapped to adorn the hair tie. Serum will be your BFF when creating this look.
Tousled Bouffant Ponytail
We love the sexy, carefree glamour of this hairstyle, with its echoes of the 1950s. Blow-dry your mane with a volumizing mousse, lifting at the roots, and then lightly backcomb the crown. Gather into a ponytail, with more give for the upper hair. Roll stray tendrils round a curling iron and wrap the band with a lock of hair.
Get these gorgeously luxuriant waves by scrunching in a styling wax as you blow-dry. Tie your ponytail just underneath your ear so it can flow down your shoulder.
