  • Ponytail inspiration
  •  Sleek side ponytail 
 A sleek side ponytail is perfect for when you want your hair to look polished, but don't want to spend much time styling.
  •  Wavy ponytail 
 A low ponytail is a chic look that demonstrates ease while keeping the lengths of your hair back and under control. With a few waves, this pony has plenty of momement, but the hair won't actually move much at all!
  •  Straight low ponytail 
 A sleek, straight low ponytail is a great hairstyle for work, and it's also a really good way to deal with dirty hair.
  •  Crimped pony 
 Crimped hair is making something of a comeback this season, and a really easy way to wear it is in a low ponytail. The zigzags act as an accessory!
  •  Curled ponytail 
 For a cute, vintge feel, try a low ponytail with curled ends. For great hold, don't skimp on the hairspray!
  •  Messy low ponytail 
 For an on-trend, textured look, a messy low pony is the perfect option. It's a great way to deal with bed head hair and you can add texture with dry shampoo before styling.
  •  French twist ponytail 
 A French twist pony combines the pulled-together feel of an updo with the effortless beauty of a low ponytail. What's not to love?
  •  French braided ponytail 
 To add detail to a regular low pony, try braiding from the crown of your head to the nape of your neck before securing it.
  •  Bubble ponytail 
 For a playful yet grownup look, try a bubble ponytail. Space some elastics a few inches apart along the length of the pony, then pull the bubbles out with your hands after securing all of the hair ties.
  •  Mid-height ponytail with a headband 
 When you need to keep your hair out of the way but don't want to compromise on style, a mid-height pony with a headband is the perfect go-to look!
