The ponytail is a classic hairstyle that, for a lot of medium and long haired gals, is a beauty staple. Wherever you're going, a ponytail will keep your hair up and under control, without compromising on style.

Sometimes, though, it can be good to change things up so you don't get stuck in some kind of ponytail rut!

Add detail

A really easy way to completely change the way your ponytail looks is to embellish it. The simplest way to do that is by using a hair elastic to create sections or a criss cross effect.

Styling tip - So that your work doesn't go unnoticed because of frizz and flyaways, spray your hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray. It will add shine and flatten any fuzz as soon as it's applied.

Braid it

Braiding your ponytail is another great way to make it look brand new. You have several options to choose from, including a fishtail, a rope twist or a regular three-strand technique.

Styling tip - Braids work really well with an airy, windswept texture, so spray your hair with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Ceation Spray before putting it up. Muss with your fingers and tease with a fine-tooth comb if you want more volume.

What do you think? How will you take your tried and trusted ponytail to the next level?
