But a plain old ponytail isn't going to make you stand out from the crowd! So, here are five simple ways to instantly make your ponytail hairstyle look fabulous.
Check them out below!
#1 Tie a ribbon
This is one of the easiest ways to make you look like you put in more effort styling your hair when in fact, you just tied a ribbon around your ponytail. We recommend going for plain sashes as they are more suitable for everyday wear. Ribbons look good with both high and low ponytails!
#2 Make a ponytail bun
Instead of a messy bun or normal ponytail hairstyle, incorporate both together to achieve an effortlessly gorgeous hairstyle! Pick up a portion of your hair from your ears and tie them into a loose, low and messy bun that looks like it's draping down like a ponytail. Curl the rest of your hair for the best effect.
#3 Tie a high half ponytail
If you prefer hairstyles that will make you look more youthful and lively, try tying a high half ponytail. Make sure the ponytail starts from the top of your head and amp up the cuteness with a scrunchie.
#4 Conceal the hair tie with a clip
Ponytails can look good on those with short hair too! If you have short hair, gather some hair on both sides of your face and pull them back, then secure with a hair tie to form a ponytail. Conceal the hair tie with a statement hair clip piece for a luxe look. This tip works on long hair too!
#5 Wrap the hair tie with hair
If you still prefer the usual ponytail hairstyle but want to make it look neater and more elegant, take a few strands of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the hair tie, then secure with a bobby pin underneath. This conceals the hair tie and makes it look as if you tied the ponytail using just your hair! This look is suitable for work and formal occasions.
